I’m a gadget freak. i was [at least one of] the first on my block to have a DVD player, a Tivo, a smart phone (before they were called that), a mobile broadband device (Mi-Fi card), a bluetooth headset, a Drobo, and a Netgear Digital Media Receiver. Every one of those devices has significantly changed the way I do things, although the first one (DVD player) was replaced by the last one (Netgear EVA 2000). Non-ripped DVDs are SOOOO last year.
But the iPad let me wondering “Why?” But after a while I decided to try one out. What the heck, I figured. I can always return it.
Return it I did. Want to know why?
