The first time I pulled my iPad out on a plane, the people around me watched with lust-filled eyes. I value and practice humility, but this was too much. Yes, bow to me you late adopters.
I’m an early adopter when it comes to technology, always wanting to own the latest and greatest. I have to have the new thing the day it’s available for sale, even knowing that if I wait a few months the price will drop and they’ll have all the bugs fixed. So yes, I have the New Gadget iPad–Apple’s innovation in the realm of tablet computers. In fact, I have two. I didn’t want my first one to be lonely.
My iPad is cool. Way cool. It’s beautiful 9.7 inch IPS back-lit display can show content in landscape or portrait orientation, with a 178 degree viewing angle. Yes, 178 degrees. Believe it! Its state-of-the-art touch screen responds to the movement of your fingers allowing you to do things like zoom in on content just by pinching your fingers together. Want to zoom back out? Just pull your fingers apart. It’s heavenly.
