When Matthew came up a couple weeks ago he had just gotten himself a new iPad Touch. It was awesome. I couldn't stop thinking about it.
eBay to the rescue!
The first picture above is the first screen, showing the basic apps that come with it. The second screen is games and other stuff, the third screen is primarily news apps; they were all free. (I did pay $1.99 for a downloadable book to read in the Kindle app.) The gadget has wireless internet access which is a trip in itself. It does pretty much everything an iPhone can do except make phone calls.
This is fun. I have been wanting a snazzy handheld gadget that could access the internet, but I couldn't justify the ongoing expense of a smart phone, especially since cell phone service here is rather limited. Not to mention that I really didn't NEED it; my Tracfone serves my needs perfectly well for <$50/year. Now I have exactly what I lusted for, but much cheaper.
