Being a geek you’d think I’d be really into it by now. I’ve been too exhausted, which is sad because I’ve just started 2 weeks leave from my work.
I did manage to find a use for it on Wednesday night. I “saved the trees” by putting a couple of pdf files on it so I could refer to it at a meeting. But on Friday I had to bite my tongue when in a meeting with some other people and mention was made of “wankers with iPads” (they still don’t know I have one).
I bought this stylus pen. A curious contraption that looks like an ordinary pen but otherwise with a rubber dome on the writing end. I tried making written notes with it in a couple of note taking apps I’d bought very cheaply. I could detect the rubber dome on the stylus pen wasn’t dragging across the iPad’s surface as smoothly as it should be. The effect being my hand written notes looked much like the ones I would’ve made when I was 3 years old.
My “saviour” came today in the form of a book. Head First iPhone & iPad Development, which I bought from Amazon. I might not be able to write properly on my iPad but I’m dam well going to make it pay for itself with the apps I’m going to develop.
