If you love Major League Baseball, you'll love MLB's At Bat app for the iPad. The tablet's expansive display gave the software's designers lots of room to be creative, and they took advantage of it. Habitues of the MLB website will see a familiar interface in the iPad app. Like the website's Gameday feature, you look at the field from behind home plate. A graphic of a hitter appears in an appropriate batter's box. The strike zone is a tinted box over the plate. As each pitch is thrown, its location appears on the screen.

MLB Subscription Portable?
Posted by: RayCon 2010-04-26 17:00:31 In reply to: John P. Mello Jr.
I have heard (from comments about the iPad app in the App Store) that MLB subscriptions are not portable. If I were to subscribe on my Mac, it would not be transferable to my iPad. Hence, if I wanted the subscription on my iPad, I would need to pay twice. This would be unlike other services where you would receive a user name and password, and if you had a valid subscription, it would be valid on any device. Can anyone comment on this?

What was your initial reaction to news of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack?
It demonstrates that all critical infrastructure sectors are at high risk of disruption by cybercriminals.
Everyone will be paying for this attack in the form of higher energy costs.
Governments need to work more closely with private industries to protect networks for the sake of public safety.
It's a global problem. An international alliance must be formed to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent future attacks.
