my new toy

A couple of days ago I posted that I was waiting for one of the most frivolous purchases I have ever made. Well...I have it now. It's a shiny new iPad. Well, almost new. I got a refurbished 1st generation iPad for $200 less than a new new one would have cost! So far, I love it.

This post is entirely composed and edited on it. I doubt that I will use it for blogging very often, given that the writing part takes longer using the on screen keyboard. Sure I could get a keyboard to attach, but that makes it have too much overlap with my laptop. However, the ability to blog from it will be useful on our trip to Europe.

So far my favorite thing is an app called Flipboard

It's like google reader meets newspaper meets magazine. I love it!
