The Memoirs of Jim 'ung

El-Eh?

El-Eh?

I took advantage of the nice weather (blue skies, like every day since I arrived) and spent the day on the beach at Santa Monica.

 I rather enjoyed the sea air and that.

Almost makes up for the fact that americans don’t get a 4 day weekend for easter :'(

I stopped by the Apple store on the 3rd St Promenade to have a peek at the iPad which went on sale today. The chap in the shop said that they had a queue all the way down the road before the shop opened. I can believe it, the crowd around the iPad tables were ridiculous. In short, to me the iPad was typically Apple-like; slick, good looking, full of little ‘wow, neat’ moments, with just a hint of style over substance. The iBook app was pretty cool, the presentation is very nice and it looks like it could be a real contender for more traditional e-ink readers like the Kindle. I don’t know if I’d consider getting one when they are released in the UK, though.

The trusty Polaroid SE 670 AF has had a workout this trip.

I’m looking forward to trying out my new Olympus OM-10 when I get back.

Lots of other things need posting about, but I’m sure you know that already.

Jim.
