• My iPad Resolution

    So, we’re a couple of weeks away from the launch of the iPad in Apple Stores. And watching the Oscars, we got a lovely up close preview of what Apple’s new toy will look like.

    Now, I watch that commercial and wonder if I actually have to have yet another gadget. Seriously, how much do I need to watch videos, look at pictures, listen to music or read a book. Because when I start to add it all up, I’ve got computers, stereos, smart phones, Blue-Ray, DVD, and VHS video players, an iPod, a Zune, a Nook eReader, an Xbox, a Wii… (breath)… and a closet full of tech junk that is too old to love anymore.

    So, I’ve resolve to resist the iPad. I won’t do it. I won’t. Really. Don’t believe me? Check back in three weeks. :)
