Yes, yes, yes. It has lots of OBVIOUS, IRRITATING flaws that we all know will be slowly, painfully ‘fixed’ one generation at a time. But, like a hot date with thighs you could crack your fidelity on – it doesn’t really matter what it does right now, you just want to hold it.
The best reviews I could find tonight came from WIRED: ‘Can Apple’s IPad Save the Media’ - I still firmly believe that if its easy and worth the experience – people will pay for good media. And, Gizmodo – who were less complementary – their article got so many hits tonight the page crashed. Check out 8 Things That Suck About the IPAD.
But for me, its the perfect bedfellow. I can watch a bit of television with it, listen to some music, read a book, and when I’m done it slots neatly into my knicker drawer.
My iphone is just a little bit small for me to do any ‘real work’ on, and I because I try to avoid ‘real work’ as much as possible – I don’t want to carry a computer – so the IPad just works. Its pretty, its the perfect.. ahem.. size, and it almost does all I need.
Its simple, it provides me with all my multimedia requirements, and I don’t need a PHD in Technology to get the best out of it.
So whilst the digi-boys guffaw at the all the shortfalls of the ipad – I say its the perfect partner for a girl like me.
Shame about the inability to multitask. But isn’t that always the way?
