I was dealing with a rather fussy baby yesterday while the noon news was running, paying no attention to the television, when Cliff said, "You have to see this!"
He backed up the news, as you can do with Direct TV, and replayed the segment for me. This thing I "had" to see was information about the new Apple Ipad.
Now, I'm perfectly happy with my Ipad Mini. It does everything I want it to do. If we go out to eat breakfast and I forget my morning pills, I just talk to the Ipad and tell it to remind me to take my pills at 11 A.M. (or whenever I think we'll be back home). At exactly eleven o'clock, the reminder will pop up on the ipad AND my computer. For someone whose memory isn't as sharp as it used to be, this is an invaluable feature.
I keep my grocery list on the Ipad, but if I think of an item to add when I am sitting at the computer, the list is right here in the "Icloud". If I add to my list while at the computer, it shows up on the Ipad, and vice versa.
My first Ipad didn't have a camera, but the mini does. I don't know what the big deal is about the retina display, but I don't covet it. Every new model of the Ipad that comes out is "thinner" and "lighter", but I am satisfied with the weight of mine.
So honestly, I had no desire to buy any new version of the Ipad... until Cliff called my attention to the news bit. Good grief, the prices they're asking! This morning we were eating breakfast with the news on in the other room and I said, "Are they talking about the Ipad again?"
"Yes," my husband answered. "They're saying it's lighter and faster."
Get thee behind me, satan.
