It all began with one mass email from Apple smartly entitled: iPad 2 is here.
“It’s thinner. It’s lighter. It’s faster.” The gift and the curse to this LA publicist. The gift because, well, THE IPAD 2 IS OUT!!! The curse because only a few short months ago, our extremely generous boss Sabina rewarded Monica and me with our very own iPads for a year’s worth of hard work. There’s not a client meeting that passes that we not all fully equipped with our iPads; lean, mean and all about business.
So once the announcement of the iPad 2 was made, a sense of excitement and yet a small twinge of sadness was felt. Why couldn’t they wait just a little bit longer? Why does it have to be in an ultra chic white? AND WHY CAN’t MY IPAD HAVE A FORWARD FACING CAMERA!?!??!?!
After doing some research, I came across this article entitled “What The iPad 2 Means For Your Wallet” and it brought some pause and relief. After reading an article from a logical person, I realized that even investors are not jumping for joy over the latest addition to the Apple family. And let’s be real: a forward facing camera isn’t life changing.
I’m still very happy with my original iPad. From updating my Netflix que to wasting my life away on Angry Birds , my iPad is my life saver and I wouldn’t give it up for anything.
