Ipadding

















Finally I succumbed and bought an iPad.

I can rationaliise it by claiming that it will be a great help in making me more productive at work. I can make notes on the go in schools and classrooms, email them to myself, so that my reports are completed on the same day. This will make a real difference.

But secretly (you won't tell my bride, dear reader will you?) it should allow me to blog on the go.

The thing can be set up either to work off the Telstra 3G network, or to seek a Wi-Fi link, so I can get on-line at home using my Belkin server, or to find one of the many rapidly proliferating links in restaurants and coffee shops.

I've downloaded a neat (and free) application that finds the closest free Wi-Fi outlets as you move around, and highlights them on an on-screen map. 

The only problem I have is that I haven't yet worked out how to upload media other than print.

I'm working on it.

Any suggestions?

Update - I have to buy another piece of kit which allows me to load pics directly from my camera on to the iPad.

How long until we see groups appearing with names like "iPad Anonymous"?

They're more addictive than crack.

That said, I wish I'd had one at work for the last 6 months - would have been extremely useful.
