Adam Douglas So I've been given an iPad. I pretty much hate tablets, but propping this thing up as an email terminal is quite liberating. One less window I have to have open. Very expensive for an email terminal but I must say the battery life is actually very impressive. This thing just will not die.
🦾 Lucian Marin I almost bought an iPad last week. But changed my mind since it'll probably get dust just like my iPod classic. Instead I'll look forward to the new iPhones.

Adam Douglas It is a bit annoying to have zero command line and so on. Panic's Transmit and Prompt make it easy to manage servers on the go (less cumbersome than a laptop/chromebook but bigger screen than a phone). If the iPad shipped with full OS X, it'd possibly be better--but then why would one get an iPad and not a MacBook? It's weird; part of the iPad's charm lies in its being crippled. The rigidity of iOS actually streamlines your activity, you don't waste time trying to customise every little detail.
