It's Like God and Steve Jobs got together to give me the best Birthday EVER!



Ha, Totally stole that line from this past week's "Modern Family" which is a HILARIOUS show. If you don't watch it, you are really missing out. Few shows make me laugh out loud constantly like that one. Saturday afternoon when dropping off Marshall Colquett's computer to get worked on, Erik's and I got a little hands on with the new iPad. I have to tell you, if you are mildly interested in the ipad, then holding one and playing with it will totally sell you on it. It's beautiful, and it is better than I expected.
Now I wont get into a huge debate with all the haters about WHY and such things. I will just say, I, personally, am a huge apple fan, I believe in all their products, and now with baby on the way, a 25lb computer bag isn't all that practical anymore. A 1.5 lb ipad however, will totally fill that gap beautifully. I can tend to baby and hold the ipad in the other hand, Travel easily with it etc. So when my bubble snubs suggested to me that I wanted one for my birthday, it took me about 3 seconds to agree!
Sus was quick to point out on facebook that my Birthday is not until the 29th but in Grizaland all Holidays get a full month of celebration, especially birthdays!

Here is a great online review of first thoughts from Cult of Mac

I have not purchased any accessories for it yet, because as usual, all the ones in the store are way over priced! I am currently searching around on ebay, even though I LOVE that neon case from Incase Designs.

FYI: Cases on ebay are like $10 instead of $30

I also was not aware that apple was releasing a piece so that you can load pics straight from your camera to the ipad. That was a huge deal for me and needs more publicity. You can buy the dongle here.

My initial review is that is is :
  • beautiful
  • faster response than any iphone
  • most native apps are better and more functional on ipad than they are on my computer like mail and calendar. You may not really grasp that until you have played on one b.c I have heard other reviews say that and not really understood until now.
  • speaker volume is impressive
  • I can type very easily with 2 hands portrait style. I think that will be different for everyone.
  • Battery life is exceptional.
That is about as far as I have gotten. I have not tried out the ibooks app or anything else yet. Still mesmerized by all the other features. I will review more later!
