My iPad Journey: Crush? Affair? Friendship?
Developing a new relationship—business or social, dallying in a crush (illicit or not) or indulging into an affair---all take time and effort. I’ve tried to make the iPad my friend, it has become a crush and borders on an affair—but I’m married to books. Does that make me “disloyal” when I enjoy a good read on the iPad? But I have learned that I don’t want to buy the digital books because the public library is also my friend. I check out both hard copies for the tactile reading adventure and audio books for to accompany my commutes—all free. My home library, filled with old and new books, is my refuge—this habit is a life long affair of the heart. I lent my iPad to a colleague, now my heart has grown fonder; I now miss the iPad. Emotions and technology? Who knew? In the coming weeks, I will share my experiences with the iPad apps and adapting to the ebook landscape. What are your thoughts?
