Can anyone tell me what the iPod, iPhone, iPad, iCraze is all about? I’ve seen an iPhone in action. I have a an iPod collecting dust on my desk. I haven’t been overly thrilled about any of them. iPhones require a contract with a cell phone company that we do not use. The iPod on my desk is small and outdated. I tried using it once by loading songs onto it to keep Little T happy during a long road trip. It failed miserable. It never played a song and I just tossed it onto my desk to never be touched again. I never could understand why I’d want to carry a bunch of music with me. But that’s obviously just me since tons of people are using iPods all the time.
So when I heard about the iPad, I figured it was the same hype but strangely, this time, I am actually interested in having one. Although, I’m not interested enough to buy one at their ridiculous price tag. The main reason is that I’ve heard about an AAC app that would aid Little T is communicating. From what I can tell, I doubt it would replace the device we just fought to get through his insurance company but it would definitely come in handy for quick outings and is something I could carry in my messenger bag to have available to him on demand at all times. The device we have is heavy and not convenient for him to carry at all times which leaves poor mom (or dad or grandma) toting around the box.
On top of that, there are tons of fun games that could easily keep Drama King or Little T occupied while we’re out running errands. And, of course there’s some benefit to me. I would finally have the e-reader I’ve been debating for the last year or so. I’d also be able to use it to jot down thoughts or ideas for blog posts as they come to me. Like when I had a great idea last night before bed but didn’t get it written down so I’ve forgotten it.
