Toying with the Dark Side

April 10th, 2010 (01:21 pm)

A wanted to go to the mall; while here, I decided to stop in and
look at the iPad. It's so shiny! Typing this is being decidedly slow, though. I have the advantage that my hands are big enough that I can hold it with two hands and reach all the keys, even in landscape mode; but it was frustrating to find out that the < and > keys were hidden in a third level keyboard, so I have to press three times to type one, and then again to go back to letters.

Something very 2010 about walking into an Apple Store, pulling up YouTube, and playing a video of my own home. :-)

Right now A is playing the iPad version of Diner Dash.

(Edit: toying with the Dark Side, not toting. I fixed it right after I posted, but LJ forgot.)

I love the iPad. I haven't tried typing in landscape mode, but I'm hoping I can touchtype.

OH! I thought maybe you meant that you toted it out in a tote-bag.

I've heard a bunch of metaphors applied, but the one I like best is Disneyland.

It's a nice place to visit, for a totalitarian dictatorship; hardly anyone would actually want to live there.
