I am a radiologist who was exposed to computers as part of my work beginning in the 1980's to the point where now I read all of my imaging exams on a PACS (picture archive and communications system). Along the way I developed an intense, if somewhat shallow, attachment to devices using computer technology. The shallow part relates to my knowledge of the intricacies of the technology underlying the elegant smart phones, computers, etc. available today. I have a Macbook Pro, an iMac, an iPod nano and an iPod touch. I have an iPad on order. I am immensely looking forward to its arrival and will undoubtedly have a lot of questions about using it.
