Finally… It Has Arrived…

After months of hearing about it… thinking about it… admiring its sleek and compact structure… wondering what I'd do when actually faced with it… then going through the process of acquiring it… the moment is here! What am I going on about? Wait for it………

The arrival of…

                                           MY iPAD 3 !!!!


Yay!! And Eeeeek!! And OMG!! And yes, I'm actually typing this post on the iPad!! So if there are any mistakes, please bear with me. My tech-challenged brain has just been turned upside-down all over again…

But what a joy it is…to type on a screen that does not go blank or freeze or do the hundred-and-one strange things that the computer does. Well, considering MY desk top computer is about 100 years old, that's too be expected, I suppose…

So I'm sure it will take me a little time to get used to it… And there will be lots of mistakes along the way… But hey, that's okay. Ah, the sheer joy of walking onto the verandah and typing… Look I can see the people walking pass and can wave to them while I'm blogging! And I can walk to the kitchen, switch on the water for a cuppa… Aaaaaah, this is the life…

                                         HELLO WORLD!

No more glued to the chair in the corner, hunched over the desktop (which has been giving me a knot in my shoulder…)

And there's loads of Apps at the App Store (see I'm learning the lingo…)But more of that later… so for now, I'm going to hit the publish button… And hope this post is legible (at the very least…)

                                              WISH ME LUCK !!!

    Welcome to the awesome world of the iPad III!!!! I use mine all the time and take it everywhere.

    • michelle on July 30, 2012 at 9:27 pm

      Thanks Alex. I'm going to blog-on-the-move…  🙂 Well, I'll give it a go when I have more confidence with the gadget.

    Lucky you!! Freedom from the ball and chain that is the desktop… You're light years ahead of me! Well, take lots of notes cause when I finally get one (maybe next year?) I can bug you for suggestions/ adivce on usage. (:

      F-R-E-E-D-O-M! The funny thing is that I'm the ultimate tech-challenged person. Yet here I am with an i-Pad… 🙂 There's hope for every one. *chuckles* I don't know why, but I actually thought that you already have one… ?

  3. tara tyler on July 29, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    yeah! its awesome, isnt it?
    i still have the first gen, and proud to say it still works great! use it in peace and joy!

    • michelle on July 30, 2012 at 9:31 pm

      A-W-E-S-O-M-E is an understatement! Thanks TTT – I'll definitely use it in peace and joy.

    Wow, an iPad? That's so cool!

    • michelle on July 30, 2012 at 9:33 pm

      Yep! C-O-O-L! That's me… 🙂 Thanks G.E.

    An iPad 3?  Wow, you lucky duck!  I'd love to have one of those.  You did great typing this post on it.  I didn't notice any mistakes.  Have fun with your new toy!

    • michelle on July 30, 2012 at 9:36 pm

      Ah, I sure feel like a lucky duck! And a blessed one too… 🙂 It's funny you mentioned the word toy, because that's the exact reference hubby gave… my new toy! 🙂

  6. Medeia Sharif on July 30, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    I love my iPad. I've had it for 7 months and I'm still discovering things about it. It looks like you're already enjoying yours. 🙂

    • michelle on July 30, 2012 at 9:37 pm

      I am enjoying it! I'm also determined to learn as much as I can… but I won't rush it. I'll take my time. 🙂

  7. Julie on July 30, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Congrats on your new iPad! I share one with my husband, though it can be temperamental at times.  Sometimes it does freeze up on me, but I love how versatile it is. I also like having it around in the kitchen so I can keep an eye on things. Enjoy your iPad 3!          Julie

    • michelle on July 30, 2012 at 9:44 pm

      Uh-oh! You mean the i-Pad can also be temperamental at times…? And here I was thinking I'd finally left all those annoying "antics" behind with the desk top computer… Oh well, I suppose it's still a machine, after all… But yes, it's super versatile! As I said to my hubby, it has the entire world inside it! There are SO MANY applications for various things, it's mind-boggling, especially to a tech-challenged brain like mine. Thanks Julie, I'm sure I will enjoy it! 🙂 Well, I have no option… it's here to stay… there's no turning back! 🙂

  8. Carol Kilgore on July 30, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    Very cool!
    I don't have an iPad, but I know you'll love it.
    Congratulations 🙂

    • michelle on July 30, 2012 at 9:54 pm

      Thank you Carol. I'm looking forward to learning all sorts of things on it. 🙂

  9. Claudia Del Balso on July 31, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    OMG! iPad 3? I'm still thinking plain iPad. When did 3 come out?!?! I'm still trying to figure out my smart phone, LOL! Don't feel bad, you're not the only one who's technically challenged. I'm always two steps behind all these new gadgets. Congrats on your new toy! Enjoy!

  10. michelle on July 31, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    *chuckles* Claudia, I'm in the same boat as you! I don't know too much about the model, all I know is that it's an I-Pad 3. That's the sum total of my knowledge. There could be other versions of the I-Pad such as i-Pad 4 or 5… I wouldn't know. I don't keep track of latest technology and would have been just as happy with a plain i-Pad. I really don't know the difference from one to the other. This one was on a special deal which was too good to ignore (according to my son who keeps abreast of these things…) 🙂

  11. Tyrean on August 1, 2012 at 2:45 pm

    Cool!!! I haven't entered the iPad world yet . . . but maybe someday.

    • michelle on August 1, 2012 at 7:32 pm

      If I can do it, then anyone can! After all, I am THE quintessential technologically-challenged person! LOL.

  12. Rekha on August 2, 2012 at 8:01 am

    Congrats Mish….hope you have lots of fun writing, reading and playing music on it.

  13. michelle on August 2, 2012 at 3:26 pm

    Thanks Rekha. I look forward to it! 🙂

  14. Jocelyn Rish on August 6, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    I finally got one about two months ago, and it was love at first sight. Enjoy!

    • michelle on August 7, 2012 at 9:20 am

      I can't say that mine was love at first sight… for me it was driven by necessity more than anything else. 🙂 But hey, the love can grow… over time… 🙂

  15. Lynda R. Young on August 7, 2012 at 7:59 am

    Gotta love new technology! Have fun with your new toy 🙂

    • michelle on August 7, 2012 at 9:22 am

      Me and new technology… not on! But I'm learning to embrace it… it seems okay, at the moment… 🙂

  16. nutschell on August 8, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    Hurray! I can just imagine how excited you are. I'm thinking of getting a tablet myself, though I'm more of a PC girl and might actually just go for an android one 🙂


    • michelle on August 9, 2012 at 7:08 am

      Excited and apprehensive at the same time! I don't know too much about style/model etc. All I know is that it's an i-Pad, which is a computer-on-the-go!! LOL! I'll learn as I go along. 🙂

  17. nutschell on August 15, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    just saying hello!You must be thorougly enjoying your new ipad. 🙂
