Resistance is futile!


The Borg have said it so many times. In my case, resisting the urge to buy an iPad was futile.

Even before it was available in Canada, I was already convincing myself I didn’t need one. I would chant to myself “I don’t need another toy.” Obviously, that didn’t work. The moment I held one in my hands at the Apple store I was mesmerized. Next thing you know I was handing over my credit card to purchase my very own iPad 3G 64gb. I just didn’t have the strength to resist any longer.


Fast forward two weeks later and I still can’t put it down. Good thing this gadget has a long battery life! I don’t know what it is with this thing that convinced me to get it. I use it to do almost everything – read the news, watch YouTube videos, check Facebook and also update my blog. Basically, the same things I do on my computer, my laptop, and even on my iPhone.


To this day, I still don’t know what it is. Perhaps it’s the iBooks app. I have already downloaded a number of free e-books from Project Gutenberg as well some sample books from the iBooks store.


Perhaps it could be the amazing movies that I can watch whenever and wherever I please.


Or perhaps it’s the iPad’s ability to double as a digital photo frame which brilliantly displays photos.


Or maybe, just maybe, it’s all the games that I am currently addicted to like Angry Birds, Sparkle, and my favourite, Plants vs Zombies.


Well, whatever it is, I’ll probably never know. All I know is, the Apple collective has started to taunt me again when good ol’ Steve announced the release of the new iPhone 4 a couple of weeks ago.

I had no idea the Borg has a King. Damn you, Steve!

    Looks like you’re making the most use out of it so that’s good. Enjoy your iPad! I fear for how much it would retail in Norway. Prices would be most probably jacked up since this is Norway.

      I’m glad that our dollar is almost on par with the US currency. Your import fees in Norway must be pretty high. I think you should get yours now. I’m actually loving the croc covers from Tod’s. I could just imagine how much one costs.
