Do we really need an i-Life ?

Steve Jobs, the man who created Apple brand. The man who gave the world iOS based devices. Today, we are living in the world of i-applications and it is increasing day by day.

iPhone,iPod Touch and iPad are the market banging products. We adore these devices. They are amazingly sophisticated and advanced. There is no doubt in their demand. I’d say that the iDevices have become a kind of status symbol. If you are using a Symbian OS, there is no comparison. Yes, the iOS is advanced but does it really mean that one must own that?

Apple iDevices

Anyways, iPhone and iPod Touch are reasonable to be owned. But when you have a nice laptop, do you really need to buy an iPad? From 2010 to till date we have seen total 3 generations of iPad, they are very nice.

When we get up in the morning, we complete the routine, check mails and go to the work or university. If needed, we access the internet through the laptop carried with us and while returning home we shut down it and head to the home. This is a normal life. Now what is an iLife? here we go – We get up in the morning, open the iPad, switch on the music and complete the routine. We step out of home, having an iPad in the hands, surfing while walking and throughout the time we reach our destination, we are immersed in the iPad. We take out the iPad in the recesses or during regular intervals and keep surfing or chatting. In the evening, while returning to the home, the same reverse events occur. We step into he home and get fresh. Even while having dinner, iPad accompanies our dining table and does not leave us until we go to the bed.

What we loose in iLife? We loose the morning breeze, the surrounding people and the communication.

If we have a laptop, we’d never use it walking down the streets and never take out without any important work. We don’t loose any moment of life which is worth living. iPad like tablet computers seize the present moments.

So, think before buying, understand the requirements. If you really require the iPad, own it but don’t be a iHuman to just feel proud of having an iPad.

By the way, Apple has sold approximately 17 million iPads till date, means if you are buying it to show off, remember 17 million people are already showing off! You will be the 17 M+ 1 .Winking smile


“I end up not buying a lot of things, because I find them ridiculous.”

– Steve Jobs  (The Independent, 2005)
