iPad, What is it Good For?
April 07, 2010

Just think of the old Edwin Starr tune (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pIqxuygWwM) and sing along "iPad, what is it good for - absolutely something".

So far, yes to games, no to browsing while watching TV - can't have IM or another app running and it's a real pain to page down with a swipe after a while. Of course I'm comparing it to the Mac Air, which actually feels lighter. And with a notebook, I can close it and feel like it won't suffer any dog or kid damage. The iPad screen is always out and vulnerable.

Book reading is yet to be determined; it's a lot heavier than the Kindle. I hope to try that out later tonight.

It sure does look purty though.
