My iPad has come in to its own since I downloaded the Longform app, which shoots brilliantly selected long articles at you. It's productive procrastination at its best. One gem is the story of Daniel Kish - the blind man who 'sees' with sonar.
"The first thing Daniel Kish does, when I pull up to his tidy gray bungalow in Long Beach, California, is make fun of my driving. “You’re going to leave it that far from the curb?” he asks. He’s standing on his stoop, a good 10 paces from my car. I glance behind me as I walk up to him. I am, indeed, parked about a foot and a half from the curb."
Bewilderingly impressive.

This is a fantastic animation. Equally engaging is the Making Of, if that's your thing
