iPad: A Quick Intro

We were lucky enough to have a good friend pick us up an iPad on her vacation to the States and I thought I would do a quick video sharing how we’re already using it.

A Quick Look At The iPad from Rob & Lauren on Vimeo.

If you’re viewing that video in HD my apologies for the interference pattern on the screen. I assure you the iPad display is crisp and bright!

Obviously this is still a very raw product. There aren’t a ton of apps out yet, though over the next year I’m certain we’ll see a ton of incredibly indispensable ones come out.

Right now we’re using it primarily for

This device is the beginning of a whole new way of looking at business and life management. While it isn’t (or rather it’s apps aren’t) totally optimized for the cloud yet, it’s only a matter of time.

  1. Wow Rob, this is actually the best review of of an iPad I've seen. I think it would be great for showing photos to people. I've always liked the way photos look on screens better than printed, aside from the lack of resolution, but my eyes aren't that good anymore haha.

  2. I think the nice thing with the ipad, on top of all the obvious, is having access to the full interface of Tave on the go.

  3. Excellent review Rob. I was lucky enough to score an iPad a few days after it came out in the U.S – like you a friend picked it up for me. I've already used it during potential client consults and couldn't image a consultation without an ipad anymore! Sign up for a U.S iTunes account and you'll have access to a TON more apps than what's available in the canadian iTunes store.

  4. Thanks for the comments guys!

    @Noah – I kind of want to show everyone photos on it. It looks cool, but it's also a lot of fun.

    @Nick – Having access to Tave is a great idea! We only have a wi-fi version of the iPad right now so until I hack my iPhone to do tethering it's just easier to use a computer.

    @Erik – I can't wait to use this with clients! I also opened a US iTunes account. If anyone reading this is wondering how to start a US iTunes account you can check out the following link http://www.ipadincanada.ca/tutorials/early-canadian-ipad-owners-how-to-create-a-us-itunes-account/

    you forgot to add babysitting to your list of uses ;) xox.

  6. Hey – I just filmed my first iPad instruction tutorial using a Canon 5D Mk II DSLR, and noticed I have the same interference pattern on the screen that you have on your video…. Any advice on what to do to get rid of it when filming…

  7. @ Craigo – When you can do is use the live view on the 5D mk II to zoom into 10x and slowly move the focus back and forth. You'll see the when it's perfectly in focus the interference patten results, but if you move it slightly out of focus (just slightly) the interference pattern disappears. Hope that helps!
