Well I have just got back from a wonderful holiday with the family in Florida, luckily we got back when we did otherwise it could have been another week or so in Miami because of the ash cloud, although I could think of worse places to be stuck!!
Whilst in Miami we went to the Apple Store and bought an iPad, although everyone else in the uk is having to wait until May now to get their hands on one we have ours now, and what a great product it is, just as we thought it would be and much more . Not only is it a great product but what a great service from all the staff at the Apple Store, although we had to queue we were looked after and supplied with drinks to keep us going and when you did get to the front of the queue you were personally taken into the store by a member of staff who helped you through your sale, their customer service is second to none, lets hope the staff in the UK are just as good. As you can see here is a picture of Andy and our daughter Rosie out side the Apple store with the new iPad, and he is one happy customer!!
This is what Andy has to say about the iPad: “When I watched the keynote speech from Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs my immediate thoughts were that there was nothing really different about the iPad compared to the current iTouch apart from the size. We already knew it would make a great controller for the ControlFX app (our very own iPhone and iPad app that turns these devices into a remote to control all your electronic equipment) but thought that would be the only real benefit. Having now used the iPad for over 2 weeks my view is now VERY different. The iPad is truly awesome and something that becomes a major part of the things that I do everyday. News for example is now delivered to the iPad via the BBC iPad app so I can read the days news without getting out of bed. Emails and browsing the internet are now so easy on the iPad and the gaming is fantastic. Looking forward to the flood of iPad apps that are on the way”
Let’s hope the iPad stocks get to the UK soon, and then everyone can enjoy having the world at their fingertips!!
And don’t forget to have a look at all the new apps specially designed for the iPad, including ControlFX.
