Ok, I broke down and bought an iPad. The analytical software that my new company uses for business intelligence has an iPad/iPhone app. Since I don’t need another phone and I dislike AT&T, I purchased the iPad.
I wrote a blog post a couple of months ago right after the launch of the iPad with the comment that I wouldn’t have any use for it and that it was too much of a “tweener” device (between a cell phone and a laptop). Well, I will eat my words and take that back. I absolutely love my iPad!
I still wish it had more memory and could run Microsoft Office, but it’s a gem. Watching movies on it is incredible. I watch movies on the plane, in the airport, at the gym while I’m on the elliptical, and at a coffee shop if I’m dining alone. The picture quality is amazing and the Netflix app works like a charm.
Despite my dislike for AT&T, I like their month by month data plan and for $29.99 you get unlimited data. Good stuff.
