Probably the most in-depth review of “the new” iPad. The most interesting thing about the iPad is how it’s a symbol of the march of technology. In my college dorm room I had an 8086 clone with no hard drive and dual 5.25″ floppy disc drives! The monitor was 720 x 480 and weighed 25lbs. When you consider how much more powerful a handheld iPad is, it’s pretty amazing. I haven’t had my 25th reunion yet. That’s a lot of ground covered. Computers aren’t just for geeks anymore. I was thrilled to be able to type my papers after library hours. Now you could shoot and edit a Hi-Def movie on a piece of glass, then upload it in minutes on a super fast LTE network for all the world to see. And the library comes to you. Stacks of books fitting into one slab thinner than any paperback. And of course studying and presenting the Bible on a touchscreen is pretty amazing, too. My tag line is “letting the Christian Scriptures bring life into focus…” Now it’s easier than ever to do just that.
