I bought my wife an iPad and I haven't seen her since. 

It's a remarkable Internet appliance.  Especially the Pro version.  Size matters.

As unlikely as it seems, I am  now the owner of an iPad! My daughter's husband brought one out for me when they arrived on holiday yesterday. I thought computers were difficult, but this is something else! However, I did figure out how to connect with my two swamp pop rock radio station, and can now wander the rooms, from kitchen to loo, with music in my head courtesy the Buetooth function that mates with the Bose headphones they gave me last visit!

I'd been given helpful advice by some LuLaians on the matter, about dongles etc., and when I went to see the local IT guy he tried to sell me a radio connector instead, which meant different headphones... that's the world I inhabit which probably explains a lot.

I am alone in the midst of these happy, reasonable voices. All these creatures spend their time explaining, realizing happily that they agree with each other. In Heaven's name, why is it so important to think the same things all together.

Awesome! From one doddering codger to another, I say "Welcome!" I hate nearly all things Apple, but I love the iPad.

For semi mindless fun, download the free game "Cut The Rope"

Nothing can beat LuLa, Rob.

Where else can you find one website that has solved all the essential world problems, such as photos of cats and kittens, silky water, sunsets, rainbows, the rule of thirds, who has the biggest megapixels, the problem or hoax of global warming, the hoax or problem of Trump, and what to do about Isis and Syria.

Why very soon we might even have a solution to the biggest problem of all: Nikon vs. Canon!

MAKE LULA GREAT AGAIN!    :D
