That also means I'll have less time for original stuff here, hence my preemptive slowing down to one post a week. What I hope to do is put up one new, silly kind of exclusive article here every week and also do a weekly wrap-up to all my other internet activities going on. Also, if you want straight, pure and insane insights into my thoughts in short digestible form you can follow me on twitter for stuff like "had a dream David Duchovny was Iron Man. He wasn't very good."
One more thing. Some dudes I know just launched their awesomely named entertainment/sports blog Bon Iverson today and you should totally check it out.
I also think this would be a good time to just share some of my thoughts on Apple products in general. After the jump...
|These commercials are the worst form of Apple smugness|
With the iPad though, I struggled to see why anyone would need it. Yo dog do you want a big phone that can't call people? How about a really stripped down laptop. Sure tablets are neat luxury items and I wanted one but I couldn't justify it. Saying it was journalistic purposes wasn't going to cut it despite how much my professors praise this device. They are in this no man's land where they are aware of new tech but aren't jaded enough to recognize when it's flawed. Eventually though I just stopped trying and decided to accept the hypocrisy and buy one anyway with the hope of landing a job like this.
earlier how a larger touch display makes an all-touch gaming device more feasibly but, with properly designed apps, all the productivity apps like Pages and iMovie and Keynote are also far more capable than I ever would've considered. In fact, I wrote the majority of this post in my bed in the Notes app.
The way I see it, my big and powerful desktop replacement laptop is too busy being a desktop to be a laptop. So in that sense my iPad's purpose is to be a laptop replacement. Having five times as much battery life certainly helps.
Smart covers are neat too.
