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.
