My iPad is so very useful and I enjoy using it because it is so portable. My smartphone is a close second for when I am out.

My iPad is much quicker and I can just pick it up any time and access the Internet, read a book, take/view photos, etc etc.

Up until this week we didn't get any G access via EE, but for some reason, we can now get 3G in half of our house!

We get 4G at home on EE but about once per month it totally cuts off for about a day? Strange and you cannot even phone up EE to complain that's the crazy part

The speed of advance in Technology is incredible. If we could also see only 10 years ago what the smart phones now could do we would be amazed. It will be fascinating to see what technology is like in say 10 or 20 years time let alone if we could in say 100 years. I noticed on Google that it was 100 years ago that the first electric traffic lights were introduced and now Google are testing robotic cars-what next I wonder?
