I was one of those non-believers who mocked the ipad from day 1. An oversized ipod and for $500 no less. It just seemed retarded to me. Why not just by a netbook or a full out notebook for less? I'm into comics, I like reading, I'm guilty of passing endless hours casually surfing the web and abuse netflix like nobody else out there. Yet I could not see any value in an ipad... overcoming my objections wasn't easy, but needless to say I am now an ipad owner. Has anyone ever gotten that awkward feeling when you've been put in your place by undeniable proof? Or, you're just embarrassed because perhaps you spoke to soon, or didn't have all the facts to make an informed opinion? Well yeah.. thats how I feel. The iPad is unreal. This 10 inch slab of awesomeness has already over night revolutionized how I read books, comics, and surf the net among many other things. Tap and interact. God, this is just awesome. There are times when you need a "real" computer / physical keyboard and then there's every other time... which is at about 95% for me. My iPad has not ceased to put a grin across my face. To think I used to depend on a laptop for such menial tasks. Anyone else feel the same way? Sorry I guess I am just too excited about my new toy.
