Where’s my iPad?

From time to time, something new comes along that changes the face of technology as we know it. This weekend I had a chance at using an iPad brought along by a friend of mine from the US.

And I have to admit that I am hooked on this beautiful device. Book reading, browsing, movies, applications, this baby handles everything that is thrown at it.

My impressions were very good…so I trawled a bit on the ‘net to see what was the general consensus. And I amazed to see so much ‘hate’ reviews…with reviewers (much of whom admitted to not even holding the device, let alone use it!) giving it a very negative ‘slate’.

So, a quick run-around to the apple site to see the release keynote by Steve Jobs, and I was struck by a picture I saw. I could see myself in that kid’s emotional display.

If that isn’t emotional, I don’t know what is. I’m not saying I’m going to cry over this (although it will be a close call!), but for those of us who have been waiting for something like this…I can’t wait!

Blessed Sunday…rest time!

Following a long busy week, it is a relief to find that it is Sunday today, with just a hint of relaxation glimmering ahead. Yesterday was a really bad day as I managed to find not one, but two flat tyres on the car.

Which is strange, considering I haven’t had a flat for well over three years.

And to make it worse, Rachel had the first of secondary examinations in which I was to give her a ride to the exams hall. Thankfully help arrived in the form of Marlene, Adrian’s mum, who very kindly offered to take her to Blata l-Bajda.

On a more positive note, I met up with the guys in the evening to practise our new song ‘Not in the sky’…which we will perform today. We managed to record it quite well, and the song is available for viewing from my Facebook page.

I think it’s dead good, but who am I to say?
