A Little Gadget... My New iPad

Check it out ladies!  My husband stood in line Saturday morning to get his hands on one of these little bad boys.  I must admit that it is pretty... AMAZING!  Granted, I haven't had much time to play with it because it is actually my husband's toy and he's in love with it.  The kids and I have been joking that he should marry it.  Tonight he made it play, "If You Like it then You Shoulda Put a Ring on it."

Below is some of what I did tonight.  I also read five chapters of "Pride and Prejudice" (a free download BTW).  All this is cool but, it is just the tip of the iceberg!

Here is some of the cool stuff it can do.  Don't be jealous... much.
So, I can totally visit my favorite sites on the web.  You can do that little thing where you put two fingers on the screen and zoom in... that's pretty fun.

You can read books.  Turn the page with just a touch.
Here's the best part of reading on the iPad... If there is a word that you don't know the meaning of, which is bound to happen at some point, you just touch the word and select 'dictionary'.  Then the dictionary definition appears on the screen.  I know... right.
Wanna take notes?  There is a totally awesome keyboard that appears.  It takes a little getting used to because you can't rest your hands on the keys, rather, they must hover above the keyboard and only touch the letter you wish to type.  I like it though and I think I can even type faster this way.
Here's me checking out the coast of Hawaii on the Maps application.
There is so much more it can do.  In fact, I Skyped with my brother on my iBook and then my husband Skyped with him on the iPad just after and he commented that the connection was more clear on the iPad. 

PS the screen would be much clearer but my husband hasn't removed it from it's protective coating.

If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up (a la Ferris Bueller).
