A week ago I wrote about a belated birthday gift that I was anxiously awaiting. Well, on the morning of April 3rd, it arrived. My husband had ordered an iPad for me!
This thing is SO cool! I’ve had it for a week now and have yet to figure out all it can do. Since my husband has been out of town, my time on it has been very limited. I mean, how can I argue with my 3 year old daughter when she says, “Mommy, put the iPad down”?!
My first impressions are:
*The battery life is freaking amazing.
*This little tablet will seriously do just about everything a laptop will do.
*It was a much cheaper purchase for us than laying down at least a grand for an additional Apple laptop.
*The iPad is exactly what I need to perform my responsibilities for our business.
*As far as fun stuff goes, I am having a blast with the applications. I know I will find many more that I enjoy, but right now the Netflix app is my favorite. If you are a Netflix subscriber, you can watch movies and tv shows instantly on your iPad. Most of the newly designed iPad apps are in HD, which make them visually top-notch.
My only complaints are:
*It doesn't support Adobe Flash. This is a big downer at this point for us, mainly because our company's website was built via Flash. But we knew this fact before we made the purchase, so we will manage without it.
*There's a bug on the Blogger website that's not allowing me to type my posts directly into Blogger. Up to this point, I've been typing them in a separate application then copying and pasting into Blogger. SURELY they will fix this soon!!! (HINT HINT)
A few reviews worth glancing over if you're in the market for an Apple iPad:
Laptop Killer? Pretty Close!
Verdict is in on Apple iPad: It's a Winner
The iPad Launch: Can Steve Jobs Do It Again?
My husband gets two thumbs up plus a big hug and kiss when he gets home for a great birthday gift! ; )
I did not receive any compensation for this post.
