This is the third post in my series "I Went Mac, But Then I Went Back." If you want to catch up on the previous posts, click the links below:
There are a number of hardware components that helped me make my change to a PC from a Mac. Some of them were more important to me than others, but there were a few that were major factors.
Stay tuned for the next post of why I went Mac, but then went back!
I use my iPad every single day. I love all the things I can do on my iPad. Here are some of the things I use my iPad for:
- Check Facebook
- Check my emails
- Listen to music on Spotify
- Surf the Internet
- Write blog posts
- Catch up on the latest news using Twitter and Flipboard
- Read books using iBooks, Google Books and Amazon Kindle App
- Manage my finances
- Access all my important files on my Dropbox
- Create documents using Pages and Numbers
- Watch movies and TV shows on Netflix
- Write in my journal using the Day One app
- View my family tree using the Ancestry.com and a few other genealogy apps
- View my photos on Flickr using FlickStackr
- Play a few games like Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride and Clash of Clans
So, as you can see I use my iPad for quite a bit. I use my iPad more than I use my laptop anymore. However, there are still some things that just can't be done on the iPad yet. There are many websites that require Flash. There are multitasking issues. I can't have two applications open on the screen on my iPad like I can a computer.
There are many other small things that you just can't do on an iPad that you can a computer.
I would love to see developers of website and apps making their websites mobile friendly or making apps available not just for the iPhone, but also the iPad. I have a few apps on my iPhone that don't have a native iPad version. I can install the iPhone version on my iPad, but it definitely isn't the same.
So, to all you developers out there, I know it takes time and money to make apps but please make your apps for both the iPhone and iPad! :)
I am a big movie buff. I really enjoy kicking back and watching a good movie. Some of my favorite types of movies are those that make you think.
Tonight I watched One Week with my brother and aunt. My brother first mentioned the movie a couple of months ago but I had not watched it yet and neither had my aunt.
One Week is about a guy named Ben, played by Joshua Jackson, in his late 20's early 30's who finds out he has stage four cancer. The doctor tells him he needs to start treatments right away. Success rate for his type of cancer is only 10%.
After talking with the doctor Ben buys a motorcycle and decides he is going to take a trip across Canada on his motorcycle. Ben tells his fiancé about his cancer and his trip. He tells her he needs time to "find himself."
He begins his journey in Toronto heading west seeing many landmarks. Along his trip he meets various people and learns more about himself and "who he is."
One of my favorite things about watching the movie was the time he sent in Alberta. I served an LDS Mission in southern Alberta and so it was fun for me to see these places that were in my mission. He visits the Worlds Largest Teepee in Medicine Hat, the Dinosaur Park in Drumheller and Banff National Park.
He continues on to the ocean in British Columbia and accomplishes his goal of making his way west.
The whole movie is narrated with information about Ben and his movements throughout Canada. The last thing that the narrator states is a question asking what you would do if you found out you had only one week left to live. Where would you go? What would you do? Who would you want to meet?
