    Default So I took the plunge...

    And I now own an iPad. It was something I never thought I'd do, but after playing with a friend's earlier in the week, I decided to buy one. So far, I pretty much love it, but I haven't done all that much with it. So, who else has one and what do you love about it?

    EVERYTHING!

    I lovelovelove mine. I have the Nook, Kindle, and iBooks apps on it. I have a lot of blogs that I read through my Google Reader and so, I have a reader there that I love -- Feedler, that I use to read blogs most of the the time.

    Several magazines I read on the iPad now -- O, and Better Homes and Gardens are two with their own apps.

    I have several cookbooks on it, and a game or two.

    I like Evernote for iPad a lot too -- things that I have clipped to my Evernote account are easily accessible there.

    I've also enjoyed a number of the available photoediting apps.

    Basically, I love the thing!

    While I love my phone (and huge screen, for a phone), I find myself wanting something bigger for reading on while out alone at restaurants. MrB and I have been looking at the Transformer tablet (sony I think?). My only concern, aside from the initial cost(! Of any tablet) would be not wanting to pay for another data package. I already have my smartphone to pay for monthly! So i'd probably get just wifi access only and use it wherever there's free wifi. But I should look first at my usual haunts and see if they offer it :-)

    Then again, if I can only spend that amount of money on one thing, id choose to spend it on riding lessons and brown field boots, heh heh.

    Jailbreak it and take it as far as it was meant. I love my iPad. Except for extensive typing (like tonight on OT night on COTH ), I almost never use my computer anymore.
