Apple Even though I was extremely sceptical of this whole tablet thing, I bought an iPad 2 a few weeks ago. Obviously, this occasion couldn't pass by without a proper review of the thing on OSNews, so here we are. Inside, my view on the iPad 2, and more importantly, how my perception of tablets has been turned around completely.

No matter where I am - on the couch watching TV, in the yard playing with my cats and enjoying some coffee, at friends when everybody is doing stuff, and yes, of course, even while on the toilet.


Haha, I like this little blurb from the article:

For those who say that a netbook/laptop can do anything a tablet can do, I'd like to see you bitches try to use a netbook/laptop on the crapper. Or kicked back on the couch. Or lying in bed. Or on the bus. Or on a long car ride. Sure, you could use a smartphone in those instances, but a tablet gives you more screen real-estate to work with, making it easier to navigate.

Thing about a laptop is that you can't hold it in one hand, while surfing the web with one finger on the other hand. THAT is why tablets are useful. Not a necessity to be sure, but nice to have around. I've heard people dismiss tablets as 'toys', while most of these same people own multiple game consoles and a giant-ass TV. Pot, meet kettle ;)
