I have wanted an iPad from day one, but I just didn't really know how much I would use it. The turning point came when Billy and I started sharing my laptop. Sharing a computer is difficult. We both like to spend a fair amount of time on the computer doing different things. Billy does a lot of research and blog reading. I read blogs, books, and do a lot with my photography. We eventually want to get a desktop computer for Billy, but the one he wants just doesn't fit in our budget at present. So, I ordered an iPad 2. We opted for 32 gigs and just the wifi. I have been using it for about a week now and I am absolutely in LOVE!!
With the exception of my photography stuff, I can pretty much do everything else on the ipad. There is a bit of an adjustment to the way some of my apps work. For example, when I use the iPad version of amazon some of the navigation buttons appear at the bottom of the screen instead of at the top. Getting used to the touchscreen keyboard requires a bit of practice as well. But I'm getting better and faster everyday and it is way cool! Reading my ebooks and magazines on the ipad is a dream. I only have one problem. I think I'm becoming addicted to the apple bookstore and all those down loadable apps available to me. Hey.....maybe there is an app for that! LOL!
