This is a proper #iPad Review – @Mashable take note!
Well I’m pleased to say I didn’t partake in any of that nonsense. Oh no. Being a bonafide social media guru, I was able to get hold of mine last night. In fact, as luck would have it, it came to me totally unprompted, and I bet I paid a lot less than all of you people. Here’s how I purchased my iPad. I was just about to leave the Dog & Duck, having had a few pints of Parson’s Plums when the prawn man came in. I had the usual crab sticks and cockles, and then he started winking at me. “Weirdo” I thought, you’ve never done that before. Then all became clear, he opened the other side of his wicker basket to reveal a brand new iPad. “Fancy it?” he said. Bloody right I fancied it, more so than Dolly the barmaid, who was looking particularly buxom that evening. Anyway, after much bartering I got it off him for £6.99. I virtually skipped all the way home, only stopping for a kebab with extra chili sauce….which I can still taste now.
So here is my review – watch and learn Mashable – and a few pictures as proof that I am not lying.
What I like:
- Battery life is good
- Nice form factor
- Clear screen
- No wires or fiddley keys
What I don’t like (sorry Steve)
- It doesn’t do much
- Where’s the Internet gone?
- I can’t write zeros or “o”s
- No sound
- I can’t print
Other than that it’s fine. Overall I’d give it a 6 out of 10, which may sound harsh…but this, as you can see, is a proper iPad review. I really can’t understand what all the fuss is about to be honest. I heard @WillCooper talking about it on the transistor radio earlier, and some of his “colleagues” (that’s posh for mates) tweeted about it too. Anything for a jolly away for the office eh!
