When Jiajia bought me an iPad for my birthday some years ago I was grateful, but a bit bewildered. I hadn't asked for it, couldn't see much use for it and hated Apple anyway. Since then I've found it more and more useful (still hate Apple, mind you) and was a bit thrown when it suddenly stopped working the other day. Thankfully, a local repair centre managed to replace a burnt out component and it's now up and running again. What do I use it for? JD enjoys watching videos on it and playing some games. Jiajia does all her banking on it. I like to keep up with a dozen podcasts and sometimes for Skype/FaceTime. Recently, I've been using it to read "The Week" which I used to get delivered in paper form until China's postal service went into meltdown and nothing arrived. Now it's just slow download speeds which delay my news.
