New Toy

Anyone who follows me on Facebook knows I recently acquired a new toy. The Fed-Ex guy delivered it on Monday afternoon, and I couldn't wait to open the box. Inside the box was another box with a picture of an iPad on top.

I looked at it for a while.

When I opened it, this is what I found.

I turned it over. Yep, it's an iPad.

First I had to sync it. That took waaaaay over an hour because I put all my pictures on it and a bunch of apps that looked good. Plus, all the apps from my iPod Touch loaded, too.

After my husband and I took turns playing with it (I share my toys), I figured I should dress it up. Maybe give it a country look. I changed the background to a picture of Smith Farm and added a hat.


Does that say "downhome iPad," or what? OK, maybe a more sophisticated look. Something glitzy:

Nah, that doesn't do it at all. Maybe a western look?

No, that isn't the look I'm going for either. I am sooooo going to have to get some official iPad outfits. 

Meanwhile, I'm having fun playing with my new toy. I really like this little gizmo.

AWESOME!!!! I like the hat look myself.

We have toyed with the idea of getting an iPad but not sure we can justify getting one unless we find a reaaaally good reason to put it to use.

Di, I love the iPad. Great to lug around for wi-fi when I don't want to carry the laptop. Already downloaded some free books and a bunch of free apps.

I ended up getting a very good deal on a leather cover, so the iPad has kind of an executive look.
