A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 152. – I’ve had Pages on my iPad (and iPhone) since Apple released it and I use it on occasion for limited things. As we transition more and more into Tim Cook’s “post-PC” era I see myself doing more and more things on my iPad, but so far I think I’ve not taken full advantage of iWork on the iPad. A big reason why is that I haven’t taken the time to fully understand the tools within the new touch interface paradigm. With this episode I hope to remedy that a bit.

I played around with making my own Status Board panel and in just a little bit of time was able to build a panel to show Apple’s current stock price. Panic even provides a nice little sample in the form of a How Many People are in Space Right Now panel, which is what I based mine on (just view source ;) ). When you’re done there is even a URL you can build up to share your panel with other Status Board users. If you’d like my $AAPL Stock Panel just click this link from an iPad with the Status Board app installed:
