Ommwriter How the iPad 2 Became My Favorite Computer My iPad 2 and ZaggFolio, in the press room at IFA in Berlin, September 2011. Can the iPad replace a PC? Ever since Apple announced its tablet nearly two years ago, the Internet has been awash in discussion of this question. Most of it has had a pretty theoretical feel and has gravitated towards conventional wisdom. Whether you can replace your laptop with an iPad is going to depend on what your needs are. I respectfully disagree with Shanklin. This hasn’t been one of those experiments-for-the-sake-of-experimentation in which someone temporarily forsakes a PC for another device in order to write about the experience (like, say, this). If this startles you, I understand. It all started in August. Without the ZaggFolio, I used the iPad mostly for reading and light productivity. (Side note: The ZaggFolio I bought was part of an early production run that was defective–its clasp didn’t shut securely. Blogsy, my go-to iPad blogging app. Okay: The Zagg keyboards are good.

WriteRoom "But if, when it comes right down to it, full screen is your holy grail, and the ultimate antidote to the bric-a-brac of Word, then you must enter the WriteRoom, the ultimate spartan writing utopia."— Virginia Heffernan, New York Times "Unlike practically everything else in our digital lives, WriteRoom's minimalist interface implies a truly flattering proposition: It's you, not the software, that matters."— Jeffrey MacIntyre, Slate "Green text on a blank, black screen, with a square, blinking cursor. "WriteRoom’s minimalist interface also frees you from the nagging urge to fiddle with margins, fonts, and other settings, leaving you with nothing to do but write "It’s a primitive application, to be sure — I suspect completely by design — but it may be just what the doctor ordered if you need to get your head out of your butt and put some words on the page. "A perfectly balanced, indispensable part of any Mac writer’s toolkit

Using the iPad as your main computer Over at Technologizer, Harry McCracken has posted his thoughts on how the iPad 2 has become his favorite computer, and number one device for professional content creation. Something he's been using it for for the last 3 months. With the iPad [...] you can devote nearly every second of your time to the task at hand, rather than babysitting a balky computer. I don’t feel like I’m “using an iPad to write.” I know I gravitate to my iPad for the more mundane stuff like reading emails, looking up information, responding to SMS with iMessages, and writing up this blog post. McCracken, however, uses his iPad 2 with a hardware keyboard and likes it better than his MacBook Air for computing on-the-go because of the built in 3G connectivity and much longer battery life.
