for me: i think if grabbing magazines were like grabbing songs off of iTunes, i’d be pretty into that. one of the things i hate about magazines now is that i’m left with this physical artifact laying around my house that i do. not. want. and have to dispose of.
for others: i’ve been pondering whether my mom would enjoy an iPad. right now she uses a windows desktop. she’s definitely into communicating online with friends and family so maybe doing that from the screen porch would be more fun than being up in a little room in the house? OTOH, maybe she doesn’t want the internet to intrude into the living areas. i can see her feeling that way.
if it were five years ago i’d be trying to think of a way to run a mobile web cam off the thing. but not so much these days.
