It was a few years ago and (as usual), I felt anxious and nervous to be in such close-quarters with another person I barely knew. I tried to calm down and play it cool as the air grew stale and the noises grew noticeably louder but I felt myself losing it as the tip rose and began its journey to enter a space which seems completely ludicrous for any Man to ever enter. Knowing I had no choice at this point; I wiggled around hoping to get comfortable, double-checked the protection, closed my eyes and laid back just praying that it would all be over soon. But before you could say 'I need a drink'- my saving grace appeared in my lap: an iPad.
Did I mention I'm talking about my anxiety for flying? Because I most certainly am!
I love travel but I hate flying. And the first time I was greeted with an iPad and could take my mind off the fact that I was 30K feet in the air by watching movies and playing AngryBirds- I felt much better immediately and almost forgot I was without parachute. From that point on, I knew I needed a Tablet.

However, the iPad isn't really the tablet for me. This is mainly due to the fact that I rarely don't "contribute" when I'm online. I love reading articles as much as the next person but then I want to edit pictures, post a Blog, mess with HTML... things all hard to do on a Tablet with limited Software and your finger guiding your every move.
That is.. until the Windows Surface. From ads before its debut, I determined it the perfect Tablet for me as it has all the slim-functionality that you want from a Tablet but all the capabilities of a Computer as well. Sold, sold, sold! But because I'm a Gal who cares about doling out cash, I was beyond elated to go see it for myself at Washington Square Mall on opening day jusssstt to be sure...

So after my exploratory afternoon lunch-break testing out the Windows Surface- it's safe to say it's offfficially on my Christmas List.
Have you tried the Surface out?
