oh okay, most of these photos were actually shot by my Blackberry and not my iPad2, i was just trying to be clever in the title. and it turns out it’s not just my USB card reader that’s incompatible with OSX Lion (hence still not being able to extract the photos from my camera), the USB/charge cord for my b-berry doesn’t work either. i had to e-mail these pictures to my pretty brand spanking new MacBook Air instead. (sigh, dear Steve, why hast thou forsaken me? i’d probably have been tempted to make some kind of declaration about how i feel like killing somebody at Apple right now, but uh— yah maybe never mind.)
just something to perhaps still keep in mind the next time you haul all your snazzy state of the art equipment halfway around the world.
