Hello From the Comfy Chair

Trying out a post on the iPad from the comfy chair in the den. While theoretically this is "my" chair, in practice Dasher uses it more than I do, as I'm usually at my computer. Gonna try a little iBook/Kindle reading while I'm here, as well. This may open up a whole new world of sitting comfortably around the house for me!

He seems to think it is a fine thing to bump his forehead against, but so far has little other use for it.

Too ding-dang hot to do any gratuitous "going outside" here to give it a proper check. But riding along in the car to/from the chiro appointment yesterday it did fine...

You do know you don't have to have an iPad to do that. Right now I'm sitting in my recliner, feet up, full keyboard and mouse in front of me with the monitor just off to the side on the stand. It's all a matter of just setting a computer near the chair my friend. A few cable extenders and there you go. You don't need Apple's newest "You must buy" gadget to compute in comfort.

For me my Asus Eee PC (Netbook if you prefer) does everything I've seen people shouting from the house tops that the iPad can do. It also has a real keyboard and a camera. Oh and can the iPad run AutoCAD? The Eee does as well as a couple other beefy games and programs. So when I look at the iPad all I can do is shrug. Personally I think the touch screen keyboard would drive me nuts.

I think I'll stop now before people start giving me rotten apples by air.

I strongly recommend that anybody not interested in the iPad should definitely avoid getting one. :)

"It's nice in here - consoles, comfy chairs, a forest. How's things with you?"

"I made them say comfy chairs."
