The iPad and the future of education

image

Just finished this article, Colleges Dream of Paperless, iPad-centric Education. After using the iPad for a few days myself, I totally believe this could happen. The reading experience on the iPad is fantastic. You can highlight, copy and paste text, edit, save, store, and share just about anything you read or create. And no books to lug around. 



Microsoft prototype of 2-panel tablet rivals iPad

image

I am REALLY liking my Apple iPad. In fact owning an iPad made my mouth water for the Microsoft Courier. You can see some great demos of a prototype or the 2-panel Microsoft Courier at Engadget. The Courrier is more business oriented rather than for the consumer.



Great video review of the iPad from Wired

image

Wired has posted a very helpful hands-on video review of the iPad. It gives you a good sense for what it's like to use one. Wired has also posted an article on 10 of the most intriguing games and apps for the iPad. And a detailed review from Steven Levy.



Waiting for the iPad 3G

So here it is, April 5th, and I have no iPad. That's because I want one with 3G. So my 32GB iPad 3G is on order, but I won't have it for a few more weeks. That really bites.

 



Pages shines on iPad

Well after having my iPad for a solid day now, and the hype is wearing off, let me tell you, it is definitely not just a big iPod Touch or iPhone.

Where to start?



Vook at Sherlock Holmes - this is where the iPad shines!

image

I just downloaded my first Vook - Sherlock Holmes. A Vook is an electronic, interactive book. As you begin each chapter, you can play the video to learn something more about the characters, setting, and places. Then, as you read the chapter, you can view illustrations and click on web links to access the Internet for word definitions. This all works seamlessly and provides a unique reading experience, one which I believe is the future of all E-books and magazines.



Color&Draw is NOT for Adults ONLY!

The Color&Draw website says it's an app for kids, but I'm here to tell you that it's for adults, too!



Joint custody of the iPad DID NOT WORK!

image

 My husband and I were going to have joint custody of the iPad we bought yesterday, but that lasted 13 hours.

After playing with it all day and having "discussions" over who was going to get custody when, we decided to save our marriage and buy a 2nd one!

As I said in an earlier post, I ran out of memory rather quickly with the 16 GB, so I upgraded to the 32 GB. MUCH BETTER! After uploading all my apps, photos, songs, and videos, I still have 19.69 GB left.



iPad - First Impressions

image

 I can only say, WOW! Although I haven't had a chance to do everything yet, my first impressions with the iPad are AWESOME! And it can only get better.

The user interface is beautiful; the graphics are crisp and COLORFUL! I love the color. My husband has a Kindle and the iBooks reader on this iPad is going to blow Kindle out of the water! Color illustrations, adjustable font sizes and the slickest page turner I've ever seen.
