Tuesdays with Eli - EM Photography Welcomes the iPad

This weekend Leslie came to visit me all the way from Nashville. It was great! We had dinner with friends, spent Easter with my family, and enjoyed the beautiful Arkansas springtime weather. Saturday was the big release of the Apple iPad. I will admit that I am a proud Apple fan. Some call me, fanboy, some call me a fanatic. Either way, I have used Apple products since I was 16. My first computer was a 1GHz Apple eMac G4 with 768GB RAM. I bought it with the money I made working at my first official job, a local pizza place, "Pizza Perfect". I've been a loyal fan of Apple for years because I really think the company make exceptional products. They are more that just beautiful design, they last. That 7 year old eMac is still used on a daily basis. : ) Anyway, I'll get off my soapbox, and cut to the chase. Saturday Leslie and I went into Best Buy to check out the new iPads. I had ideas before looking at them of what I could use them for in the business, but I didn't intend on buying one yet. I just wanted to look. When we got there, I was sold. These things are really nice. When I picked it up all of a sudden I had tons of ideas on how I could use this for my business. I'm not going to tell everyone reading this to go out and buy an iPad, they are definitely not for everyone. If you already have an iPhone and laptop, then it's probably not necessary, but if you don't yet have a laptop, this could just omit that need. I have owned a lot of technology in young life, but I have never owned a single iPod. I skipped right over them, strait to the iPhone.  So after giving my tax guy a quick call, I bought the 16GB Wifi only iPad. If you want to check one out (and your a recently engaged), give me a call, I'll bring it right over. Haha, just kidding I'll let my single friends play with it too. Seriously though, if we do have meeting scheduled, you can bet, I'll be bringing my new iPad with me.

This thing towers over the iPhone. iPad vs. iPhone It really is just a super-sized version of the iPhone. Except, when you hold the iPad,  it doesn't feel like it's too big, it just makes your iPhone feel too small. Haha iPhone to iPad Comparison
