the universal ipad – Why?

I went to a conference in February armed with a laptop, only to find that the majority of people there had an iPad or iPad 2. I was astounded. It made me think, why do all these people want an iPad? Is it a fad? Are they playing games and checking their email instead of listening to the speakers? What IS the pull?

After a couple of days, I started to understand more. There I was trying to find a power supply, booting up the laptop, logging in, etc; whilst the “ipadders” flipped open the cover and away they went.

I HAD to have one…

So, approximately six weeks later mine arrived. I’ve never looked back.

There is always something new to download that is interesting; be it an ebook, app, music, video or podcast. It supports me in just about every facet of my life. I have recipe books, fictional books, games for my children, TV series that I like, email, internet, my favourite tunes, educational material, all rolled into one neat little 24cm x 18cm package.

I find something new every day and I learn something new every day; either by myself, or in discussions with other people. Hence the Universal iPad.
