    I use my ipad2 more than my desktop computer. What is wonderful for quilters is that you can download tutorials on them and watch them in your sewing room. Watch the video, pause, try the technique. I set my iPad up on my sewing machine and I'm all set to play. The iPad doesn't take up much space. This device has made such a difference in my life!

    I love my IPad. My desktop crashed and I bought an IPad and use it all the time. You can use it where ever there is a wireless network and it is extremely portable . Some of the magazines that you subscribe to can be downloaded to the IPad and accessed where ever you happen to be located. It is portable and easy to use especially if you have an I phone. They share information, photos, emails ,Facebook back and forth and are easier to see than on a screen the size of a phone. Plus your photos appear on both devices. LOVE IT !!

    I use a laptop and my Kindle Fire - thinking about an ipad but just beginning my search. I use my kindle for most things, reading (I have read way more books that ever in the past year), email, games, videos or any tv episode I wish to rewatch. It does require a hot spot/wireless tho but is still my handy go to while waiting for the laptop to gear up.
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    I don't miss what I never tried! My Apple laptop is as hi-tech as I need. I can unplug it and take it to my Lazy Boy (one I sit in, not one I birthed) as a lap warmer if I feel the urge to get fancy. LOL But I'm not dissing those who are enjoying the tech revolution.

    LOVE Facetime! You use the person's e-mail account so it's not a "phone call" - but it's a live video feed with a friend. Our family is in England and we use it a LOT to see them. Our Hannah was able to "introduce" us to her 2 year old (whom we haven't seen since she was born) and when hubby went over there she KNEW who he was and instantly called him Grandpa. Warmed his heart to see his only grandchild recognize him and call him grandpa immediately.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    My house is a techie house, guess that's why we live in Silicon Valley.

    2 - 17" laptops
    2 - 15" laptops
    1 - 11" Macbook
    3 - iPhones
    3 - iPod touches
    1 - Nook
    1 - Kindle

    and then my husband bought me an iPad last year for Christmas. I do use it for many things but one of my favorites is putting pictures and movies on it for when I travel. My grandmother, bless her 92 yr old mostly blind heart, can see the pictures on it of my kids and the battery life is really good. Stream movies for 10 hours without a charge.

    It's not overly light for toting around in your purse but I am working on a totebag to make that a bit easier for me.

    tracibug, how do you stream for 10 hours without a charge? PM me if you like. We are going on vacation and won't have TV. The nights are long and the days will be cold, so this would help. Thanks!
