Apple So, yeah, uhm, I bought an iPad 2 today. I still don't think anyone really needs a tablet, but that doesn't mean I didn't want one. I wanted to wait until the HP TouchPad was announced, but now that it has, it seems it won't be coming to The Netherlands any time soon. As such, the iPad 2 it was. A few quick fist impressions.

SD Card & slots - complete and total ignorance amongst users! There's no awareness of its capabilities amongst users. I've even see people unaware that they can just buy cards for their cameras.

Once they learn that they can use these slots and cards just like they used floppy discs or that they can just pull the SD card from their camera and stick it in any old machine their eyes are opened and they realise just how useful SD cards really are.

When I showed my family the "lock" switch and told them what that did (it keeps your data locked when you put it in another computer so it can't accidentally be deleted) again... "Gosh! That's useful!"...

I would imagine most people just see it as another slot on the computer they don't use. Without someone to tell them how to use it they won't.

I managed to persuade my lot to just buy new SD Cards (they are comparatively very cheap) instead of copying pictures off and manually deleting them. Just take the card out of the camera, lock the card and put a new one in... Instant backup!
