This blog brought to you from my iPad

April 13, 2010

So I got the iPad! In fact I’m in the car on the way to Wormy’s dads house right now while I type this. I must say typing is rather easy on the touch screen keyboard. I’m not sure of Wormy’s love for the device since I’ve devoted the last few hours to playing with it. The interface is much like the iPhone which makes using it a breeze. I was disappointed in the fact all the iWork apps they taut are $9.99 a piece. I did break down and buy Pages. That’s what I’m using to write this. Any non iPad formatted apps load and are scaled down to the size of the iPhone/touch screen size. The device is very responsive and apps load super quick. The not having Internet can be a downside to a lot of apps and there isn’t an app for that. While away on “Jesus is proof zombies can take over the world” weekend I was stuck for 36 hours without Internet, this felt like an eternity! I mean who doesn’t have wireless Internet at their house? Both of Wormy’s parents that’s who! So fast forward 5 days later as I finish this blog post and I’m now on the T home finishing. I’ve put music and movies on my device and it pretty much hasn’t left my side. I’m excited for more apps to come out and have grabbed a lot already. I’ve put some music and movies on here and have big plans for Chilla’s iPad! For all you Apple haters out there at least go try it before you knock it and bitch that it’s just an over sized iPhone or iPod touch because its way more!

My name is Chilla and I’m an addict!

April 1, 2010

My name is Chilla and I’m a tech addict.  Best Buy, The Apple Store, Tiger Direct, and New Egg are my personal meccas.  The bushed steel, polycarbonate white, and sound of a cooling fans get me all a thither, not to mention any new or old camera that I haven’t seen or phone that I haven’t touched.

Currently I’m working on Wormy’s apartment to update it to all the latest and greatest tech.  I must say Wormy is the best girlfriend ever, she never says “Don’t get that it’s too expensive?” , “Why do we need that?” , “Don’t we already have 3 of those?” , “Why is the apartment starting to glow nuclear radiation green?”.  Sooner, hopefully than later I’ll have the whole apartment rigged with most things being voice activated or at least on timers.

Chilla's Command Center (Version 1)

From my computers, yes I have 4 desktops, 1 laptop, a netbook, I also have 4 digital cameras, a digital camcorder, 3 TVs, an Xbox, and some other various stuff.  If it has a power button I get excited. Most of my time I spend in front of a computer, 10 hours a day working and the other 10 pissing around trying to learn or experiment.

I also have a minor bag addiction.  I have an irrational phobia of what would happen if the apartment burned down or were robbed, call me crazy I know.  The bags are also preconfigured for where I’m going/what I’m doing for the day.  So most of the time you’ll find me lugging 10 lbs of crap around with me like a security blanket.  Well a new iPad purchase is calling my name so I need to go shopping.  TTYL.
