Old or New | Flash Post 349
Button, the sheer comfort and sense of sharing of my most intimate thoughts come alive when I hold this particular iPad in the span of my left palm and write to my heart’s content.
I have noticed that.
It was gifted to me by Dost because he felt I’d be more comfortable using it in the privacy of our bedroom and not go to the study cum library every time I needed to use the computer. I’ve had this accessory for years now.
And we write our blogpost using this very iPad almost every other day.
The other day, Dost once again gifted me–I am lucky if that’s the reason you are glaring at me– the latest iPad as he felt I’d be even more comfortable using a bigger-sized gadget. This new iPad has been sitting on my side table for a month now but I continue using the old one. I don’t find this strange because of my comfort level with it though it wears a much-used dark grey cover as compared to the bright red coat my new iPad flaunts.
You use your desktop sparingly too, I notice.
My technology phobia is to be blamed. Every time I get either a new IPhone, a new iPad or any accessory for that matter, I take a while to switch from the old to the new! From the old school, I guess! We think hard while deflecting from one material thing to the other, from one life partner to another in the hope we’ll find that illusory love and happiness when it is in our hands to change things around if we seriously want to, not to mention the turn costs we get in politics who, for money, can be bought and sold!
That’s not an uncommon phenomenon: There are quite a few out there who dread crossing over from one iPhone or an iPad to the latest gadget because of their comfort level with the old one. But give the new iPad a chance too. I see it all decked up so you pick it up one day and start using it.
