At night I tend to work from the couch instead of my desk, which really makes no sense because we don’t watch TV and it’s not any more comfortable than my desk chair.
If I get a new couch
If you’ve longed to mate with a fabulously nerdy fella I’ve got the event for you!
What is Gizmodo Day? It’s a day when all lovers of the website Gizmodo.com come together in their respective cities and talk about Apple products (remember, Gizmodo is the site that got in the middle of the mess with the stolen iPhone 4 prototype) and other computer technology as well as general gadgetry. It’ll be kind of like a TweetUp since most of the word is getting spread through Twitter, but it will be really guy-heavy. My guess is the Gizmodo demographic looks something like this:
Okay, so I’ve been working on a different post all day, but had the TV on in the background. My ears perked up when I heard Oprah mention the word, “iPad”. Um… what?
So now I’m sitting directly in front of the TV on an ottoman blogging live about her review.
Okay, here are her favorite things about the iPad:
- Being able to move your Kindle books to your iPad
- Alice in Wonderland and other interactive books
- Scrabble (I’m betting she means Words With Friends)
BTW, her gadget guru Omar Wasow is adorable. Ima have to
This month’s issue (September 2010… hello? When I received it August wasn’t even here yet) of Macworld features a two-page centerfold of a women laying on a blanket in a park presumably reading on her iPad. She’s not a supermodel, just a regular girl. Like you and me. It was so refreshing to see this image in a magazine I normally just skim because it’s so guy-geared.
The article is about how the iPad has affected the whole life of those who own one. And it has.
Except for blogging (which I occasionally do on the iPad) I rarely open my MacBook these days. And my iPhone has been relegated to just making phone calls and taking pictures (yes, it’s an iPhone 4… remember, I’m married to a Mac addict).
When my hubby first mentioned the iPad more than a year ago I thought, “Oh great. Another freaking expensive toy that he is going to HAVE TO have. Awesome.”
Can you hear the sarcasm?
At that time we had no idea what it would be called or if it really even existed. His geeky gadget blogs were abuzz, but Apple is pretty serious about their secrets (lol). Who knew it would end up with such a feminine-napkiny name?
Of course we pre-ordered ours and
We are an Apple family to the core (cheesy pun intended), so when the new iPhone was announced we both watched the live blogs of the developers conference (WWDC) online, me on my MacBook and he on his MacBook Pro.
The day the window for pre-ordering opened my husband was up at 3:00 a.m. attempting to order. Mine was ordered at 8:30 a.m and his at 3:30 p.m. We don’t mess around.
We both have iPad 3Gs.
My point is this: WE LOVE APPLE PRODUCTS. Can’t live without them. They are a part of our annual family budget. It’s kind of a big deal.
Well, it’s been a month since my phone came in. I’ve loved it (even though I really wanted a white one) and cared for it and kept it away from the 10 month old. But my love has been tainted because it drops just about every call. Not because of the antenna issue that’s getting a lot of press.
My problem is the proximity sensor.
The phone doesn’t realize it’s up against my face, so
