On the subway the other day I saw someone reading a comic book on his iPad. I can't deny it, I felt incredibly jealous. Not only do I not have an iPad, but I certainly do not have the app that lets you read comic books. It seemed really cool.
Yes, technology lust had reared its sleek head. I saw it, and I want to have it. Funny how that works. Watching a TV commercial about it wouldn't have elicited the same response. I seem to have some will power where TV is concerned.
Knowing that I really shouldn't be investing in the iPad (I like how the word investing makes it seem more worthwhile) I probably have to avoid the iStore with every fibre of my being. It is definitely a trap. Definitely a trap. What a fantastic trap.
I guess there will be a day when all comics will be digital and won't be released in paper form. That might actually be okay--probably play havoc with the collector market, but what else is technology for.
With enough memory, I could probably load every comic book ever made into the iPad and carry them around with me all the time. That would be cool.
