I have been very busy this week. Real life has intruded in some pleasant ways, and some not so pleasant ways, so I haven’t had as much time to spend with updating blogs and interacting online. I’m hoping things will quiet down again in the next couple of days and I can get back to life in my imaginary worlds.
One of the good things that has happened this week was a trip to one of the libraries not far from where I live to see a demonstration of the new Apple iPad. This is a gadget that I haven’t had a whole bunch of interest in and was more interesting to my partner than it was to me. I was just along for the ride and to hear the library’s plans for expanding into lending ebooks.
Well, just as happened with the iPod nano, which I bought for myself last Christmas. Upon touching the iPad at the end of the session yesterday, I was immediately bewitched.
Let me warn you, my faithful reader! If you do not want an Apple iPad, do not, under any circumstances, allow your hands to come into contact with one for any reason! I believe that Apple has somehow impregnated these devices with some kind of magical power which, upon contact with human skin, renders the one touching them powerless to resist the urge to possess them!
iFever, I call it. I was instantly infected with iFever when I picked up the Nano before Christmas, and though once bitten, was not twice shy about handling the iPad.
iFever has hit me again and now I covet having an iPad of my own. *groans*
They release in Australia tomorrow and I will not rush out and get one right away. iRefuse
