Technology — am I ready for “Induction Cooking” and/or the “iPad”?
Both are safe to the touch!
It was suggested that I may be interested in reading this article from New York Times about “Induction Cooking.” I do have a MW/Convection Oven that I like and I’m not ready to buy an induction range yet, but that may be in the “future” — Pros and Cons.
I have several types of iPods (shuffle with headset – no cord, classic, touch). I have been ready for an iPhone, but our area isn’t ready for that technology; thus the iPad may not be for me yet either 😦
I purchased a Kindle a couple of years ago (I did wait for the second generation of the Kindle even with the warnings) — Pros & Cons. I enjoy: being able to connect 3G wireless coverage to the web almost anywhere (not limited to Wi-Fi by using Whispernet), to have the option for it reading to me (if I started reading a book or newspaper and had to travel for a short distance I use the speech option — cool!), the size & weight, the readability of the pages, cheaper price than the hard copies, long battery life, font size options…
I would like it to be “touch friendly” (instead of the controller buttons) & have a light (or backlight). These things may come in the future or I’ll just wait for the 3rd or 4th generation of the iPad … Pros and Cons.
On the MacBook Pro, I’m really glad I now have Parallels instead of BootCamp to use the one Windows program (only when I’m out of town). I was so excited that I could still use the lighted keyboard, “send keys” pull down options, capture part of the screen option (not full screen) and I can toggle between Mac OS & Windows easily…
