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.
