Trillian - my iPad

Trillian - my iPad

I’ve already mentioned it on Twitter: I have got myself an iPad! When I first heard about this new piece of technology I didn’t think much of it, why would I want an iPad when I have a computer? But the more I heard about it the more I liked the idea. Markus constant nagging helped in the decision-making too ;) So I bought one about a month ago, and so far I’m impressed.

When I bought it I wasn’t really sure what to use it for, but now I actually find myself using the iPad more often than I use the computer. If I want to check my email or just do some light surfing, I turn to the iPad since it’s just so much more comfortable to lean back in the couch than to sit at the desk. I think that is the biggest perk for me, my laptop is way to big and heavy to sit comfortably in my lap. And it gets way to hot. The iPad is small and lightweight and never even get warm.

Most apps I’ve tried so far work really well, I actually prefer the app-version of for example Facebook. I’m also getting kinda addicted to the game TinyZoo :blush: I’m thinking about purchasing a Spotify subscription too now that I have a portable device.

The only thing I don’t like is that I can’t view Flash videos and the iPad version of YouTube doesn’t seem to have nearly as many videos as the “real” version…
But other than that – and the apple on the back – I’m pleased ^_^

(Yeah, I named her Trillian. Anything else would be ridiculous, right?)
