Today Apple and it’s team of executives headed by Tim Cook announced the new iPad. No number, no “HD” for this one, just “the new iPad”. This will surely cause some confusion, so let’s just all agree to call it the third generation iPad shall we?
As time has gone on, I have found myself using my iMac and MacBook less and less and instead relying on the iPad more and more. As a matter of fact, this post is being written from the WordPress app for iPad. Apart from needing to find a comparable replacement for Quicken for the iPad, I have almost no real use for my laptop anymore. My desktop is also becoming more a storage and media server as I rarely touch it as well. It is a late 2007 iMac.
So, Justin and I talked about it and I went ahead and bought the new iPad. Once it comes in, Justin will get the iPad2 so he can have all the features of a tablet as well. I also bought the camera connection kit so I can hook up my camera and transfer the pics to the iPad. This will allow me to completely negate the need for a laptop or netbook at all when traveling. All I need now is an app for tethering to my DSLR and I’ll really be a happy camper! Looking forward to March 16th when it will supposedly arrive.
