I still have the original iPad. You know, the one without a camera or a retinal screen display or any numbers behind the name. The OS stopped updating around 5.2; the latest iOS is somewhere in the 7.0 range.
I had to decide if I was going to invest in another iPad or if I was going to keep the older tech. Or (gulp) switch to an Andriod based system. There were a few things to consider.
One of the rules in my house, between hubby and I, is that we have to validate the necessity of a purchase when the dollars exceeds a certain amount. See, both of us have hobbies that the other doesn’t exactly understand. So before making a purchase of a gadget — be it tablet or fishing locator — options have to be explained to the non-purchasing spouse. This prevents the purchase of a gadget that is really cool sounding but with unknown features.
Since it was my rule, I can’t exactly complain about it.
So now I’m stuck trying to figure out why I need an iPad instead of a tablet. And when I start to look at the options, I’m kinda wondering myself – is it because I’m comfortable with an iPad? I have everything backed up and can simply transfer it all. But do I need everything? Or is everything a habit?
For those of you with android-based tablets, what do you think? Is it just as good as an iPad?
