Some who have been following a while may have known that I recently won a 16 gig, Wifi only, IPad from the good folks at the United Methodist Publishing House in relation to their new Common English Bible. After a week of waiting with baited breath I finally got the unit yesterday and started on my new IPad life. In fact, I’m writing this post on my IPad, who I’ll name Tommy Frank, in honor of Coke and Asbury (Cokesbury).
I struggled a bit over what type of case to get, but after a bit of research I ended up going with the ZAGGmate, which includes an attached bluetooth keyboard. It’s a little cramped, but I’m not good with the onscreen keyboard and I find that having the screen more upright as I type is handy.
This morning I left the house for a couple of meetings and left the notebook bag behind. This unit was great for taking notes, having a small footprint and no fan noise. While there are moment when I miss true multitasking, once I got my head around this device as a one thing at a time device, then I fell into a good understanding of what this is best suited for.
Thanks again for the CEB folks for the fun toy that is going to be a helpful tool as well.
