ihas a new toy!


Overall, here's my run down:

*Lots of free apps/games... basically lots of free crap.
*web browsing is as fast as on my laptop (and there are apps from G4 and IGN that stream web headlines in a nice format... Dtoid needs an app!).
*everything is FAST. Loading an app happens in the blink of an eye, same for closing it.
*the keyboard is wonderful to use and I can hook my thumbs on the base to anchor them and type with 4 fingers.

* many video sites (like CTV.ca and Destructoid) still use flash for video and the IPad has no flash (though many sites are also updating their video sections to HTML 5 which is accessible to mobile devices).
* the wireless access seems more limited in range than my laptop.
* it does not recharge via USB on most PC's (though apparently it does work on MAC computers). It's a bit of a pain to keep transferring the cord from the wall plug for charging to the computer for updating. Hopefully they'll fix this issue.
* it's a time-sink.

Good Lord... between my laptop computer, my PS3 and now my IPad, I may seriously have to consider some of those "Move" games so I get off my butt once in awhile. Then again I'm sure there must be an app or podcast on getting more exercise, let me go look...

Everybody dance now!

About Elsaone of us since 2:27 PM on 01.25.2009

I'm 55 years old. I'm female, a cancer survivor, happily married, and retired from the work force... and I spend way too much time gaming. I enjoy long walks on the beach, with a gun, sometimes with my husband - shooting n00bs.
I not only like to shoot people, I also enjoy cooking and crafting. Mostly I make my own armor in games like Skyrim and cook my own potions after a busy day of hacking and slashing my way through various critters, guards and bandits in most any WRPG game.

If you're into a threesome or foursome with a mature couple, then come join us - only be sure to bring a med kit. We're old, sometimes we fall down and can't get back up without some help!
