And I posted it because I am killing time until my pork roast is ready.
Oh ok I can make apple sauce for the pork.............I agree my iPad has replaced 95% of what I do on my MacBook and once I can sync to iCloud I will hardly need to use the MacBook there are exceptions one is etax in Australia runs on windows only and I have that on the Mac. My music collection which needs to be massaged sometimes and photos but other than that I do every thing on the iPad. I definitely have no desire for any add on external devices?
Oh an I like my crackle crisp and aalso enjoy a Fosters with my Pork.
i changed the ipad 2 keybord to black and its perfect cydia app
Let's turn this on it's head and ask ourselves, why not turn the iPad into a laptop.....that way when you need a tablet you remove the keyboard, when you want a laptop you put it back with the keyboard and use the external memory so as to save the internal memory for all those excellent apps!!
Best of both worlds and half the price of owning both!!

I see more and more posts from folks wanting the iPad to do...well...more and more. Initially people were blown out of the water by the "magic" and "awesome" iPad. Now it's almost common place and people want it do to more than it was designed to do. That's not a bad thing, it will drive more innovation by Apple and others. However in our microwave, must have it now world impatience is rearing its ugly head IMHO.
Considering only a couple of years ago the iPad didn't even exist, it's quite amazing how far it's come in many of people's day-to-day experiences.
I suspect with the rate of technological advancement we're enjoying (especially when it comes to Apple) the original iPad will seem quaint a couple of years from now when the iPad 6 (or whatever) is released. My WAG is that it will have replaced some devices and will have opened new horizons that we haven't even thought of right now. That's why the folks in Cupertino get paid the big bucks.
Here's what I think of when I consider how fast things evolve...
I goggled 'crackle crisp." Love 'em but we call them Cracklins. Pig is best. With peppers or some dipping sauce. I think that is a redneck thang, y'all.
How to Make Crisp Pork Cracklings | eHow.comI must admit, I use my iPad as a replacement for my laptop. But the MacBook Air is looking good because it is quite thin. I just wonder about those folks that buy the iPad because of its size then load it up with stuff, thus making it a "laptop." Not complaining, just observing and reading the web while the piggy cooks.
I bought my mbp in june and couldnt believe after that I spent so much money on a laptop,it was quickly followed by my ipad2,so having spent all that money I make sure I use my mbp as a laptop,email,google searches ect and use my iPad for fun,playing games ect and wil be nice for holidays as it fits in my bag,no way I want to add anything that would make it bulky or heavy,I like my iPad just as bought it.
