Like any full-grown nerd I waited two-and-a-half hours for the iPad 2, a device that resembles my phone on steroids! I have a Bible app that allows me to take my iPad to church and simply scroll and point at the verse and suddenly I'm reading an electronic Bible complete with lessons, notes, highlighting pen and bookmark for future reference. The device even comes with a complimentary copy of Winnie the Pooh with pages that turn with the sound and look of a regular printed page of paper.
Not only can I surf the web, I can take photos and video just like the phone. Gee, I can be like Oprah! The KENetwork! Isn't it obvious that I've been impacted by all the devices pointed at my head?
Now I have to write a hand-written note, but I forgot how to use a pen.
