I love my iPad! Luuvvv It! But if you are thinking about getting one, make sure it will be for you alone. When I bought my first one (a Christmas present for myself), I shared it with the family. Games for the grandkids, newspaper for my hubby, etc. Then it got to the point where every time I wanted to use the iPad, someone else was using it. So I bought a second one for me alone. The grandkids tried hard to get me to let them put a bunch of games on it, but I held fast. In each case I have gotten the iPad with the 3g or 4g option. That way, when we go on vacation, we can still access the internet, etc. while driving. But now I have gotten to the point where I take the iPad with me just about everywhere. I like that I can check out several different email accounts on it. The apps are wonderful. So many to choose from! I love the weather app I have. In an instant, I know if I am going to get rained on in the next few minutes. For reading, you can’t beat it. I even use it in church instead of the regular prayer book. Love the Hanging With Friends and Matching With Friends games. Have I let it take over my life? Not yet, but I can see where that could happen!
