I love my iPad, and with Apple making a large fortune on the new iPad launch (nearly $2 billion in the first weekend), there are clearly a lot of other people who love the iPad as well. Some people love them too much.
If you’re a pastor who uses an iPad, drift on over to iPad in Ministry. They don’t post often, but when they do, it is usually interesting content.
Here are a list of things I do and don’t do with my iPad:
- I carry my iPad around, but I don’t preach from it. I am too animated when I speak. I’d much rather lose my grip on a $25 Bible than on my $— iPad! (I don’t even want to think about how much I spent on the thing some days.)
- I use only the Apple Smart Cover because that was how Apple designed the iPad to be used. I had a third party black leather case, but ultimately I decided the Zen of the unit without ornamentation was for me.
- I spent the $80 to have the iPad encased in clear plastic – at the kiosk outside of the Apple store – and it is the best investment I made with the thing. I will never use an unprotected iPad again.
- I use four apps more than anything else (Evernote, Logos, Netflix and Facebook) but I have more than 200 apps on the iPad. Why not, right?
I love my iPad, but won’t be upgrading to the new one any time soon.
