Last week at a Boy Scout meeting –
“Is that an iPad 2?”
Seriously? Up until the person at scouts who was so horrified by my old geezer iPad that he had to “ew” and walk away, people have always been eager to discuss their favorite apps or ask for reasons they could use as an excuse to buy an iPad. Unless your primary iPad need is video conferencing, the moldy oldy original is still an awesome tool. If your only reason for the iPad 2 is to keep up with the Joneses, you are going to have one seriously miserable life. Technology evolves at the speed of light, but there are only so many hours in the day to camp out in lines at the Apple store and spend setting up the new hotness that will have a newer version available before you have stopped tenderly cradling yours long enough to crack the screen.
