Useful technology that just works

I love using my iPad. As a matter of fact I’m using it right now! 20121111-160027.jpg

I’m lying down on my couch typing this post with a few fingers, on a virtual keyboard. I admit, it’s maybe not the best way to compose a blog post via an iPad. However, it works and the proof is in the pudding as your reading it.

What you may not know, is that I’m also projecting from my iPad, an SBS on demand program, via my Apple TV onto my main television. It’s sitting in the background still working as I type. To me this is useful consumer technology. Its not something that is glaringly fancy, it just works.

My iPad has altered how I work, how I consume media and my perception of what useful technology is. I can do similar things on my iPhone, but find when not out and about, the iPad is the tool of choice.
