When the iPod first came out I was someone that believed in the concept of what Apple was trying to do. Not because it was an Apple product, I just thought that there is a huge market of people that would like something light and portable that will enable them to take their music along when they are traveling. Sure, they could have used a CD player but I thought it would be a lot easier for people to have music in a smaller form factor and this is what made the Apple iPad so successful. When Steve Jobs presented his keynote address for the Apple iPad, he stated that the iPad would be a revolution in digital media and there are many people that believe he is just trying to sell a product. As a long time techie, I can tell you that the iPad will revolutionize many of the ways that we do things today and if you buy one there are many reasons that your life will never be the same.
Video Games are one aspect about your life that will change when you purchase the Apple iPad. Xbox 360, Wii and PlayStation 3 games usually run about $60 with additional tax. An iPad game will run you about $10 with additional tax. Also, the game will be available for you to play right away and there will be additional upgrades available for you to download at additional costs.
Work is another way that the iPad will change your life, students will have the ability to take notes on the iPad and create iWork presentations right on the iPad device. You can then plug the device into a projection and present it in any setting. You can alter and recreate slides instantly and there is no need for a computer.
Books is another way that the iPad will change the way we live, you will be connected to the iTunes bookstore that will allow you to download books instantly. Students can even download textbooks and eliminate the need to carry around heavy textbooks.
Movies will never be the same, you will have the ability to download movies instantly and match them on a huge 9-inch screen. This allows you to share and catch a movie whenever you are just bored or sitting around with a loved one.
Navigation will also change with the use of Google Earth on iPad; you will have the ability to locate yourself when you are lost. You can find your way home or find local coffee shops and decide to stop and get a bite to eat.
As you can see, iPad Technology is here and will some way or another touch and change our lives in some form.
