We were very good this year and Santa brought us a new toy. So much has been written about the iPad there is little original to say. it's a beautiful device, and introduces the next phase in our relationship with information. We don't type extensive documents at home - our home computing needs focus on access to the internet, scheduling, music, photos etc. All far better managed through a touch interface tablet. And some of the Apps are just wonderful - Starwalk, for one, is breathtaking. The lack of a USB port, precluding a direct connection with our camera, is a bit of a flaw. Nonetheless this is clearly a breakthrough machine, and I look forward to the next iterations.
