This ad was on the side of the bus shelter in Chicago.
I've had my Ipad for 10 days now and each day brings new surprises and uses.
First and foremost it is a computer in my handbag, smaller than a file of papers and it contains:-
The book that I'm reading which happens to be "Three cups of tea."
But waiting in the wings I have reference books on quilting which I downloaded free, the history of art and many other reference books.
The interface is just like reading a real book, not a typewritten page. The pages flip with reality.
I have over 10.000 photos installed.
I write a personal journal in handwriting and add photos each day.
It stores all my plane tickets, hire car vouchers, accommodation, etc… so does my computer, but that's not in my handbag!!!!
It syncs to my other computers and updates my diary instantly.
Apps in a much larger form, (unavailable on a computer) keep track of everything I'm doing and remind me of up coming appointments just by sending my receipt for travel to a central point.
I can sketch on it, paint on it…listen to digital radio and watch television…. and it's stored in my handbag.
I was in the bank today and Rainee, my friend showed it to all who ventured through the door.
I've used it every day, in fact when I told the story to the children at school yesterday, the pictures and sound were on the Ipad.!!!!
I just can't quilt on it, but I'm going to work on that.
Can you tell I'm in love !!!!
