By now I’m sure most/all of you have heard that Apple came out with this iPad thing. Some people love it, others hate it. My family falls into the category of “love it”. Here are a few photos of the kids in action with it.
Since I got it about a month ago I have had about 6 client meetings and each of those couples has almost been more interested in it more than my photos. I get all kinds of questions about it and basically the meetings end up with me talking about the wedding with the bride while the dude just looks at comic books on my iPad. Hey, as long as they’re booking right? :)
The most common theme seems to be “It’s basically like a big iPhone right?” Let me answer that question with a little story.
Imagine all you knew as a child were bath tubs. Then one day, someone explained and told you about a “big bathtub” it’s like 10 times the size of a bath tub. No big deal right? I mean, we’ve all seen bath tubs and know what they are. The thing is, once you actually get into a swimming pool you realize this is nothing like a bath tub.
That’s exactly what owning an iPad is like. The photos and technical specs don’t begin to do it justice. I can’t even begin to express just how much our kids love this thing. They are constantly reading, watching movies, or playing games on this. This will be the only computer they grow up knowing. It’s amazing just how “strange” a keyboard and mouse seem to a 3 year old, but every kids just “gets” this device. It took Luke, our 2 year old, about three minutes to figure out everything he needed to know about it. This is the future of computers, education, books, movies, and wedding planning. That’s right, I said wedding planning. You know that ridiculous binder you have full of pages, phone numbers, lists, and photos. They will all be on this device within the next year. Now you are interested right?
If you are a parent of younger kids, you HAVE to really consider getting this for your family.
If you are a student, you should totally convince your parents to get you one for school.
If you are a bride, you and your fiance will fight over who gets to keep this till you get married.
If you are thinking about booking, call me up and I’ll give you a free demo at our meeting. :)
