A couple of weeks ago, my husband bought an Apple Ipad 2 from our local AT&T store, thinking that it would be very useful in his business, specially if he goes out of town. It would be very convenient for him to check his emails, read the news in the web, and check the market in a bigger screen, rather than reading it from his iPhone. But that is not the only purpose on why he bought this doodad. He wants to put all his files, photos, music and videos in this gadget since it got a huge memory available. Sad to say, he had a hard time doing those stuff. Reading the manual, and researching the internet on how to do stuff are such a pain. Here are some things that he doesnt like about it..
– First thing, it doesnt support adobe flash players. Meaning, it doesnt play videos, movies, shows, or even online news, that supports adobe flash player. My husband like to watch the news online, and he was hoping that he can upload some of his fave movies from his laptop, to his iPad. He searched online on how to do it, but eventually got tired, because you need to have an application to do it, and these applications are not free. Darn! nothing is free these days. lol
-2nd. Hubby wants to transfer his photos of his converter catalogue, so he can browse at it easy, and show it to his customers. Sad to say he cant transfer it like he wants to. He was able to transfer it, but he had a hard time deleting them. What he did to make it easier, he downloaded a free application(i cant remember whats the name of the application) that connects your files from PC to the iPad, which he find so cool, cause you dont have to worry about your files being deleted or what.
-3rd I was hoping that it got a USB port or maybe an SD card slot. But none! It dont have any which really surprised me. I guess this ipad is for tethering online then. Its not really that useful for my hubby.
Thats our Review for this piece of doodad. It sure is a great toy, but sad to say, its not very useful to us. Hubby was not so happy about it, that he returned it after a few days of tethering. It sure got a lot of applications to choose from, but of course they are not free. Hubby just decided to get a wifi hotspot instead and will use his Laptop, thats been sitting in his office untouch. lol.
