I didn’t really know I needed an iPad until I got one. The boy decided a few weeks ago that he wanted one, and there was no way I was going to miss out, so I pre-ordered two. I got the 3G version, he just got wi-fi. Of course, we had to wait until last week for them to be available in Australia, but they went on sale last Friday at 9am and ours were delivered to the boy’s office at 9.05am. All good.
And oh how I love it! Playing games on my iPhone seems so crazy now. Why use that when I can have this glorious large screen? We both use our iPads a lot at home, and the boy takes his to work every day. I have no idea why, as the computer set-up on his desk includes FOUR screens, but as long as he’s happy, I guess. I can sit on the couch and read my emails, keep up with FaceBook, play games… the possibilities are endless. I have even downloaded some books. I still think the Kindle is better for reading, and there are no current books available in Australia – I’ve downloaded such lofty tomes as Moby Dick, The Three Musketeers, etc.
Just as an aside, I now own an iMac, MacBook Air, iPad, iPhone, and three iPods.
I wish I’d bought shares in Apple.
