I finally did it. I had been thinking about it for a while, had actually looked in a few stores, including the Apple store, but there were none to be found. Yesterday I made a quick run to Walmart (is that an oxymoron—can a visit to Walmart be done quickly?), and decided to just walk by the electronics department and check to see if they had an iPad. They had one—and it was exactly the one I had been thinking of getting! Last night I got a few free apps (can’t believe I’m even using that word!) and one not-so-free. I had read about an app called Brushes on the blog My Life is But a Tapestry. Looked like fun, so I sprang for it. There’s also a free Photoshop app, but I haven’t tried it yet, since I don’t have any photos on my iPad yet. At some point during the week, I’ll figure out how to get my calendar and contacts from Outlook to iTunes and then to my new iPad. Guess today I’ll spring for a cover. If only they had purple! It’s not like I have anything else to do.
