Winsome Wednesday: Marsha! Marsha! Marsha!

Your regularly scheduled Winsome Wednesday will be interrupted by the overwhelming news of the day: the introduction of the long awaited Apple iPad.

While the Apple iPad's name is already generating some discussion, overall the reviews have been very positive. It appears that most Apple lovers are glad to finally see a touch screen tablet with the Apple name on it.

What struck me immediately is that it's taken over a quarter of a century to even get close to the appliance that the technology gurus predicted we would have. Yes, it's the history of the joys of the free enterprise system. We were able to put a man on the moon within 8 years of predicting it, yet it's taken all this time to get here.

Well, here we are....a nice little appliance that you can purchase, so you can purchase more stuff from the Apple store. You will need to have an iTunes account when you buy the iPad.

Don't worry about not being able to take pictures or use a webcam, because you can use your iPhone for that. Oh yes, you won't be able to use this iPad as a phone, so I guess it's really not the appliance that was predicted in the 1980's. No worries, there will be an upgrade.
