Moving a step ahead. Blogging from Apple’s iPad.
I am in the habit of beginning a new post with the lines – “it’s been a while…” or something similar. But it has indeed been a while. A lot has changed during this while. I have moved from being a bachelor to married and from desktops to laptops to iPads. Recently as a wedding gift my husband – a man whom I impressed with this very blog – gifted me an iPad, Apple’s very new product and as usual a “revolutionary one”.
I thought I would use it as a blogging machine as well and here I am writing from Columbus in Ohio while searching for the popular German village on this very device. Here are my few cents about this device.
General opinion: Mind blowing. Exceptional graphics. Damn expensive. High recurring costs – you have to pay for the best apps, and subscribe to at&t’s data plan to have Internet on the go. Needless to say the services are ok at best in Canada.
For the reader: Excellent reading on this book-size machine. The brightness is awesomely controlled so that I can read with ease in extreme brightness or darkness – something that has always bothered me about LCD. I won’t mind saying that device will successfully replace the concept of physical books. And why not, when I can download all the classics for free ( you need to install amazon’s kindle with whisper sync application for free for this) or a negligible price and help Canada keeps it’s Kyoto promise? I guess the later is just a by product.
This device is so cool that Kindle has gone down by 60 USD since I got this little thing in my hand. I am glad that we did not opt for amazon’s Kindle.
So let me return to hunt the German village again. Adios!
