The iPad Challenge: Cat, Dog or Man?


It has been billed as “The Best way to see the web, email, photos and video – hands down.” It’s the Apple iPad and it has taken the country by storm because of its pocketbook-friendly price of $499, a multi-touch screen and the ability to run thousands of apps.

It won’t exactly replace the PC, but give it a few more generations and who knows?

Well, it didn’t take long for this “magical” device to find its way into the paws and hands of diverse users.

Over the last few days, “Iggy” the cat, “Chloe” the Corgi and classical concert pianist Lang Lang (during an encore at San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall) test-drove this little 1.5 pound highly advanced technology, and the results are as diverse as the users.

Who is best suited to benefit from the iPad?

View the videos and let’s take a vote.

CAT



DOG



MAN

Hands down (paws down?) the cat gets my vote!

Can't say much for the real value of the iPad to the animals, but Lang Lang demonstrated some real functionality for the device. I don't know that I'd buy one for the novelty of the piano keyboard though.

Thank you for all of the wonderful comments that you have been leaving on my posts.

Cats have a way with everything don't they? Ha...well my husband has been nicknamed "Mac Daddy" by our son. We will most likely have an iPad in the near future.

You're welcome arlee! I have to agree Lang, Lang was mighty impressive. Playing piano on that tiny keyboard might be fun but an expensive toy at that! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Paula Slade said...

裕以 - Yes, these are things to "treasure" and be "grateful" for! Thanks so much for leaving your thoughts!

Paula Slade said...

Gerald - You're very welcome! I appreciate you stopping by to leave your thoughts.

Hi Brenda, I too have a cat that rules our home! :) I do believe that the iPad is going to be on quite a few people's wish list. It certainly is on mine! Thanks for taking time to weigh in on this post!
