A is for Apple

Well this is my first blog post in the A-Z Challenge which means it has to be something beginning with A.    One of the first things we learn as children is that A is for Apple.    On that note today I’m going to show you the Apple ipad 2.   This was only released in Australia last Friday which has meant that it’s been all over the morning television (along with the usual places).   One thing that really impressed me was the load time between the ipad 1 and ipad 2, the apple ipad 2 was so much faster when it compared to two side by side.   They tried three different things and the difference in response time was very noticeable.

The camera also looked pretty cool, forget about the little screens on the back of your digital camera, this shows your photo on a 9.7 inch screen which looked awesome (note I only saw this on TV, but I’ll go out on a limb and say this is a feature that I love).

Here are the technical bits (straight from Amazon, in case I stuff them up :D)

Personally I haven’t seen the ipad 2 in real life, but then I still don’t have an ipad so………..

What are your thoughts on the ipad 2, do you have one, want one or are you just meh about the whole thing?


  1. Clever idea. A is for Apple ipad2. I want one. you sold me on it. I wonder how many months we will have to wait for them to come out here in NZ? I was in Oz, when the released the first one, and it was months before we saw one here.

  2. Well they came out in Oz last Friday and (of course) were all sold out in record time.

  3. I wish i was independently wealthy (in fact I'd even settle for dependently wealthy)--I'd love to have brand new Apple everything... *nods*

  4. I'm definitely 'meh' - I just have no head for anything technical. I can just about navigate my old Nokia phone, and basic websites. Th hubby would LOVE one, however...

  5. I am technologically challenged. It's a wonder I ever figured out how to turn on my computer lol The ipad is way too advanced for me.

  6. I'm constantly amazed at how quickly my daughter will pick up things such as the ipad.

  7. I have never interested on this sort of things until last Sunday. Last Sunday was my birthday and as a present I got an iPod Touch, and now I'm hooked to it!

  8. We gave my dd an ipod touch for her birthday last year - her face was so full of wonder, it was well worth it :D

  9. I own both the first and second generation iPad, and the load time is significantly faster! Like the camera and Facetime as well.
