never buy hardware until version 1.3

mood: morose

I have no real feeling for the iPad, pro or con, though Apple and Steve Jobs's record of getting things right is pretty good lately: iPod, iPhone, OS X, MacBooks. But I have learned that hardware is tricky to get right. My advice is not to be the first to buy something brand-new like this, as the first thousands may be variable quality. These things happen.







Other than that, my day was awful: I was tired and completely unproductive at work, home, and fandom. *sulks*

I hope today is better in your world. Mine is starting off pretty much the way you've described your yesterday: tired and unproductive in all spheres. ... So if you have a good day today, I can hope for tomorrow. Right?

I was going to ask your opinion. Frankly, I am championing the iPad because I want to knock amazon on their ass.

It may well be a good thing, though not as obviously brilliant as the iPod and iPhone. The really funny part is that Bill Gates loves the idea of a tablet computer and has tried to sell one every other year since about 1990. If Steve Jobs ships a successful one, it will totally burn his ass. Richest man in the world, and he can't ship a tablet PC.

*hugs* I hope you feel better!

I think the iPad is about as useless as netbooks, really. Any computer that has limited abilities means you'll need both, unless you just don't use computers for much else than internet and basic word processing. It's a giant iPhone with no phone.

We are so not the target audience! A lot of people just do web and mail and a little writing. And the iPhone games are very successful, Ed plays with them on the tiny screen and he wants a bigger one. But I get a new laptop first...

*hugs* I hope that things are picking up a little. I keep trying to make myself e-mail you to say I available to talk about the wonderfulness of LotR but I haven't been able to put myself in the right mood. Maybe we can do it next week.

This made me laugh, thanks hon.

Sorry that the day wasn't so wonderful for you. Here's to hoping that you've had a better one since.

*hugs*
