Over the past few months, I’ve written chapter and verse about why I do not use an iPad very much. In contrast, my wife, Barbara, sticks to hers like glue. She is never far from it, and often has it in her hands when she’s walking around the house doing various chores. Or she places it nearby.
To her, it’s an indispensable tool for managing email, and for checking her Facebook account. In her spare time, she’s an animal rights activist. For such purposes, her iPad is essential. Her iPhone 5c is less suitable, since she has vision problems and only uses it for phone calls.
In contrast, I have no real use for one right now, and only work with it to help her fix a problem. It’s not that I object to tablets and all, but I can do mobile stuff on my iPhone. The iPad’s larger display ought to make it easier to manage email and write articles such as this, but I just turn to my iMac for such tasks.
