What’s all the hype about the new iPad?

So what is all the hype about the iPad? I have been hearing about it for the past few months but I didn’t really know what it was or what it can do. Then I found this video on youtube and I was blown away. Honestly I am not one to keep up with all the newest technological fads so I really was amazed when I saw this. It’s just so mind boggling to me how one small piece of technology can do so many different things. It’s even more amazing to think about the geniuses who came up with this idea, and the geniuses who found a way to actually make this piece of technology. It’s just so inspiring and makes you think that you can do anything. If you have a dream and a vision, you can make it a reality!

It’s just amazing to think how far we have come. When we went to the moon in 1969, the huge computers it took to do it were about equal in power to modern pocket calculator! And now we have technology like the iPad! It’s crazy when you think about how much technology has grown and expanded, even in the last ten years! Along with all this new technology, there are so many new ways you can reach people. There are so many options when it comes to getting stories out there, and getting people informed. We just did an assignment for a social media news release this week, and this assignment opened up my eyes with all the different media outlets there are. As writers, whether you want to be a journalist, or even if you are someone who enjoys blogging, we need to take advantage of all the technology available to us. The world and technology is constantly changing. We can’t let this intimidate us though. There are so many opportunities that there never were before, so we just need to embrace them, and use everything given us to change the world for the better!

  1. I dislike Apple, but I’ll admit, the technology has come a LONG way. I always watched Star Trek when I was younger, and they had these huge bleeping, shiny, computer things, and today’s cell phones and ipads put them to shame. It’s quite sad actually…

  2. I just posted a review about the iPad a few hours ago. The review is from CNET.com, if you’re interested in checking out more information on iPads or other technology. I’d recommend checking reviews before you or anyone else you know buys anything these days, because usually with new technology there comes a lot of problems with newer models.
    The iPad is supposed to be the stage between iPods and laptops and seems to be more of an attempt to move technology in that kind of direction. It is pretty incredible how far we’ve come in terms of what devices are capable of these days. I can’t even imagine where things are going to end up in 20 years.
