The Ipad

Look out Kindle and Sony Reader, the Ipad is coming and it's going to rock our world. The Wall Street Journal said "The last time people were this excited about a tablet, there were commandments written on it." Ha hahahahaha!

I am a book reader, I don't know if I'll ever switch over to e-books. There is just something about having a real book in my hands, that speaks to me. You don't have to worry about low batteries, if your at a pool or on the beach, that sand and water are going to get on it. And you don't have to worry about getting mugged for it.

I don't think I would ever buy Kindle or Sony Reader. But now that I've read up on the Ipad, I think I might have to reevaluate my opinion. It is amazing! It is something we have all seen in sci-fi movies and shows, and soon it will be a reality.

My only concern about using this to read books on is that I usually read books for HOURS at a time. Like 11 books in two and a half weeks. I'm afraid that the back-lit screen on the Ipad will prevent me from being able to read for such long periods of time due to the strain involved in looking at a computer screen. Maybe this back lit setting can be adjusted? Maybe it won't be that bad at all. All I know is that I'm going to get one. Oh yeah! Thank goodness I head about the Ipad in the nick of time, I was about five seconds away from buying a 64GB Ipod touch. Whew!!
