Hurrah, I’ve actually managed to buy an Apple iPad! I wanted one as soon as Apple announced them but our trip to France stopped me from getting one until now. I got mine on Monday evening (today being Saturday morning) and have spent every available minute on it! It struck me that the iPad is the modern equivalent of the filofax.
I used to love filofaxes – I can remember having at least 4 over the years. Varying from the mini size to a giant one I got after attending a time management course. You’d buy the basic filofax in the colour and texture of your choice and then customise it with different inserts – turning it into something personal. And that’s exactly what you do with an iPad. You buy the model that you want and then load different applications and wallpapers, buy a case or other accesories to personalise it. My iPad is totally different to anyone elses and I love that. I have my photos, my music and my applications loaded. I can see wet, cold Sunday afternoons are never going to be boring again!
