Yes, but very disappointing. All I can hear now is my father saying, “Patience is a virtue,” on an endless loop in my head.

Looking for some good suggestions for useful apps on the iPad & iPhone.  What are your top 5 faves?

AMAZON SAYS E-BOOKS NOW TOP HARDCOVER SALES — nytimes.com
"The fact that e-books now outsell hardcover books is ‘astonishing when you consider that we’ve been selling hardcover books for 15 years, and Kindle books for 33 months,’ Amazon’s chief executive, Jeffrey P. Bezos, said in a statement.”
A trend that will gain traction?  I still think there’s something great about holding a book in your hands while you read it.

Well, after a bit of debate with myself as to whether or not I would really get the kind of use I’d need to out of an iPad to make the purchase worth my while, I finally broke down and took the plunge.  I must admit, I’m pretty anxious for it to arrive.  

Not long ago, I would’ve been the person you’d hear saying that the iPad is for all intents and purposes just a bigger iPhone and that if you already owned a laptop, there isn’t much point to spending more money on a device such as this.  However, the more video demos I watched, the more I began to realize that in this particular instance, the decision isn’t much about having new features (though there are over 200,000 apps ready & waiting), but instead, it’s really about function & convenience.  

Perhaps more than any other reason, I like new gadgets and my birthday’s coming up in a couple of weeks, so let’s just consider this an early present to myself :-)
