Well, much to the dismay and shock of more than a few people, I have pressed forward to do the unthinkable. Yes, dear readers of the blogosphere, I had received and am using an iPad. I figured some actual human being needed to write a review instead of those obviously closeted Apple fanboys and the other tech junkies who will literally buy any new gadget to collect it.
The name of the game: to test the iPad for a week, to see if I like it, to see what the actual positive and negative aspects of the machine are, and to give an accurate and honest opinion on how I experience the iPad.
So here goes: day one…
IPad arrives. I am not nearly as excited about it as I was about my MacBook. But that’s not a terrible thing.
Downloaded almost every free app available. Some are impressive, but some are lame.
Do not believe Steve Jobs when he tells you that typing on the iPad is a dream. My speed is severely compromised.
The screen size is nice with vivid colors and sharp images. The typing issue is still annoying me, but I can probably learn to adjust.
Or I can return it.
Positioning of hand to type is slightly odd.
But hey, at least I know this from first-hand experience.
