So. The iPad
It's really neat, technology and aesthetic-wise. I especially like the 'bookstore'-type program where you can read books and immediately purchase them if you like them. The calendar looks really user-friendly too. I wouldn't mind messing around with that.
It's virtually just like a computer, only it's just...a screen that you touch. no keyboard, mouse, or anything. (a keyboard does pop up on screen where you can touch-type, though. It's large, so it shouldn't be a pain to type in). The only issue I have with this iPad is that, well, it's not
a computer. I'm pretty sure that it doesn't have anywhere near the capacity of a normal computer, and programs that I use everyday probably won't be compatible with it, such as Adobe Creative Suite programs, computer games, etc.
From the looks of it, the iPad is supposed to support internet and Apps, as well as media storage for things like photographs and movies. And it's great for office work, such as emailing, scheduling, etc. The software for all of these things look so easy to use and just awesome. If these things are all you need in your electronic device, then the iPad looks pretty goddamn amazing, seriously.
But I have a lot more that I like to do, and I need a computer to do those things. So until Apple creates a full-blown computer that's just a giant touch screen, I'm afraid I won't be buying the iPad any time soon.
