Day 17 - A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently.

Yes.  I know how this looks.

 I am an ubergeek.

A very lucky uber geek, but a geek all the same.

I love the child, but he made his huge impact on my life about 8 years ago. (It's what he's holding!)

It's in an Otterbox case, because they are the strongest and the best, and I am still giffering and throwing things on the floor.

Obviously, it's my iPad.  This is the child in a tree.  I love the way the iPad does pictures.

The Otterbox case makes it stand up.  Ideal for the kitchen.

The screen orientates itself however you want it to.  I can blog, use internet, anything!

I can download and read books on it. (I currently have 4 reading apps, and about 24 books on it!)

I can write work on it.  Or not work.

I can read University stuff when I'm out and about.

I can play games.

I can catch up with the news.

It keeps me organised and helps me to remember.

It also plays music, plays films, downloads programmes..........

It does a thousand things more than this, and more than I know of, I'm sure.  Just last night I found I could use Zinio and download magazines, read them, and dismiss them, without an ounce of paper waste for the planet. Books are cheaper than hardcopy books, and yes, there is a difference in how it feels, but it's good for me, and that's ok.

It was expensive, but J bought it for me because he loves me.  He understands my gadget needs, loves my inner geek, and likes to make my life easier.  When I'm laid up immobile in a few weeks, it's going to be my lifeline I think!

He loves me.  It's an amazing thing to say, and I love to be able to say it.  I never thought I would again.
