Hello. I'm basically a loyalty-neutral techie who feels as at home with Windows XP as he does with OSX (and a former iPod Classic user who nows uses a Zune). I don't always go for the most popular solution, but they generally work well for me, whatever the case. I'm currently pondering the acquisition of some iPads as gifts later this year, so I'm doing my homework. Previously, my only experience has been purchasing them for the "important" people where I work.
