This is really true, unfortunately. I hate that everything is going in 'one direction' but it really seems like Apple got their cards right when they made everything so dang user friendly. I avoid an iPhone like the plague, but when I finally got it, I felt like an idiot for having avoided it for so long! I'm no computery person, so the windows phones where you can endlessly customize your interface and setup are neat, but I realized I honestly don't care about that.
Back on topic(ish): I'm in the market for an iPad right now...several of our texts are available as ebooks called PageBurst books. These seem like a really neat way to utilize technology and hopefully get into a good groove for studying/notetaking, etc. (if you haven't heard of them, here's a link to a video from their website...they can explain them better than I can! http://www.elsevieradvantage.com/art...p?pageid=10701
My dad's a physician at a teaching hospital, and says just about EVERY student/resident/new doctor on staff has an iPad and uses it almost exclusively for write-ups for patients, and just in general. So they offered to get me an iPad for getting accepted (and for like every holiday from now until I graduate, haha).
I'm trying to decide whether the wifi is adequate or whether the 3G/4G access is pretty crucial. Anyone have any suggestions on that? I mean, honestly, where will I ever be where there is no internet connection....studying, I would probably always have access to some WiFi (at a house/the school/a coffee shop), right?
