From the iPad

There’s a lot of new technology coming out these days that we feel pressured to buy, but really don’t need. Will our lives improve by a voice controlled television set? Do we really need a robot vacuum cleaner? The neighbors have one, so I need to get one too…

If you’re looking to splash out on something “new”, you should get an iPad. Go on, you artist, treat yourself to this great tool! They’re not even that expensive anymore. I think it’s a great way to sketch. Get yourself a stylus (Wacom) and just doodle away. Unlike an old fashioned sketchpad and pen, you’ve got an undo option so mistakes are easily corrected. And it’s just great fun! Downside? No pressure sensitivity. Just give these Apple peeps a year or so and I’m sure it’s gonna get sorted. Technology moves fast.
