Geek Alert – iPad 2

Posted: March 3, 2011 in General

Take a peek, looks cool to me, but there again I like shiny things!

Can’t think why I’d want one but hey, when has that ever stopped anyone?

    As a happy iPad owner I lust over the iPad 2 already, if only for the performance improvements and size reduction. I’m in the US for a few days next week, but luckily for my bank I leave the day before they ship!

    So, what do you do on it?

    When I manage to get it out of my two year old son’s grubby mitts, it’s a very nice Twitter client (with Echofon), a wonderful Google Reader client (Reeder), excellent for reading articles with Instapaper. Generally it hangs around in the lounge so if I want to read email/Reader/twitter/Wikipedia/IMDB/iPlayer and so on, it’s to hand and a super-simple way of getting a task done.

    The other use-case is a very portable media player, I’ve got VLC installed so I can play video files from without having to use iTunes. Useful for getting through my 16 hour flight on Saturday, or ensuring that we have a collection of the kid’s favourite shows.
