Confessions of a Bad PF blogger: I Want an iPad
I almost didn’t write this post. You know how when you want something, and you start thinking about it, then you start talking about it… you only want it MORE? So, this is a dangerous post to write. The things I do for my blog readers…
A lot of people I know got iPads for Christmas. I got my Kindle Touch, so I wasn’t interested. It is basically just a giant WiFi-only smart phone. (I know you can get data plans, but I wouldn’t). I had an e-reader. I read my blogs on my regular laptop. And half of my internet-ing is WRITING, so how would an Ipad work out for me.
It was actually T’s idea. He told me that he saw somewhere that people would put recipes on them and stick them to the wall of the kitchen while they were cooking. “Yeah, but for $500?! That’s an expensive cookbook.”
The truth is, I really want a new lightweight laptop. I’m not getting one. I have no justification for it, mine is working (mostly) fine, and lightweight laptops are pricey. An iPad would meet the desire of a lightweight travel computer. I’d probably get a keyboard attachment to complete the package. Although, no one seems to do this – is there a reason? Or am I the only one who “needs” to be able to write?
Anyway, I’m not getting one…. yet. But I think we’ll get one in the next couple months.T has a macbook, so we’ll be able to use FaceTime (superior to trying to set up a webcam), and we’ll be doing lots of traveling back and forth to see each other. It wouldn’t be the worst way to spend $400.
What about you? Do you have an iPad? Do you want one?
