Me and My iPad

I’ve got a bunch of posts queued up that are almost ready for publishing, but I thought I’d toss this out there, since I’m using it now to type this post.

I preordered an iPad, with the excuse of needing it for work, but we all know I would have gotten it anyway. I’m already impressed just by the apps people developed without even having access to the device. I’ve been watching movies on Netflix, sketching with Adobe Ideas, and now writing this. Typing is nice, even if there’s no Dvorak layout on the thing.

I’m surprised that there still seems the be no keychain syncing — I’m still typing in passwords to everything I’ve already got stored on my Macs and iPhone. And the lack of third-party multitasking is more frustrating here than on the iPhone, but still not that bad — and thankfully it’s training developers to write applications that don’t lose data when they crash, and that can remember what you were doing when you quit.

With any luck, this will cut down on me dragging my laptop around everywhere. There are no dev tools on here (of course), but a decent VNC client might make that moot. Maybe I’ll even manage to post here a bit more often …
