So, did we mention that Lloyd actually has an iPad now? His ‘kickoff’ donation at the auction was basically paying for his own iPad. Here’s why I’ve decided I really need one – it has voice recognition software. I guess it’s like using the new iPhone and talking to Siri.
Note: you can go back and edit what you say, but I’m going to leave the following unedited so you can see how it comes out. I thought getting a picture of me posting while I was talking to the iPad would be cool, but unfortunately I didn’t plan out what to say, so you just get a bunch of babbling while I’m waiting for the self-timer to go:
Now I’m going to play with it and try to take my picture. I am making this post as I’m talking I’m just talking at the iPad and taking my picture at the same time when it’s done and could have a post and hope my camera took a picture me doing it because I had it on self timer. Okay that first photo really didn’t go as planned no no no like Tracy keep taking the camera for me I don’t want to actually be in the picture. So this is a lot of stupid technology at the same time and likes it when you take it out of the case and I said how you take it out of the case because I didn’t know how to do it. so I guess that’s the end of my post.
After messing with it, now I know how to enter punctuation and speak a little more clearly. I see all kinds of cool applications for making observations about my preschoolers. So, who here thinks Lauren needs her own iPad? You needn’t raise your hands – just vote by mailing me a hundred dollars. (Except you, Deborah – I still owe you money.)
