Let’s go Pens!
Got my new ipad today, after my old one, an original I bought when they first came out, had a tragic death when I dropped it down the stairs. In the Ipad’s defense, there are only so many web searches for Kate+upton+cat+daddy that any self respecting computing device can make, so it may have thrown itself down the stairs in an attempt to escape.
Mistermix does a lot of reviews of computing devices, but it really just boils down to this for me. I maintain a top of the line PC for a variety of uses, including gaming, not to mention the fact that I really just like working at a desktop station. But for handheld devices, if you want to pull me away from Apple, you need to make a better phone/tablet/laptop combo than what Apple has to offer. I use my mac mini to sync all my devices, I have several multiple terabyte external HD’s holding all my music on the mac mini hooked up to the tv and stereo, and it took me all of three minutes to fire up my new Ipad and install all my apps and have it hooked up to my wireless, and then I was done as it transferred files.
Beat that, and I will give you other tablets a look. But for now, there is simply nothing superior to the design, feel, and operation of Apple products. Sorry Chinese kids.
One last thing. My brother’s cat Speak (he’s the male, Whisper is his sister) is going on 12 and has lost a lot of weight and is in the kitty hospital tonight. The vet thinks it is a virus and not something horrible, but regardless, cross your fingers and think happy thoughts for Speak. My brother just loves those two, and the idea of Whisper not having her brother she has spent her whole life with makes me upset.
