Really, they’re not innovative. My HP Jornada I got for Christmasin 2000 was an innovative product. That thing was awesome. I could type papers on it during study hall, write notes during class that I could actually read later. Of course I couldn’t surf the internet or watch movies on it.
When the iPad first came out, I thought, really, I’m going to spend $500 on that? But then I somehow fell into the role of iPad developer and I grew to like it quite a bit. We just got a second android tablet that I’d like to play with, but I went for the iPad for a very specific reason: The cablevision app only works on iOS. Using the iPad as a portable TV in the house will be pretty great. We only have TVs in the basement. I tried using my phone to watch netflix while I was cooking, it didn’t work out so well. I just ended up with onions on my phone and a dead battery.
I picked white because I’m sick of looking at the black iPods and I won’t get it confused with the ones at work.
Now to pick out the accessories :) <-- best part. Trying hard not to spend all of my bonus. We still need furniture and the bathroom upstairs needs some work. Designer shoes, purse, tablet, I think I'm done for now.
