In late June I purchased an iPad, a 32 gigabyte 3G model. I figured that I would use it with clients to go over inspection reports and pictures taken during the my Home Inspections.
Now, I must confess, it was kind of a Mother's Day gift to my wife......and a tool for my business. I use it occasionally for looking at inspection photos and have never used it for going over a report even though I could if needed. Looking at the pictures is much more fun that looking at a report.
One of the biggest reasons I bought an iPad is so that I could blog and comment on Active Rain from places more comfy that my desk. Places like the couch, or bed or the occasional coffee shop. That never happens though because I can't.
When using the iPad or iPhone you are not able to comment on blog posts or create a your own blog post. I looked into this after my wallet was $700.00 lighter. I found some information online that explained the problem. Apparently the iPad cannot process the contentEditable web function.
In my mind this is a terribly fatal flaw. I want (or wanted) to be mobile and be able to act and react to the current of the day. As it stands right now my only time in the "rain" is late in the evening after the days dust has settled. I had hopes that that would have changed with the iPad.
So, Apple, or Active Rain or Somebody please help me Stop Hating My iPad....and Flash support would be nice to have too!
Thanks for checking in and have a great evening,
