I want an invite to google+ I think it will be cool. One of the main issues I had with Facebook was I didn’t want everyone on my friends list to know my business. That’s where I’m sold on google+ you can let a group or “circle” of friends know what you want without the other groups knowing.

Lol I had written a letter to google for a google wave invite which I got but found it to quite useless and couldn’t find any excuse to use it. But I’m looking foreword to this.
Btw anyone with google+ send me an invite thanks in advance

we all know blackberry was a fad for us non business people types. Especially in London every college to university student had to have one. Why? One reason of course BBM (blackberry messenger) thats primarily why I bought one, I needed a new phone at the time and I was very picky. I had just said goodbye to my Sony Ericsson w810i which had died on me after going through hell and back. I wanted a slim black simple phone nothing complicated, as I sifted through the offerings from the entirety of the mobile phone world I was pointed to a blackberry Which in my defence was black. I had been convinced by friends that a blackberry phone was “amazing”. “You could do so much with it.” it’s a business phone so it will help organise your life!”. Turned out to be quite the opposite I had gotten a chunky blackberry curve, at first it took some time getting used to as the keypad was integrated within the qwerty keyboard so made dialling slightly confusing. As I played around with it my feelings towards the curve had changed, having a full qwerty keyboard paired with the BBM messenger really was an experience especially at a time when the must have accessory was a blackberry and the common phrase amongst the youth were “what’s your pin?”.

Having a blackberry at the time meant you were a part of an elite social network and were connected at all times. Whereas your peers would be left to logging Into Facebook when they got the chance at home in the library or even in-class. Groups really made things much more interesting to the point you could tell a person had a blackberry by the constant pinging sound coming from their pocket. This novelty wore off quick as the alerts from the group never stopped even at night!

After a month or two the problems started to surface. The complexity of the interface began to irritate, the blackberry world (AppStore) had been let Down as majority of the apps were overpriced, irrelevant or absolutely useless. A perfect example was that of an app that made an led flash continuously with multiple colours.

The worst encounters were when your blackberry froze yes froze! While you were compiling a plain and simple text message. When it would crash requiring a reboot which meant you had to update all your BB contacts. This wasn’t isolated instances I didn’t just receive a dodgy BB, friends colleagues peers passers by all had the same problems if not worse and yet more and more people joined the club because the ongoing trend was growing.

I really didn’t know why people didn’t speak out against the appalling hinderances having a blackberry created. Rather they promoted it, as faith was in their heart that one day it would be sorted.

Alas blackberry continued down the path that has lead them to lose Market share year after year releasing minor upgrades in terms of specs on their handsets. All inheriting the underlying problems that the early curves and bolds faced.

Are you one of those people like me who really really want an ipad2 but cannot justify it? Want a direct solution to your problem? Already read tons of articles hoping they would justify it for you? Fed up because they always just tell you the positive and negative and tell you to make your own mind up? Well this articles for you!!!

Gonna keep it short and sweet. Buy it! Nah but honestly I would recommend you buy it, that’s what you wanted to hear wasn’t it?
If that wasn’t enough then actually consider what you would use it for. I’m sick and tired of people saying you can’t do this and you can’t do that on an iPad. But honestly you can do a lot on it especially as the ever multiplying apps from the AppStore provide you with the app you want for your specific needs. Well for the most of us anyway unlucky you loser out there, you know who you are.

Anyway think about your daily routine what does it involve if it’s like that of an average user who surfs the web plays games and doesn’t have the patience to create,compose,edit etc etc then The iPads for you.

The iPad is a luxury item buy it and have fun showing it off to family friends or passers by while on the train on the way to work. It’s always on! This is one of the main functions we take for granted. This means you can get to what you want before you run out of patience for example with a laptop or notebook etc.

Another reason to buy the iPad is the user experience as anyone who has an existing idevice knows it’s simple it’s easy and did I forget it’s simple and easy to use!!

Anyway for all those readers that wanted justification shoved In their face did it convince you? What will you do now?

A request to all iPad2 owners that see this, please post a comment whether it was worth it or not.

As I said I did not want to mention all the positive an negative aspects of the ipad2 as there are millions of articles out there. But wanted to tell those that wanted it to go get it.

As for me personally I wouldn’t get it I will wait patiently for the iPad3 as I know I am gonna use the iPad3 for media consumption while I’m on the go. As 3G does not do it for me. I wish and pray that the ipad3 has some sort of 4g gushing out. I am from the uk so I am preparing for a letdown.

Even with this decision in mind I constantly see an iPad2 when I’m commuting or on tv in my daily life and I want it. It’s hard but be patient is what I tell myself.
