Forget about the State of the Union address tonight. Today the Big News is Apple's new iPad.
Yes, Apple has finally launched this much anticipated tablet.
And I could care less.
It seems like it's just a bigger version of the iTouch. The size of a hardcover novel, they're saying. An iTouch on steroids. You can buy all those iPhone apps and use them here; use it as an e-reader; go on the Internet; play music; draw with your finger (huh?); play games. Here's a link to a blog that tells all about it.I have a little phone. It makes phone calls. I can't even figure out how to text. I don't want something fancy where I'm plugged in all the time. I don't want to be plugged in all the time. I don't want to be that accessible.
Now, what I would like is just a smaller laptop/netbook thing that isn't as big or heavy as my laptop so I can travel with it easily and write. Everything I'm reading about this iPad seems to indicate that you can't word process on it. Then what's the point? Why not just stick with the iPhone or iTouch and a Kindle or Sony reader?
It just doesn't seem worth the $900 to $1,000 it will cost for one of those things.
This is the first Apple product I am not coveting.
What about you?
