RIP: Why the iPad ‘killers’ are already dead  —  iPad is huge, big, massive hit, an echo of the iPod effect on the MP3 player market and the iPhone effect on the mobile world.  Apple has stolen the tablet/netbook industry to the extent competitors face a pretty tough time in even manufacturing their ‘iPad killers’.

The AngelList  —  There are a growing number of resources for entrepreneurs on the web, but certainly one of the very best is Venture Hacks.  And their AngelList service is particularly useful for entrepreneurs trying to get angel rounds done.  I found myself recommending it to at least a half dozen entrepreneurs this past week.
