iPad, wePad, youPad

taken from here
well nomenclature was never really my thing and so I just gonna stick with iPad and iPod.

So yes I just managed to order an iPad and got it delivered yesterday and so far I rather like it and it's amazingly thin. I also ordered several iPod touches (8GB) and spend all my skymiles on it.

Why? Cause they have a good resale value on ebay and my skymyles where about to expire and I still had not enough miles to fly for free anywhere.

I mean really, I can only redeem 20k miles for 100$, this means I need 200k miles for a free flight to germany. But at the same time I can redeem 30k miles for a 250$ iPod? I'm not a genius with math, but I have the feeling that this is a far better deal. So it will be

miles -> iPod's -> ebay -> savings account -> flight

Now back to the iPad,

It is real nice, real thin and looks great with the red cover in my new bag. Yes I finally caved in and bought  yet another bag to carry laptop/camera and iPad in. So that I can arrive at work in style and not with 2 bags, helmet and so on. picture

For my defense, my old bag was bought for the 10" Lenovo I used to have and the 13" macbook never fit.

I'm also currently playing with a friends Luminix LX5 compact camera, which I was considering. But like always my 4 year old DSLR is so much faster and takes better pictures. I really don't want to have a camera without a viewfinder. Another 400$ saved, I guess.

And last, but not least. I tried oysters last night and they are rather tasty. Even with there weird texture. But at 3$ for a shell. I thought i can afford and risk to spit it out.
