Part of the many resolutions for 2012 was to do something crazy every month. For the month of April I bought an iPad.
I’ve been on the fence on whether to buy an iPad or not. I never really understood the purpose of having an iPad since you can do more with a MacBook (Pro). I sstrongly considering when I found a digital copy of the Animorph series and wanted an e-reader to read it on. I thought maybe a Kindle by Amazon or a Nook by Barnes and Noble, but they were quickly over-ruled when I realized Kindle had a Mac app. So it was settled on which device I would get (iPad). But…
the price. Lawd. Sigh. $$$
So I sat on it for a while and even asked Natasha to write up a review of her iPad to help sway me. But she’s an academic student, and I’m a designer so totally different uses; however she did mention a lot of things that appealed to me.
And then I won the Bloggers in Sin City/GelaSkins contest. So I *had* to get the iPad. Well… I didn’t have to but I needed a somewhat valid excuse to charge my credit card! But I’ve had it for over 2 weeks and I love it. I am now a reader!
