A New Toy

At around midnight last night something amazing happened (get your minds out of the gutter!) and it had nothing to do with the Hubby. Well it had a little to do with him but... let me explain.


Since the hubby bought my Macbook Air I have been an Apple girl all the way. I have an iPhone 5, an iPad 4 and my Macbook. In my office is the iMac too and there is nothing on this earth that could ever make me want to go back to using Windows. It's just not going to happen. The same thing goes for my phone, nothing is going to make me want to change to an Android phone, I had those things for years and was always jealous of the Hubby and his iPhone.



The thing that Apple do well is considering user experience and making it a priority. Anything you think you may want to do with an iPhone they have thought of and come up with an elegant and simple way of allowing you to do it. The apps on the app store are awesome and all run well and they can't interfere with each other and almost everything is simple to use (a bonus for me!).



There's one thing that annoys me about the iPad though and given what I do, it's a biggy. I write a blog and I read blogs. Lots of them. Most of the time I want to comment on said blogs and maybe share them too. This is where the iPad falls down. I have tried and tried (and tried) to get along with the iPad while reading blogs and constantly having re-input my comments because they keep disappearing but with adding more blogs to my reading list and them adding up every day I decided I needed an alternative.


Enter the Nexus 7. Now let me explain that I am not going to rave about how awesome the Nexus 7 is - after all I've already said that I'm not an Android fan. However the one thing that the Nexus 7 can do is allow me to comment on all blogs whenever I choose. Last night, around dinner time, I decided to borrow the hubby's Nexus 7 that he uses for work (occasionally) and test drive the blog commenting. By the time it was charged and updated I decided to wait until I was in bed to read blogs. So at midnight I picked up the Nexus 7 and began reading through a few blogs where I'd got behind and tried commenting. To my amazement it worked first time. First. Time. No reentering, no disappearing text. It just worked.


Being an Apple girl this kind of goes against all that I believe in but the Nexus 7 has been added to the list of devices that I can't do without. Admittedly it will sit on my bedside table and only be used for reading blogs when I'm not at the computer but I have found it's purpose and that makes me happy. It means I can keep loving the iPad, I don't have to abandon my iPhone and most of all I get to use a new toy!



What toys do you have in your house? Are there any you don't have that you'd love to receive?

    1. Macs are awesome once you get used to them and trust me, you'll NEVER want to go back!

  2. Win, win! I tend to do most commenting on my PC, though I use my iPhone, too (my favourite toy!) and it can be a little temperamental! #MMWBH

    1. Yes the iPhone can be temperamental when trying to comment. It's always really easy on the Mac but I'm not always at home so I needed an alternative. :) Thanks for stopping by x

  3. Hurray! I try to comment on my phone all the time and it goes wrong 80% of the time. Very frustrating. I used to use my husband's ipad for commenting and blog reading, we fell out majorly too. I only just got a macbook but because I have used windows my entire life. We are just getting to know each other now. We fought a bit the first few days, as any new friend/toy does. lol

    1. I remember my first meeting with my macbook, I was in awe but it was really frustrating at first because it was quite different. Once you get used to it though and you happen to come across Windows again you'll wonder why on earth you didn't change before! :) Thanks for stopping by and commenting. x

  4. I do all my commenting on the computer because it never seems to wrong on my Ipad. Very frustrating as I do most my reading with my Ipad.

    1. Until I tried out the Nexus 7 I had to bookmark all the blog posts I wanted to comment on so that I could come back later when I was at the computer. This didn't always work out though. Finding this new toy is far better! :) Thanks for commenting xx

  5. I couldn't do anything blog related with my iPhone but was apple all the way. I recently upgraded to the LG G2 android phone and I hate to admit it but I don't even need my laptop anymore

    1. Huh, an apple to Android convert eh? That doesn't happen very often. But hey, if you like it and you don't need your laptop anymore then why not! I'm not sure I could do without my iPhone to be honest! Hope that LG G2 continues to work out great for you. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. xx
