DD gave me the best gift - an iPad mini! I have been wanting an iPod for some time now. I always listen to books on cd during my commute to/from work and borrow them from the library. I've always thought an iPod would be nice to have - I could download audio books from the library website and plug in and listen. DS (ie computer geek) told her I could do the same with an iPad mini, plus have all the other features of a tablet to go with it.....a tablet to read books, access to the internet without having to sit at the computer at my desk, and other apps.
I love my iPad mini! I have had a Nook the past couple of years, which I have used a lot for both reading and accessing the internet while sitting on the couch watching tv. But, the internet on it has been really buggy the past 6 months or so, that I rarely use it for that anymore. The iPad mini is a little bigger than the Nook and the colors are much brighter. All on my own I figured out how to get the library app and download a couple of audio books. I was a happy camper driving to work yesterday :) I downloaded the xfinity app so I could see my emails or even watch tv, if I'm somewhere where I have free wi-fi. I can sit in the living room, watching tv, and pick up my iPad and check Facebook or my email. It's all good! I'm sure I'll find lots of other cool things I like about it too. I love my daughter, LOL.
