I’m flying to London today to attend Eurogamer Expo for work (say hi if you see me!). It has been more than several years since I’ve been in the UK. When I was last in the UK, there were no smartphones, iPads, or e-book readers. When I’m on long flights, I typically busy myself with the airline’s in-flight entertainment, sleep, or read something I brought with me. Now that I have my trusty iPad, I have entertainment beyond what the airline provides and beyond what I can stuff into my carry-on luggage. I have downloaded several books to my Kindle app, a few comic books to my DC Comics app, and several games. With my iPad, I probably won’t run out of media, considering both my work and holiday schedules, but if I do run out, I can always download more before I head back to the States. Technology, I like you.
If anyone has any iPad games recommendations or comic book recommendations (Which of DC Comics’s “New 52” are worth reading?), give me a shout on Twitter.
