Registered here a few weeks ago because I was intending to buy myself an iPad for my birthday.
As the day approached, I gave up on the idea because even the basic 16 wifi model was a bit too expensive and so I settled for a second hand Galaxy Tab. (which is very good BTW)
Then today I got a text message from my son Mark, who is out in Australia nearing the end of his years work visa. He is 23 but has no interest in Tech or computing and only uses email or phone. Here is the text conversation
MARK: you got yourself one of those tablet things?
ME: yeah. How did you know?
MARK: your email said sent from Samsung tablet at the bottom.
ME; oh right. Yeah its great
MARK: kind of spoils the birthday present I got you. I didn’t post it cos I dont trust the post.
ME: what is it?
MARK: ipad 2
ME: no no it hasn’t spoilt anything
MARK: will you still want it?
ME: absolutely. Can I ask what model it is?
MARK: ipad 2
ME: there are 6 models. 16, 32 or 64gb and either with or without 3G
MARK: yours is 64
ME: what!!! Really? 3g or wifi only?
MARK: have I been had? Guy in the shop said it was the best one.
ME: no no you havnt been had. I need to sit down
So there you have it. I was already impatient waiting on him getting home mid September but now I have a little "extra" something to look forward to.
love the forum, laid back, no flaming going on, nice
