It’s called the iPad.


Yesterday Apple revealed the latest device to get us all excited.

It’s really a sleek beauty and as I was looking at it I wondered “What would I use this device for?” I see all the things Apple has suggested; email, browsing the internet, reading eBooks, watching movies, photos, iTunes, calendar, contacts, you name it.


My first thought was as a drawing pad. When I was younger, much younger, I’d take my drawing pad around with me and cuddle up to a corner on the couch and draw. I’d sit in a chair and draw. I’d sprawl across the floor and draw. My drawing pad went everywhere with me. That behavior lasted until college and me eventually getting too busy to take my drawing pad everywhere with me.


There are apps that let you create drawings on the iPod and iPhone, but really now. The thought of using the iPad for something like that is exciting.


I’ve already thought about my uses for the iPad.

It is very appealing to me and creativity.

Do you like the iPad?

What would you use it for?

  • I’m interested for sure.

    I have a few uses under consideration the top two of which are:

    Mobile portfolio.
    Viewing station at sport events I shoot.

    Wow I did not know that the older you get you lose the ability to draw. Doesn’t matter I can’t draw anyways.

    While I like new gadgets, find the iPad slick. I’d rather use a laptop because I like having all the horsepower and functions rather tan a limited set. I would be just as careful hauling around an iPad as I would a MacBook and weight really is not a problem for me.

    I can, however, see this as one slick presentation tool for sales people that do more “one on one’s” with customers. Insurance people, direct sales, Wedding Planners, and those types.

    Funny Cal. 🙂
    Things you have to do (or should do) often get in front of things you want to do. This little “entertainment system” as I’ve branded it, Is a great ‘bulk’ destroyer. Not much to pack away, flip the portfolio cover over and go.

    For those of us who have an rv, this could be perfect. If it has gps capabilities, the larger screen would be welcome in our truck as opposed to the little handheld we have now. I would like to take it with me on walks as I try to identify plants, birds, and animals. I would use it to show all my cool photos to my friends without having to drag my laptop around with me. I do wish it were linked with Verizon, though. We have a mifi which is a portable hotspot and I really don’t want to have to add another service fee. But, this device just might make me go for it. I’ll have to give it a try when it comes out.
