you know, there have been many times that i have found myself wishing for an ipad. both of my bosses have one, and i have to say that it’s honestly made our lives easier. we impress clients. we impress other employees. fuck, we even impress each other.
i’ve been holding out on getting one though, since i feel like it’s just a bit too much connectivity. you know? i mean, when i am at the office, i have the computer. i have a computer at home, like most of us do. in transit, i’ve got a blackberry.
i feel that’s enough. i don’t want to be doing work on a crowded train, watched by people. i don’t want to be doing spreadsheets and excel documents. i don’t want to be drafting a powerpoint presentation while the subway lurches and grinds its way to wherever the fuck i’m going. do i need to check email THAT badly while on the bus? honestly, no. no, i do not.
then i saw this shop on etsy called ‘hooby groovy‘ that makes me want an ipad. they’re other classic characters from the super mario games. running about $40, they’re just too cute.
