I sit here on a stool in my kitchen writing this blog on my iPad. My computer is only 6 steps away in my living room, but I need to be in the kitchen because I'm waiting for the water to boil for my perfect hard boiled eggs (if you haven't already read it I wrote a blog on how to make the perfect hard boiled eggs - look for it below). If I go into the living room I will inevitably get distracted working on my computer and will miss the water boiling. This is an exact science so there is no room for error (seriously, read my blog and you will understand).
IPad use #1: I brought my iPad into the kitchen with me to pull up my egg blog and make sure I was putting in the right amount of salt. It is SO much more convenient than trying to find then printout I made or logging into my computer to read it and then coming into the kitchen. I was able to pull it up in less than 30 seconds while I filled the pot with water.
IPad use #2: I realized while i was standing there waiting for my water to boil that i had my iPad right next to me and could be checking my email while I waited! It was so brilliant that I immediately started writing this blog.
Next time I am stuck in the kitchen you can bet that I will have my iPad with me. Maybe I will play a game, check FaceBook, read the news, check out a recipe, who knows. The possibilities are endless!
