We have an iPad. I know there are people out there who would be as happy as clams to say they have one of these things and it’s not that I’m not happy but I’m not sure what to do with it to make sure I get the full benefit of this oversized iTouch – KWIM?
The good news is the iPad was a gift. But still I feel a need to justify the cost. I mean really, we’ve got an invisible fence system in the yard that the darn dog completely ignores – so since that hasn’t exactly turned out to be a wise investment - I’m all about value for the dollar lately. I know SOME of you who may be reading right now are thinking “hmmmmm, when has SHE ever been overly concerned about cost or value????” But - IT’S TRUE – sometimes things seem completely frivolous - even to me. I KNOW!
Anyway, the iPad is fun. And you don’t have to be so darn careful when using those pesky fingers on the touch screen. AND there are some fun games – like Traffic Jam (???). But it seems to be missing Fingerzilla - at least I haven’t found it yet. HotY – are you listening – the Fingerzilla application – can you get it? Sorry just a little personal note.
The HotY is using it for reading books (me I like to hold the real things in my hands – hard cover is the best). The kids want to use it for games. David Letterman recently pointed out that it makes a great portable picture frame. All uses well worth the price tag (please envision me rolling my eyes). But it’s a toy so it doesn’t have to have a real purpose right????
