Need to muck out the iPad closet

Apparently I’m an iPad video hoarder. Going through and deleting stuff was grueling. But I need to have Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog at my fingertips. And I need to carry Mamma Mia around with me.

Sadly, they had to go to make room for season three of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. (Do they not sell ATV helmets in New Jersey?)

Every once in a while, I pause and wonder at technology. I remember the first show we watched in color (Buck Rogers in the 25th Century). I remember needing to round up three guys to carry in our first big TV. I remember being amused I can lift our current, even bigger TV all by myself. Being able to carry a TV show with me from room to room, and then to my car to watch in the school pick-up line boggles the mind.

    Many years ago, my grandmother bought a portable TV that she could plug into the lighter of the car. The screen was about as big as a man’s palm, and it was black and white and had terrible reception. I think of what a kick she’d get out of the iPad.

    I love this post – SOOO true! And, I have the same things on my iPad.
