As mentioned before, just because you plan on getting a new iPad 3 doesn’t mean you should throw away your broken iPad 2 or iPad 1. Repair prices for the iPad 1 and 2 have been dropping so take some time and get them fixed.
There are many things that you can do to repurpose your old iPad or iPad 2 as seen in this great article I saw on Macworld.com. The article touches base on what you can do with your old iPad including using it as a dedicated e-reader, using it as a point of sale credit card reader, using it as a digital picture frame, or simply just hand it down to a friend or family member. The choice is yours, young Padawan. For example, keeping an old iPad lying around the living room simply for referencing things during conversation can prove invaluable. Heck, during a discussion I had last weekend I learned what exactly makes tonic water “tonic” water using an old gen 1 iPad to look it up! Be prepared to dust off your old black-lights from college if you decide to read this article about tonic water.
Each day that passes gets us closer to Apple’s next big announcement. It will be a good one. Just remember to tune into your live blog of choice as this event will most likely not be streamed live. Personally I’m a fan of Gizmodo’s live blog so you might want to check them out when the time comes. I know I know, it can’t come soon enough but we all must wait.
