First, let me start out by saying I have an iPod Touch. In addition to all my other toys.
Thus, I found that there wasn’t anything I wanted to do with an iPad, that I couldn’t already do on any of my devices.
I found it big and clunky, and I don’t think that the iPod2 is going to be any better.
I did find it easier to read a magazine on it, but I can do that with one of my netbooks. Or a laptop, or a desktop. And only ONE magazine, since I have a kindle and that magazine doesn’t come on the Kindle.
I like my netbooks much better than I like the iPad, because they have better keyboards. If I don’t want a keyboard, I’m back to my Windows Phone 7, or my iPod.
There is an interesting app for dog agility for the iphone and other devices. It is expensive, crashes, though that seems to have been fixed and extremely inflexible.
I was going to write an app for the Windows Mobile phone, but I’m finding that One Note works tons better.
Here’s what I do….
When I get any type of correspondence in relation to an upcoming trial, I send it to a One Note Notebook folder called upcoming trials. On the day of the trial, I take a picture of each of the maps with the camera and put all of a single’s days runs information on one One Note Notebook page. At the end of the trial, I get trial results from the secretary and again, send it to the One Notebook.
I move everything from the upcoming trial into the completed trial section and when I’m done I have all the information needed.
I got an email from an engineer I had met last year, she is involved in FIRST Texas, and told me that they were looking to get grants to 6 North Texas Teams for FIRST Tech Challenge. I didn’t realize we would have to compete on April 16th though.
We’ve had the kit for 1 1/2 weeks and in that time, we have an object that rolls and that I can drive. I’ve had several kids that come in on a regular basis.
My next goal is to get the kids how to figure out how to drive the robot. Wish my furniture luck!
Actually I don’t have much real furniture in the room.
