After a surprisingly positive experience at the Apple store (I picked up my reserved iPad at noon on Launch Day and was able to walk in and get helped immediately), I'm now 24+ hours into my iPad experience.  My initial impressions have been incredibly positive.                                               WHAT I LIKE It's really fast. (MUCH faster …

The iPad, a game changer? It sure frickin' feels like it!
In the week leading up to the arrival of my iPad via UPS, I was second guessing my decision to buy it out of the gates. Not that I didn't want the iPad, I just wasn't sure what gadget gap it would fill.      As it is I have a laptop, a MediaCenter PC, an iPhone, and a Kindle, I wasn't sure where the iPad fit in. After 24 hours of intense use, the kindle is to the curb, my laptop is jealous, and the iPhone is glad it has phone (barely) capabilities. For all the reasons I …

Last night i just got the 32G iPad.      First off, I'll leave all the detailed fawning over the coolness of this thing to the fanboys, but will say it is super cool toy.  I just want to play with it.        But here are my issues with it.       First off, you can't even turn it on until you connect it to the apple store to buy their products... called... duh... iTunes.  When you take it out of the box there are 3 simple …

It's difficult to write a review of a product that I've never used, but I'm so excited about Apple's iPad, that I couldn't help myself.      I will admit, I've been watching the rumors of the iTablet/iSlate/iBook/iPad for months, and I got swept up in the predictions that this would be the Magic Do Everything device.  So when the actual iPad was finally revealed, I was initially disappointed.  However, after some time to absorb the details, as well as take the price …

iLove my iPad
April 2010 was a big month.  The iPad was finally released after months of hype and all I knew is that I wanted one.  Unfortunately, during that portion of the year and my wedding coming up, it wasn't realistic (not to mention Apple couldn't keep them in stock anyway).  Well, almost eight months later, I finally purchased my iPad!  Mind you, I got the basic 16GB model without 3G, but none the less, it's an iPad.  Need less to say, it is probably the best purchase …

Ok, Steve Jobs woke me up for this... I was already on the way to bed and man, the man launches an iPad? iPad?! Seriously? What's the date? Jan. 27? Why Jan. 27?      Revolutionary? Well, I'm sure it's revolutionary... well, at least the way I've to relearn to type! I can type pretty fast on the keyboard now, I don't think he demonstrated how fast someone could type on an iPad! I hope it won't be a major source of frustration! We are supposed to be ready …

Ipad Flight
On a recent cross-country flight with my soon-to-be two year old daughter, I discovered the true magical nature of the iPad -- its ability to keep her entertained for several hours while confined to her seat.  She spent time drawing with Adobe Ideas, reading The Cat In the Hat and watching several episodes of Yo Gabba Gabba and Dora the Explorer.        All was going well until the passenger seated at the window asked to pass by us to use the restroom.  As I closed …

I'm underwhelmed by this iPad thing, especially with all of the hype surrounding it.  It's no secret that I'm a well documented iPhobe, but I've tried to put that aside and be objective here.   I predict that only the most hardcore iSheep will be flocking to this overgrown iPod Touch.  I can see a future for the device and others like it, but it's not there in the present. What's wrong with it? No camera. No phone calling. Another $30/month for unlimited Internet access on top of …

Well, the Apple is finally out of the bag today as the mythical "iPad" is unveiled.  But did the public receive the news as Steve intended?  Was the "shock" good, bad, or ugly? Perhaps it's too early to tell whether the iPad will be a success or failure because time is needed to see how things look when the dust settles.   But, it's not too early to discuss first impressions... so here's the 'skinny' on the iPad.      The Good:   …

The iPad Experience: great 1st gen device, definitely not for everyone.
I had made up my mind during the 2 months or so between the announcement of the Apple iPad and its release date that I was not going to get one, or so I thought. I figured the UI would be fantastic as it was running the same OS as the iPhone but with a bit more horsepower and my iPhone 3GS was a pleasure to use, jailbroken with multitasking. The key feature, or lack thereof, that swayed my decision was the fact that just like the iPhone, any video you wanted play from the device locally …

People who know me know that I like screens. I have five screens at my desk at work and two in my home office. I learned a long time ago that I was more productive when everything is visible and I don't have to switch back and forth between applications. I often quote this Microsoft research that says you are 9 to 50 percent more effective with multiple screens so my IT department will let me have another display. So, when I was presented with the opportunity to buy an iPad, I thought of it as another …

