My husband is DEFINITELY a PC guy. With the exception of a few applications and jobs (like anything with photos, graphics, etc.) my husband definitely feels that a PC is superior to an Apple.
He feels that the price for design is not worth it.
I knew I wanted an iPad when my friend Doug showed me The Going to Bed Book for iPad. It’s a book by Sandra Boynton. You can do so many cool things with it with that app: pop bubbles, move clothes around, and you can turn on hot bathtub water and condensation will build up on the screen and you can wipe it off with your fingers. The link shows a demo of it, and it is so flippin’
I. wanted. it. so. so. much.
In fact, I’ve told my friends that I was willing to risk divorce for an iPad3. You all think I’m joking. You underestimate my husband’s dislike for Apple
I have been telling him for a year that because I was working now, I was going to buy an iPad 3. The conversation wasn’t pretty. “You can get a tablet that can do far more.” “YES BUT THE iPAD FEELS LIKE HEAVEN TO TOUCH.”. “It’s a waste of money…there are so many tablets that out perform it!.” “Yes, but I LOVE IT.”
Like I said, he doesn’t feel that the money for the design is worth it.
It’s soooo pretty.
But between our percentage of cost with the surgery, medical costs out of pocket before being insured, getting a dog and the big kicker…no longer having any money of my own (which is so very hard but a post for another day)…an iPad 3 is a purchase that will not be happening any time soon…if ever.
I don’t need one anyway.
But, OH, how I want one.
A friend send me a photo of one that they purchased and I literally about choked on jealousy*.
I know I can’t have one but somehow that hasn’t stopped me from WANTING one severely, dammit.
At least there will be peace in my household since I’m not purchasing an expensive Apple product I love so much I want to marry it and have little iPad3 babies with it.
Ya getting one? Want one? Have one?
What do you think?
*They are very lovely and deserve their new toy. I’m totally happy for them. I just wish I had a fun toy to play with too. :)
