You've just met my friend Molly, Queen of Gadgetry. After reading about what a tech savvy woman she is, I should be embarrassed to tell this.
I have a new iPad.
Except, I haven't even taken it out of the box yet 'cause I am totally intimidated by it.
If you're a Facebook friend, you already know this. But lots of folks have popped in at Facebook to tell me I don't need to be scared of it, and my friend Jill (who conveniently lives right up the road, AND is the proud owner of an iMac along with being a self-confessed computer nerd) has offered to help me with it. And Molly has talked me through some of my tentativeness, so I'm slowly getting there.
As I get busy and start
playing working with this little toy important piece of equipment, I'll keep you posted on how it goes setting it up, how I like it, what I don't like, etc. And while we're doing this, any of you who can hop in with hints and tips will be MUCH appreciated. Any iPad stories you care to share? Good or bad - let's hear 'em! Do you have particular apps you can recommend? Some I should avoid?
I am the total opposite of Molly. I'm really not much of a gadget person. My Palm Pilot has been my closest relationship ever with a gadget. And now, bless its heart, I'm on the verge of leaving it behind (I think) as we transfer all the information I have accumulated on it over the years to the new iPad. I feel a little bad, and even a bit fickle about all this actually. I've called my Palm Pilot my "electronic brain," and I've relied on it to be my "back-up brain" for a long time, and it's been very loyal and steadfast. I have loved it. And I'm VERY nervous about transferring my life off it onto the iPad. Wish me luck! and check back to see how it's coming along!
