Hi,

My name is Bob. I am retired and have a thing for electronics. At 74 my iPad is just the thing to waste my time with. It is in my hand at least ten hours every day. Computers and Theology keep my old mind working all the time.

How can I keep my addiction to iPad and iPod under control? ;)

Well using it Ten hours a day is not a good start if your looking to curb it, Heck I say enjoy it, Go for 16 Hours a Day with a walk in between about every half hour or so.

I know what you mean though, sometimes you feel like you cant get enough, like sucking the Internet into your brain still wouldn't suffice. :confused:

BTW, welcome to the Forums Keypurr

I think I will take your advise. The world is in my hand.
God bless Apple Computer Company, no more PC's for me.

I understand that there are no pills tonight this addiction.
Oh well, I will just have to learn to get along with it.

Got it 3G launch day. I also wonder how I got along without it before, after a week with it! I'm not a rich person, and the $830 was a lot of money to me.....but if I were to drop and break it tomorrow I would be ordering another one tomorrow! ( I winced just typing that!)
