If you are expecting another Russian dolls blog - it’s not coming and I am done with that show.
....It all began with my older son, who decided that for college he needed a Mac instead of our old reliable Gateway (remember those?). Before Mac entered our household, we happily lived with our Dells, and HPs. We navigated the World Wide Web (which I did not believe in 10 yeas ago) with our old, reliable desktops who changed their appearances throughout the years – they went from looking like this
We listened to our favorite music on the very first MP3 player that looked like this
slowly graduating to more modern technology like this
….and then Apple entered our lives. From laptops, to i-pods to now i-pads we all "appled" up!! (I am sorry, but this is the word I am using). Every one of us, with the exception of my hubby, has i-pods, even Max, who got his last year for Chanukkah, thanks to my brother. I listen to my songs and books, while jogging down my street and my kids listen to anything and everything from rap to Hebrew blessings,
my 12 year old plays games on it, my oldest son Skyped with it when he lived overseas, etc. I get it - it’s a wonderful and useful toy, equipment way beyond my needs.
....But NO, I was not satisfied, I was not done with my appleness (yes another stupid word, I know). I whined, and whined until my husband could not listen to my whining anymore and for my birthday I got the most beautiful white with orange cover I-Pad 2, that has my name on it! I was the
coolest chick in town.
My husband was happy - I stopped whining, I was happy - I stopped whining, but now ask me what I do with my precious toy – I check my e-mail, I update my FB and Twitter status and I play (so embarrassed to admit) solitaire. Yes, I downloaded about 12,000.00 books but did not read any yet!(I still prefer old-fashioned books.)
....and then just to make me feel even more stupid I watch all these amazing commercials on TV and I realize that I should attend the Apple School, so I can make magic too, just like the guy below!!!
