Warning don't use windows 8 its to good

I was sold on an iPad 2 before I left for the BUILD conference last week. I told my friends I’d get one. I had gone through all the pros and cons. “I couldn’t wait” to, all of a sudden, be upgraded to a new level coolness.

Then, on a small one hour break from BUILD when I couldn’t find any interesting sessions from an end user point of view, I walked into a BestBuy some 2 miles from the Anaheim Convention Center.

I was directed to the iPad 2 stand and played with the device for 5 minutes while an employee was telling me how this product basically sells itself, most probably thinking that I was an easy sell, since I had declared from the start that I was going to buy one.
