necessary: the ipad 2

i’m an apple fan.  full disclosure: i waited in line for the last 2 iphones the day they came out.  am i embarrassed?  no, not at all.  they’ve served me well.  i’ve convinced friends and parents to make the transition to apple.  macs are so much easier to use i tell them.  after they buy one, they agree.  so when apple made the announcement about the ipad 2 today, i was on @macrumorslive following the presentation.  i almost wrecked my car when i saw steve jobs was there.

i didn’t buy the first ipad.  i can’t tell you why.  i wanted to.  i don’t know how many times i walked into the apple store with the intent to purchase one and then walked back out.  i think it’s mostly about price.  i couldn’t part with $700.  in all honesty, i still don’t want to, but i have to.  the new ipad 2 is thinner, lighter, and faster than the old one.  in addition, they’ve added a camera on both sides of the device so you can use it to capture images or use the facetime app.  they’re also releasing garage band and imovie for the ipad, so you can edit and create content on the go.  i’m impressed.
