kaffyr: 11's profile, the quote re fezzes (Fezzes are cool)
From: [personal profile] kaffyr
What you say about your daughter's iPad usage, and her ability to adjust to a different typing format, doesn't surprise me. The story of how she got the thing is more than a little sad; it sounds like a neat school. (It also doesn't surprise me that folks were liking laptops better. Like your daughter, everyone can - if they absolutely must - adjust to work on or with an inferior tool. It doesn't mean they have to like it.)

I love Googledocs and I do all my personal writing there, because it means I am not limited to writing the same thing on one computer only. However, after I've written something, I generally copy it to my home laptop's hard drive. That gives me a permanent record and allows me to continue with something even if (as admittedly is a vanishingly small possibility) the Google cloud is unavailable. And that has happened at least once within the past year.

I spent a lot of hours in the 1980's getting really good at WordPerfect,

Oh, man, another WordPerfect lover! We were completely a WordPerfect household around here, and used to grumble at the perceived inadequacies of Word. Our problem seemed to be that we were in a tiny minority, and WP simply didn't mesh with Word when we wanted to share documents with the rest of the world. Stupid Word. Now I tend to use Office Libre, which feels a bit more like WP to me, and it has the added benefit of having slightly less chilly relations with Word.
