I was listening to a podcast, and they were comparing the iPad and the Surface... The guy started referring to the iPad as being the "better machine". While I understand it is a machine for all intents and purposes, but I never really considered it to be a machine.... It just struck me as odd, as I consider my computer a machine, but my iPad is so much more then a machine... it is my friend... I miss it when it isn't in my hands... What do you guys think? Is your iPad more then a machine to you? Or am I just crazy and need to get a life?
