Holy unexpected iPad Batman! I am typing this from an iPad that someone gifted me! Wheee!
Quick try out all the drawing apps and tell me which one is best!

...but what you REALLY wanted was a fur coat, right?

In other news, why won't someone unexpectedly gift ME an iPad?

I was at an Apple store earlier today (protip: you know that Airport that you plugged straight into the wall instead of into the power strip? Yeah, don't do that. Especially when you KNOW you're going to have hellacious spring lightning storms.) and there must have been FIVE DOZEN people in there. At 3 in the afternoon. Buying armloads of gleaming gorgeous tech. I understand why their market cap has surpassed Microsoft.

I deliberately avoided playing with an iPad. Right now I have no use for one and don't particularly want one, but I'm sure that as soon as I touch the damn thing....

So. Jealous.

It's a good thing you live far, far away dear Whelk, else I would go stick my tongue out at you in person. So by proxy I say, with conviction:

Well at least BitterOldPunk won't laugh at my habit of shutting everything down and pulling all the plugs out during electrical storms....

Gifted? You don't mean that they gave it to you?

Stick your tounge IN ME in person and you have chance at getting it.

The Mac Thing is so weird to get used to - so I have to buy things, wait how do I erase my history this is a shared thing oh wait god this is weird.

I have never had a mac device before, this is an alien planet.

The iPad is even more alien, as it's not really a computer, but you can (apparently) create new things on them (like drawings). The whole storage thing makes me feel weird. But they seem like seriously swanky tech.

For what most people use a computer for, the iPad, is in fact, a computer.

My ancestral home once had on the order of 10 various pieces of electronics fried in a single storm after a direct hit to the lawn sprinkler box. My mom unplugged pretty much everything in a storm after that. And being as it was Tampa, that probably happened at least once a week.

Also woo iPad!

It's interesting, it may replace the tiny red travel dell I had (The Dell Close) cause when I'm travelling I just need an open port to the internet that Does Things.

Note, all the Masters Of The Universe down in midtown manhattan are carrying them around they're starfleet issue
