iPad 3

I know this will shock no one but I bought an iPad 3 or iPad 4G or whatever the hell they are calling it. What might surprise you was I didn’t really care about upgrading to the new one. This move was done so Sheri could have my old iPad 2.

Don’t get me wrong the graphics are crazy good. It is noticeably faster for me and I can’t wait to watch movies on it when we fly to London. I also like the new dictation feature which I have used a lot over the last three days. Other than that it isn’t much different. It is slightly heavier and I mean slightly. I barely notice it. Some people are saying their’s are running hot but I worked the hell out of mine on Friday and I experienced no such phenomena.

If you already have an iPad 2 though, I probably wouldn’t recommend this upgrade. I don’t think it brings anything new to the table you can’t live without. While the graphics are better they are not so much better that I wouldn’t say wait for the next one. Plus, I have noticed one small drawback. It does seem to take a long time to charge.

If you are still working on the first iPad I could see making the jump. It pretty much kicks the first iPad’s ass. I, myself, do pretty much everything on my iPad now. About the only time I regularly switch to a laptop or desktop is when I am reading comics at Marvel online. For some reason they are still using flash to deliver their comics. Despite the fact they use Comixology for new digital comics. Hopefully Marvel will remedy that soon.

C.S. Daley was born in California but has spent most of his life in his imagination. His first short story written in third grade, the now classic "Close Encounters of the Turd Kind," was sold to his next door neighbor for a quarter. The neighbor promptly demanded a refund. An unhealthy obsession with the writings of Neil Gaiman, Christopher Moore, and Terry Pratchett have left his mind warped and broken. He spends most of his evening swilling down coffee while tapping at a keyboard under the watchful eyes of his kittens. They are there to make sure he doesn't snap. He likes to write fantasy for adults and teens.
