But I’m getting used to a new toy – and I usually do that through total emersion. I’ve gotten my first Apple product, a gift for my recent birthday from my wife. She is a geek at heart and what this means is she wants one too.
Anyway, the product is an Ipad. I bought a wireless keyboard to go with it (I and virtual keyboards don’t get along – even ones with pretty big keys like the Ipad’s).
To say I’m in love would be an understatement. What a marvelous product. And the more I learn the more I recognize its power.
Look, I’ve been around computers since the ’80s. I remember buying my first computer with a hard drive – 10 whole megabytes – and wondering what I’d do with all that storage space.
I’m sure I’ll find things I don’t like or aren’t particuarly well done, but I haven’t foiund them yet. This is an elegant, well thought out product that has almost unlimited potential in all sorts of areas. As for applications – well, you could probably spend your waking hours pouring through all the apps for this thing and still have years to go to get through them all.
Anyway, I hope to be back to semi-normal by tomorrow. This is being done on the WP app for Ipad (I got the 16gig WiFi model).
The Ipad is one of those products that I feel, within a few months, will have me wondering how I lived without. Until tomorrow, you’ll have to excuse me while I play and enjoy. See you then.
