It's okay :shrug:
Technically, I guess it's good.
But I have a laptop, and I have an iPod... I don't see the need for an iPad I guess.

you know, I was going to go into that, but I just didn't.

The only reason I can really see I'd want an iPad for is for ebooks and reading... but a kindle is just as good for that and wayyy cheaper with a long battery life smaller and lighter....
(my sister and my brothers girlfriend both have an iPad)

elaborate please?
I don't know if I know what you're talking about?

Just like, you can't read it in the dark because you'd need a lamp?
Or it needs a specific source of light?

It is not back-lit, while the iPad is. So, you can't read on the bus in the early morning if the reading light above you is broken or the driver decides not to turn them on (it is a power thing).

ooooh, okay I get it :P
Sorry, I'm kinda slow when it comes to technology.

That'd be sort of disappointing in a way. 90 percent of the time, I'd probably be in a lit place, but on drives to see family (12 hours), I think it'd be kinda bummy since I'd like to use it then. :hmm:

I don't really need an entire iPad though :( damn it.

There are many cheap book lights that you can buy, so the kindle can be the solution as well!

If you have an Ipod Touch then why do you need an Ipad ?

Yes, but the resolution for the small display is really good, compared to my iPod late 2009 itīs really something different. The iPad however has a nice display too, but itīs not nearly as sharp as the iPhone 4..

I have one of these super durable protector shields on it, so little cleaning is required. Maybe you should stop using it as a plate for your peanut-butter sandwiches :giggle:

How about "it looks nice"

I don't have one, but I've played around. They seem really fun and the apps look great. If the price weren't so high, I'd get one because it would be nice to lounge out with an iPad rather than my laptop. Until then, I'll just enjoy my iPhone.

Can't say I know that much about them, but I would like to find out! It has drawbacks that I would find annoying, but am sure I'd find a way around them.

It also needs more third party development on applications to make it more versatile but theres nothing actually wrong with it like a lot of people think.

I hope so. I heard apple has been enacting a lot of control over their products and applications for said products recently which makes me sad for I love apple! They have been a bit off lately in my opinion. They still make lovely computers though! :D

It just needs to be a bit cheaper. Its like an aultra kindle so people need to stop comparing it to a computer. If it were cheaper I would consider buying one if I had any money. :)

Sure, here are some that I have now:

LightTrac is great for landscape photographers
Slingmedia because I have a slingbox at home and can now watch live tv
Pandora for music
Friendly for facebook
Sportstap for sport scores
Angrybirds HD for fun :)
Reply
:iconingoschobert:
IngoSchobert Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
I read somewhere about that Friendly for Facebook, why would you not use the web browser instead?

And I will have to check out that LightTrac app. I do have AngryBirds, but not HD, mine if from my iPhone. I assume I would have to buy the HD version then again (the iPhone version sucks in it's lack of detail on the iPad)?

Thanks a lot,

Ingo

Comes to show that our understanding of "forever" is rather limited, at least sometimes we forget to look into things from a longer term perspective, IBM <-> Microsoft <-> Apple <-> Droid, all are only a temporary entity in our world :)

The iPad is not worth its price. Its a great thing you can have fun with, the apps run smoothly and the display is great, but itīs way too expensive. You get a gaming laptop for the same money, which can do a lot more things and is faster. So it wouldnīt be my choice. Iīm happy with my iPod, as long as Angry Birds is on it :P
