Apple’s iPad: The blogging cyclist’s dream machine

In Bicycling on January 27, 2010 at 11:50 am

Slim and weighs next to nothing

As a blogger and cyclist, we’ve been waiting a long time for this. Our MacBook is just a little too big and bulky to be comfortable in our Chrome Ivan, even if there is a separate waterproof compartment for it, and even if that’s what we’ve been doing the past few years. Our iPhone on the other hand is too small to type anything but tweets on.

The iPad has what looks to be a roomy touch keyboard built in. We’ll see how we like it. But the clincher is a dock with a full-size keyboard.

Combined with all the other stuff going on, including all those apps, this is what we’ve been dreaming of…and more.

  1. It looks like a fun machine, but I need OSX to run Photoshop and Lightroom, so I’ll continue to schlep around my 13″ Macbook Pro.


  2. Since it doesn’t have the built-in camera, I’m curious how you would get photos from the road into the iPad for blogging without the laptop? Seems you would still need an iPhone to transfer photos using bluetooth.

  3. Why i don’t want a iPad :
    iPad is so ugly !
    iPad doesn’t support flash !
    iPad doesn’t have camera !
    iPad doesn’t support multitasking !
    iPad have a 4/3 screen…
