Daughter Vanita was in town on business so we spent the day (Saturday) chatting over tea and a sushi lunch.
Like her father, Vanita is into computer gadgets. So we talked computers and iGadgets. On our tour around Tucson, we were close to an Apple store so we decided to do a hands on test of the mini iPad. Our unanimous conclusion was that we preferred the large iPad. Maybe Vanita could afford another iGadget, but I couldn't. Actually, I really don't need -- or want -- another.
That was the situation until Vanita pulled out her Kindle Paperwhite. Big improvement over the previous Kindle eReaders. With my impressions and Vanita's pitch comparing it to previous Kindles, I had to have one. Upon returning home that evening, I ordered a Kindle Paperwhite. The popularity of the device means it is on back order. However, it will arrive in time for Christmas. A great gift to myself.
Looking forward to reading in bed without hurting myself. Using the heavy iPad as an eReader is dangerous.
A visit from Vanita. A new toy on its way. Life is great.
