this shit grew on me and i can't believe what a valuable tool this has become for me professionally and personally over the course of the last year. i use it for almost everything i used to do on my laptop (except for the heavy stuff), and rarely do much of anything on my smarthphone anymore other than to make a call or send a text message, both of which i can do on my iPad. i think this gadget should be in the hands of every serious, struggling, or underprivileged student, and now with apple's plan to get into the textbook market i can only see good things to come of this for the future of education. i can't believe i just wrote this about an apple product. i think i am starting to slowly transform into a fan boy. the only thing i need now is to grow out a beard, wear a scarf, and drink lattes at starbucks. wait...wat?
