9,983,983 Words About Tablets

I wanted an iPad in the worst way because I thought it was really cool and would be really useful.

But I was wrong.

It is cool but not useful in the way I want or need it to be.

I can’t type fast enough on it to make it work for me as a tool that increases my productivity.

Not a big fan of the keyboards you can attach to them either.

So it becomes something to use for entertainment purposes.

I am not going to share that many words about tablets here, especially since I just said the iPad is good for entertainment purposes.

If I had significant spare cash I might consider getting one for reading books and watching shows.

It is pretty damn good and useful for those things, but when it comes to a need for writing I don’t like it.

That sucker just doesn’t do it for me.

I have been using one that was given to me by the office for years now so I am pretty familiar with it.

Familiar enough to feel comfortable saying it is not my first choice for a productivity device.

I know some people who say the MS Surface does a good job with that but I have never had the opportunity to find out first hand.

Maybe one day, I am very curious.

For now I think my Mac is doing a pretty good job of taking care of most of my needs, but I admit I am always interested in getting another gadget or two.

Maybe I’ll win the lottery and get a chance to scratch that itch.

    I never got one for that reason. I didn’t think I could use it for typing and to me that’s the key. No pun intended.

    I feel the exact same way. I got an iPad at hubby’s insistence that I would love it. I hate typing on it. I need a real keyboard. I do find it useful for certain things. We are able to sit with each other on our respective iPads doing different things but still together. It is useful for that.

    I feel so old typing that comment. Now, if you will excuse me, I have to go tell some kid to get off my lawn.
