It’s Friday, January 29, or iPad Announcement day + 2, and I’ve already made the decision.
I was taken by the iPad immediately. Despite the hate the thing seemed to generate from so many corners I made a pretty quick decision to make a 64GB + 3G iPad my primary computing device.
Impossible? We’ll see…
As I describe below, it won’t technically be my sole computing device. But for all intents and purposes it will function as such, replacing my laptop.
This blog is going to recount my experience. Once I get my hands on the iPad and download the wordpress app, I will blog from it exclusively.
What I use now:
– A 3.5 year old MacBook Pro. I do “everything” on this machine except what’s outlined below. This is the machine I will retire for the iPad.
– A 2 year old iMac. This is my home’s central media hub. All photos, videos, music, and iPhone apps are stored here. This is where I rip, store, and sync media. THIS IS THE ONLY THING I USE THIS COMPUTER FOR now, and it’ll stay that way once I get my iPad.
– iPhone 3GS 32GB. I’ll keep this of course, and will no doubt replace when Apple does another hardware rev (wants: 5MP camera, 64GB storage, and yeah a front facing camera would be cool…)
So what are we going to talk about for the next 2-3 months? Somehow I have a feeling we’ll think of something. Anticipation is a beautiful thing!
