iPad, Take 2

I’ll admit to being one of the disappointed watchers as Apple debuted their new iPad. I kept saying: it’s just a big iPod touch. But then, over the past 24 hours I can’t stop thinking about it and how it can revolutionize education AND leisure time. I love my iPod Touch for reading. This is going to be even better. And it does everything I need it to do, really. I mean, I didn’t need a new computer. I have one. ANd my phone works fine as is…ESPECIALLY if I have an iPad with the data plan. I can watch movies whenever…I wonder if I can stream my Netflix to it? WIll I be able to text? If not, my kids tell me there’s an App for that. 🙂
I get the columns in the presentation. It’s not a phone. It’s not a computer. It’s an iPad. Something new all together. That’s cool.
Now, will I get it right away? hmmmmmmm. I tend to wait until a second generation so the mistakes are worked out. Decisions, decisions. Want, need.
I better remember Dave Ramsey. Looks like I better start putting my money back now.

Winter Weather Watch…AGAIN

As I write this TWC is predicting a significant weather event Thursday. My new mantra:
snow, snow, go away, don’t come back any day.

I live in Wichita Falls, Texas. I can’t drive in snow and ice. I don’t have clothes for snow and ice. 30 degrees is too cold. I think they should cancel school for flurries. I don’t like snowmen or snow angels or ice skating or snow ice cream. I do like to wear hats, but I can do that without snow. I don’t even think I like the song about all the snowflakes turning into candy bars and milkshakes. And I used to love that song. But now it just gives me the shiverees and not the good kind.

Snow: Booo. Go away. Thanks.
