Journaling: My iPad is my primary interface in the world of information, entertainment, education, music, travel, art, etc. It’s amazing how much I do with it. It’s never far from my side. I read on it, I interact with family and friends, I get my news on it, I read books, watch movies & TV, listen to music, play games, create, surf the web, shop and work on it. It’s a magical device.

Journaling: In 2012, I am not a big newshound. We do not get any newspapers or magazines right now. I am happy to ignore the nightly news for the most part. We do set the DVR for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The colbert Report, and Piers Morgan. My husband also watches The Late Show with David Letterman however this year I have grown bored with David Letterman. We also watch Saturday Night Live together,while I DVR for myself Oprah’s Next Chapter and her show Super Soul Sunday. My husband likes Real Time with Bill Maher. As for our online resources, my husband checks yahoo news headlines, and will yell out certain headlines now and then. We both have Facebook accounts, however my husband hardly uses his, and I have cut way back on my usage of Facebook. I also have my Twitter account, and I know many people get their news via Twitter, however, I know I would not ever get anything done if I checked my Twitter several times a day. I post to my Twitter several times a week, and then quickly leave Twitter before I get sucked in. I do get a lot of information from Pinterest, pertaining to D.I.Y., fashion, scrapbooking, trends, etc. Any other information comes via email, and face conversations with friends and family. I have not yet succumbed to a smart phone, iPod, iPad, or Kindle Fire. Yet! The tempation to get an iPad is getting ever greater.
