There's a lot of joking about the name. It does seem that the product will be more useful to women than to men, since most of us already lug around some kind of bag that the ipad would easily slip right into. Guys, on the other hand, are more used to sticking stuff in their pockets, no?
People are compaining that there's no camera included. But I already have a perfectly good camera! And I ought to be able to load photos onto this thing pretty easily, right?
I have been waiting a while to figure out how to completely re-vamp my electronic life. I have a land-line phone that I rarely use; but I need it for the DSL internet connection. On top of that, I pay a monthly charge to my ISP. All this being said, my laptop is slow and frustrating to use - defintely time to upgrade to something else. (Ongoing excuse for sparse blog posts - they take TIME!) My cell phone is really just for emergencies (though free on weekends); for that I pay a minimum fee. No cable here, because there's no TV. My favorite gizmo to date is the little portable DVD player that lives under my pillow. I can envision a future where the ipad is my ONLY computer, the land-line phone is a thing of the past, and maybe I upgrade the cell in some way? Remains to be seen how it might all work, but I'm optimistic.
I think it's all right down my minimalist alley.
