There is no denying that Weber material retails at a premium compared to other creators. But then again, he does not mass market to the magic community. The price is hefty and more than I have ever spent on one item in magic, but I sort of justified it by dividing the total by 18 (the anticipated nu...

I updated my IOS to 9.0 last night. Although the app doesn't crash my iPad anymore, it is still buggy.

I did intend to carry around my iPad if WiFi was available at the convention. My phone is a BlackBerry so I guess the app isn't available for that device.
