Ihad a little iPad…

This post is here to tell you little more than:

  • I’m in Seattle
  • I have an iPad
  • It’s lovely
  • I’m using it to write this post

Things that I’ve found particularly pleasing in the very brief time I’ve had it include the fact that the keyboard, in landscape mode, is very much better than I would have imagined: I’ve brought a Bluetooth keyboard over with me but I think I may not use it much. Rose’s books are available on the iBooks store. And the Kindle app is already iPad enabled.

Lots of fun but I’m jet lagged and need to go to bed. I’ll try not to take it with me…

I’ve read that the ipad is far better for consuming content than creating content. Thoughts?

Well, that depends on what you’re comparing it to, I suppose. It’s far, far better for creating content than an iPhone or iPad, but not as good as a laptop.

I can write emails and blog posts on it happily, which I wouldn’t do on my iPhone, but I wouldn’t write a book or a paper on it unless I had to.

Fascinating news – but have just invested in a new laptop, so not tempted (well, not so far …). Hope the trip goes well.

[…] with technology especially so. I remember I was in Seattle on the day the iPad was released, and so was able to get one that day, about 6 weeks before most of my European contemporaries. (I’m still a bit smug about that!) […]

Got Something To Say:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
