An Apple a day (access required)

I recently replaced my archaic BlackBerry Curve with a brand-new, white iPhone4. At the time, I thought I was on the cutting edge of technology. I need to remember that can never be the case in this day and age. The New York Times reported on Apple's release Tuesday of the iPhone 4S, which looks identical to the iPhone 4 but boasts a “virtual assistant" named Siri (not to be confused with my fellow blogger) that recognizes voice commands by users to schedule appointments, dictate text messages and conduct Web searches. The new version is also equipped with a more advanced camera and a more powerful chip, the A5 microprocessor, that acts as the brains inside the iPad. Mmmmm... the iPad. Yet another gadget I lust for but I have no idea why. Likely it's because the Dell laptop I have had since law school is reaching its 5th year and has recently been giving me the BSOD way too often. In my opinion, the "blue screen of death" is basically a PC's way of giving you the finger or informing you that it's tired and doesn't feel like functioning properly anymore. As I contemplate an upgrade, I am torn between a full-blown laptop versus simplifying my life with an iPad that can slip into the majority of my purses.

  1. Basically the iPad is heroin with an LCD screen. Get one. You will never want another PC.

  2. I use a smart phone-android and an Ipad2. I still have a laptop as well. I find the IPad versatile I. Moving from office to court. It is very light and gives me access the web and forms whenever needed, wherever I am. It does not replace the laptop but does compliment it.
    Apps are msba, fast case, media, calculator app, dropbox, and weather etc. Anything, that helps to facilitate on going business or quick research.
