When Mark & I went to Mexico in 1981, I wanted to buy a toy typewriter to take with me. I couldn't find one & made do with a giant notebook. Now I own that toy typewriter, an iPad that weighs a pound. In 1981, any typewriter that could do what this iPad does was unimaginable.
Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things. ~ Thoreau
that's the iPad feeling, indeed.
I like it & am happy I bought it
but it distracted me for days
