Oprah loves the iPad!


Guess what’s Oprah’s No.1 Favorite Thing? YES, it’s the iPad!

While the iPod had made it to her Favorite Things a few years ago, this is the first time an Apple product is on the top of the list. Oprah said the iPad is the”best invention of the century”!

And we all know Oprah loves to share her favorite things. I am jealous of the audience, who each got an iPad and a 2012 Volkswagen Beetle with VW paying taxes on all the 275 cars!


Dang! That’s a pretty sweet deal. My jaw just dropped not for the iPad but for Volkswagen Beetle.

Last time Oprah gave a way a free vacation and a Motorola Defy for the audience, and I thought that was a good deal. Apparently, AppleGirl and I need to make a trip to the taping one day and try our luck.

Heck, if I got an iPad I could at least sell it at a profit 😉

Okay, so I have to say this, out of all the things that you can do on an iPad Oprah is hooked onto scrabble? Go figure I guess, I mean scrabble and working out on a treadmill doesn’t seem very enticing to me.  In an hour and 20 mins I can run 7- 8 miles and entertain myself iPad free 🙂

Best Rugged Phone

If you’re in the market for a rugged phone, you’ll be interested in the Motorola Defy releasing on November 3rd for $99 on T-Mobile. The Defy is built to “defy” the elements so it’s water resistant, dust proof and scratch resistant.

It’s an Android device running 2.1 (Eclair) and since it’s a Motorola device it sports Motoblur as an overlay on top of Android. The hardware specs are not too shabby but not the latest and greatest. It has a 800 MHz processor only but it does have a 5 mega pixel camera and LED flash. It also has a 3.7 inch Gorilla glass display. Honestly, for the price you’re getting your money’s worth plus more.

Check out the video below, it’s proof that the Defy is definitely water resistant and if you’re a klutz like me that’s a big plus. With this phone you’ll be pretty much worry free.

On a side note, the Defy should do fairly well on the market since Oprah endorsed it and gave it away on her show.
