I have a new friend. Her name is .... well, I don't have a name for her yet. But she's my new iPad and I love her.
I haven't yet figured out how best to use her at work other than for playing games (because we DO have slow times at work). You can see I have a regular ole computer right in front of me so it's hard to pick one over the other.
In the meantime, be jealous. Very jealous.
Let's go on a tour of her most fun features (sorry for the crappy pictures, I'm using my iPhone because I don't tote my SLR camera to work everyday. plus, I'm bored and this was what I came up with the photograph):
1. iBooks. I will use this to replace my Kindle which I sold to my dear mother. Don't you love the cute look of the wooden shelves where all my books are stored. Not sure if you can see it, but the iPad comes with your own shiny copy of "Winnie the Pooh." Apple got me there - no idea why THAT book would be your first default book, but it IS 361 pages - not too shabby, Winnie.
2. Videos! I can still watch Gilmore Girls (which I am putting off finishing because I just can't stand for it to be over!) in style. Used to watch it on the laptop, but the iPad is plenty spacious for TV watching.
3. Lastly (for now until I can take better photos), is the cool case. This bad boy has a little slot in the back where the front flap fits and props up the laptop like a drunk college girl at 2am. I love it. It makes it so much easier to use. I am so looking forward to getting this wonderful keyboard dock, though. T'will make it seem as if I still have a laptop:
For me, the iPad is so great. Just the right size, portable as can be, and roomy.
