At the end of last year Mickey told me about some new products Apple was coming out with. I let it go through one ear and out the other like I usually do when it comes to computer stuff. I did tune in more when he started talking about some tablet or whatever that was a bigger version of the iPhone but without the phone. That sounded like something I would be interested in. (The iPhone is too small for me to use well and I rarely use a cell phone so I didn't want an iPhone.) In January he told me about the announcement for the iPad. I watched the announcement, all hour and 45 minutes worth. I was hooked. I wanted an iPad.
Saturday morning we had gone to look at a house and we decided to stop by Best Buy on the way home to see if they had any left in stock. I waited in the car with the kids while Mickey ran in. He was in for a while so I assumed he either couldn't get any help or they had one. I was thrilled when I saw him walking out with a box in hand. I think Mickey's geekiness is rubbing off on me. I have played with the iPad and love it. I love that I can calendar everyone's activities, watch movies, check and send e-mail, look at pictures, surf the net, read books (I downloaded 20 free books!), and play games all with one devise. And it's portable unlike the iMac in the basement I love to use.
If you know me at all you will know that I needed to make a little cover for the new toy. I went to work last night. I still need to add a little something to it but other than that it's finished. It will help me hide and protect my geeky toy.
