When Helen and Frankie got stuck in New York due to the Icelandic volcano and missed my birthday, they decided to buy me a small present.

Much to my surprise they got me a top of the range iPad. I knew it was good, but not this good! Web browser .. access to my personal email ... direct and easy access to works email (including calendar) ... games console .. HD video player ... picture frame ... internet radio ... catch-up tv on demand ... ipod ... kindle book reader ... and that's only after spending a couple of days playing with it. Makes Microsoft look pretty amateur in comparison. 10 hours constant use and looks the part in the living room.