Pros: Just the right size; lightweight, 64GB of RAM; big, bright display; many functional uses.      Cons: Could use a USB ports; no multi-tasking.      The Bottom Line: So far the iPad 64GB Wi-Fi has more than lived up to my expectations and I have no regrets concerning my decision to buy one.      The Apple iPad.  Those of us who own one have recently been called less than flattering names for daring to use it and enjoying the experience!  …

   Two years ago a rumors about a revolutionary device began to spread -- it became the most anticipated piece of technology and it was code named "iSlate" Fast forward and today we get our first look at the matured version of the iPod touch -- iPad. (Okay, the name...well it stinks, but consider some alternatives: iPed, iPid, iPud?) The iPod is all grown up now and boy is she pretty. This is only a partial review since I was only allowed to play with it for about an hour -- …

Calling the iPAD a bigger iPOD completely misses the point.
The ipad will sit on a charger/stand in my Bedroom dimmed out  at night, with merely the clock /date displayed at night.  The dimmed screen will act as a nightlight. Morning comes too soon, and the alarm rings. After pushing the virtual "Snooze" button a couple of times to get the extra few minutes sleep, I push the virtual "Dismiss" button and get up.  The clock disappears and iPad displays my favorite photograph of the day and plays Pandora music …

People forget, especially the Apple fanboys, that not all of Apple's inventions have been received like the iPod, and I suspect the iPad may well be one of these because it doesn't seem to solve any particular problem. Many manufacturers have tried and failed with tablets over the years - it's like the Afghanistan of hardware - so it'll be interesting to see how it plays out.      What exactly is the iPad, except for Saint Jobs' latest spectacularly-poorly-named gadget?   …

These are just my thoughts about the Apple's new iPad:      First off: ITS NOT A COMPUTER, SO DONT BUY IT FOR THAT REASON (Its a damn tablet!!)      Second off, I want to say that... ITS NOT A F***ING MACBOOK!!! It's just a "High-End, Top-of-the-line" E-reader or a beefed up iPhone (or apples own netbook), its a fucking tablet! SO STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW IT DOESN'T HAVE HDMI, MINIDISPLAY PORT OR OUTPUTS! If you really want all that s**t, then …

5 Ways Apple's iPod can help you as a contractor
This is pretty cool, my brother just wrote up a cool review on how Contractors and other Salesman can use the ipad. Here it is:       As the resident geek at DiggersList, I was excited a month ago when Apple announced it was going to be introducing a new revolutionary product by the end of January. My friends, it is here: Cue angelic choirs from the skies... photo credit: Los Angeles Times Introducing Apple’s new “iPad”. For those of you who are wondering …

Apple introduced its iPad this past week and in doing so helped me make a decision as to what device I was going to purchase to fill the need that I was going to try to fill with either a netbook or an e-reader, or both.  Thankfully they hit a home run with their introduction of the iPad.  The 1024 X 768 IPS display means that my iTunes library will be useful on a device without having to strain my eyes to watch the videos on a small low resolution screen.  It also means that I do …

Apple's iPad is truly a magical device. Since this community is focused on reading and books this review will focus mostly on that use of the iPad but the device is great for a number of things, reading just being one use.     Apple, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble all have eReaders designed for the iPad, each with its respective store. Each of the three software pieces has its own strong points but all are great for reading. Browsing for a new book is especially fun in iBooks …

Very versatile
I'm saving my money up for this one.  I have a friend who has one and I fell in love with it.  Read books, have it read to you, and a GPS all in one.  It doesn't get any better than this.  More expensive than a Kindle, but with all its versatility it is the e-gadget to have!

I knew I wanted an Ipad - I had not idea how much I would love - or how much I would use it. What an amazing techo triumph for my favorite computer company
Quick Tip by . August 09, 2010
The iPad has replaced my Nintendo DS, PSP, netbook, laptop and paper books! It has been an answer to my prayers. I cart it everywhere. I purchased the Wifi edition and use my Palm Pre cell phone as a hotspot for internet connection. The only draw back to the ipad is that it can not display flash videos or movies. Hopefully apple will come up with an alternative to this dilemma.

I have to say I am rather excited by the iPad and what it heralds. I have long been waiting for a device which really starts to steer us towards convergence and I believe this might be it.  I was sitting in a meeting yesterday with a representative from the publishing world who is trying to develop a digital publishing model in my country.  When I mentioned that convergence was necessary he cut me off at the pass and insisted that they could sell specialised e-book readers to around 25% …

Great hardware, but no practical use cases for me. However, this is an awesome device for kids to entertain themselves.
