iPad, My Bra

All was well until we boarded the plane. Lifting my bag into the overhead bins, the clasp gave a mighty "sproing!" and my boobs were all WOOOO! I quickly plopped down in my seat and began to excavate my scarf so that I could maybe hide under it while I reclasped my dingdang brassiere. Of course, in order to get the scarf out, I had to first pull out the iPad, meaning that every man within four rows was craning his head towards my seat. ...more
Ohmyword. I am so sorry to tell you that I laughed HARD at your chest making a break for it.more

Ipad vs Netbook: The Verdict

It's been two weeks since I started my great iPad vs Netbook debate. The winner? Well, the iPad came in with a slight lead.Reason being was the battery life & the power. It also helped that my husband assisted me with the purchase of the case and keyboard. I have to laugh at myself because I just thought the iPad was an oversized iPhone. While it is, it won't replace my iPhone or my Desktop for that matter. In fact, it's a good go between. I do like the fact that it's very lightweight....more

The iPad: a Near-Miracle for My Son With Autism

My son Leo's life was transformed when a five-dollar raffle ticket turned into a brand-new iPad. I'm not exaggerating. Before the iPad, Leo's autism made him dependent on others for entertainment, play, learning, and communication. With the iPad, Leo electrifies the air around him with independence and daily new skills. People who know Leo are amazed when they see this new boy rocking that iPad. I'm impressed, too, especially when our aggressively food-obsessed boy chooses to play with his iPad rather than eat. I don't usually dabble in miracle-speak, but I may erect a tiny altar to Steve Jobs in the corner of our living room....more
Hello Shannon! I just found your blog and seen the story about Leo and his iPad. I have a 12 ...more

iPad vs Netbook: The Battle Wages On

At first I dismissed the iPad as an overgrown iPhone. After all, that's what it looks like. Aside from the fact you can't call anyone from it, it's pretty much an iPhone on steroids.So I talked to my husband about it a little bit. Since he's the computer genius in the family, he should tell me the difference & help me make a decision right? Well, not exactly. He just told me that a netbook & an iPad are smaller & more portable than laptops & unlike laptops, they weigh less, have a longer battery life & can only do minimal things like surf the net. ...more
