When I was racing each sunday I would head down to Wells Ave. To hit the Boston Road Club training races. Was there recently and am happy to report that the races are still going strong.

iPad still interesting?

August 5, 2010

Well after some time with everyday use the iPad is still interesting. The biggest ins sue so far has been that many of the apps that are taking advantage of the iPad are not all ready for prime time. I have seen some very good apps and some with more potential than greatness at the moment.

Can you say crash? The biggest issue that I see with many apps is the crash… Now I know Steve would like you to think that everything is smooth but honestly many apps crash. This does make the app marketplace frustrating as there doesn’t seem to be any way to refund a purchase the way the Android store has it’s 24 hour trial deal. So far it is a little hit of miss in terms of finding an app that does has lots of polish. Honestly I have found more games with polish than productivity apps.

With that being said there is still a great deal to like about the iPad. I am starting to believe the analysts that say Apple may have killed off the consumer and small business tablet market already.
