    So I spent Easter with relatives at my Uncle's house and as soon as I walked through their door, they give me a quick hug and then dash to the iPad that i was holding in my hand lol. The iPad was like the certain of attention, it was great. I got to show it off and demo a bunch of apps, I kind of felt like I was Steve Jobs when I was going through all the features lol. Did anyone else spend Easter with family and friends and notice that their iPad was all the rage lol?

    I went to my mom's yesterday for Easter. I brought a couple of things with me along with my iPad. I pulled up, got out of the car with a couple of things and left the iPad in the car. I got halfway to the front door and my mom came out and saw I didn't have it in my hands. I jokingly said "I forgot it". She said "Did you really?" in a disappointed tone. I then told her it was still in the car and she looked relieved. I brought it in and my mom, brother and uncle all went for it. :D All were impressed...and my mom wants one now.

    I also took mine to the relatives on Sunday. Now my mom, sister, and two nieces will be purchasing one.

    I was with a bunch of people... Some were very excited, some disinterested (there were a lot of screaming kids around, so it was a bit chaotic), and one almost afraid to touch it... I was thinking about that last one. In the rest of our lives, we avoid touching glass panes (windows, etc.) so it feels kind of odd to have this glass window that you're supposed to touch.

    I went to dinner with my family last night, and I was letting my nephew play with my iPad (he liked Real Racing HD a lot), and complete strangers were even asking me if I enjoyed my new iPad lol.
