Eating fried conch at a week-old restaurant in the the Historic District of Charleston, called “david’s.” Four-hour trip down: 9 vultures, 3 hawks, 2 dead deer, 1 dead dog, 1 dead ????, and horrible gas mileage on the rental (why is it no rental companies will buy hybrids?).
Well, iPad update: the map is awesome! Didn’t really need it, since I knew where I was going, but fun. Typing: Don’t like it at all. Having to switch from the alpha board to the number board just to use a semi-colon, hyphen, parens, and $$$, is annoying and slow. Okay for all you two-fingered typists, but not a viable replacement for my BB’s keypad, nor my laptop’s.
Glare on the board because I am outside, but that would be the case with laptop, so no black marks. It will offer to fix a misspelled word, and automatically caps words at the beginning of a sentence. It will not allow me, however, to start a sentence with a lower case word, so I cannot properly spell iPad at the beginning of a sentence. It is quite sensitive, so when my bad hand drops too closely to the keypad, I get this: lklki.
Kindle update: just now reading the directions; looks easy; screen is easy to read and I am getting no glare holding in same position as iPad. Looks like great for just reading, but I still just want only ONE device: phone, computer, camera, eReader.
Convention starts tomorrow; the Kindle will be popular.
Took me at least four times longer to write this and when I just typed “longer” incorrectly, it gave me “salinger.” Interesting.
