iPadding it Up

I was away from home this week on a beach trip with my wife and kids. The ONLY bad thing (and it was a very small one) was that I was away from the office when my new iPad arrived. I love new gadgets, but I wouldn't really call myself an early adopter. The iPod was out for years before I bought one. I resisted blogging until it was thoroughly mainstream.

Buying an iPad just a few months after introduction has me about as trendy as it gets, and as I write this first post on my new device I have to say that in just a few short hours of playing with it I am very pleased. I would like for it to be useful, as well as fun, so I plan to test it out in that way pretty thoroughly over the next month or so.

There are some things it can't do, like type this post in the "compose" view (I'm using the "edit html" side), and I am such an avid user of tabbed web browsing that I feel some lack there, but all in all I am pleased with my choice.

I'm writing this from my iPad, from the beach. Ive loved mine. Oh, and you have tabs; just look carefully at the top of Safari. I use Reeder most of the time anyway.

Ooh, I've got some iPad envy going on right now. Pretty freakin sweet!Make sure you bring the iPad with you on your way through KC. Can't wait to see you soon.

Will do Matt. But I think my BMW envy is worse than your iPad envy.
