it's all in the way one would use it. like if a company provides iPads to work on, it's reasonable. if you want an e-reader device that's more than an e-reader, it's no biggie to have one. but nowadays, it isn't worth it since iOS 4.0 + let's devices that aren't the iPad have the iBookstore installed for free (plus books available for purchase). plus the new iPod touch has 2 cameras so it's way better than the iPad in the field of point&shoot pictures and video recording.
kick him in the balls and tell him to get his own shit to look at porn in the shower with wut an ass... even tho regular iPod touches r way better I dropped mine in the toilet three days ago and now the only thing it won't do is play a7x (of course my favourite band) I think it's mad at me for treating it badly... :
Take one of his non-waterproof belongings (eg. laptop, mobile phone) and take it into the shower, then give him his excuse. Alternatively, throw it out the window and use shatter-proof instead of water-proof as an excuse. But it's just an iPad. It runs Apple software. You're better off without one, but I would be pissed if I was stupid enough to want something made by Apple and my dad did that. Also, Rucka Rucka Ali > Any other band/artist previously said or will be said. Period.
Wow. Just wow. Also, you could tell him that a) it's obvious, and b) there's probably something in the instructions somewhere that states it's not waterproof.
Fair enough, Zeb, I just imagined there would be some instructions somewhere, as most electrical equipment I've ever bought has come with something. (Maybe the surge from the water damage broke the online one :P) I also think that electrics and water is common sense. I also remember being taught that at primary school.
LOL! Yep - it did occur to me that the instructions might have been fried along with the iPad. Hmm - I wonder if they're actually included on the machine itself, or if Apple run with the 'it's intuitive' thing just one step more and make you download the instructions only after clicking on an admission that you're not hip enough to just understand it right out of the box? You're a thousand percent right though - the primary reason for not doing this is because it's completely obvious that you shouldn't take electronics into the shower with you.
Oh, and in #207, I should have said "...bizarrely, you don't get instructions..." It sounded like I was disagreeing with you, when that wasn't the case. I'd hope they'd at least have that basic 'don't throw it in the fires of Mt Doom or run it through with a sword' warning leaflet that is the first thing you throw out when you open the box.
what the fuck can you do with an iPad in the shower? besides.....aaaahhh I know lmao
If he wasnt your dad i would tell you to punch him in the face and sue if he refused to pay. but since he IS your dad, just steal his credit card. :)
