my ride on air

boeing, boeing 737-800, journey, playbook, smart phone, tablet

Back home yesterday around 10 PM after 3 days in KL for study tour. It was a busy two days… one study tour in the morning and one in the evening… on both days. Left KK around 11.07 AM after the flight delayed from 10.45 AM.

I did not manage to check-in online coz the system can’t find my particulars when I tried web check-in service at home. So when I check-in at the airport through the check-in kiosk the next day, I was given a random seat at the back which I forgot coz I changed my seat so that I can seat next to my colleague at 27D which is almost at the end of the aircraft.

The aircraft was Boeing 737-800 with the bended wing tip… this 800 series is much quitter, wider and smoother on air compared to the older 400 series. The seats are normal, nothing fance… just the same as my few previous ride on 800 series. But the aircraft I rode back has different seats settings although it is also the 800 series.

The return aircraft seats have LCD at it back, credit card reader and handset for making calls or playing games. The last time I saw this was inside Boeing 777. Unfortunately the system is not functioning… it’s OFF! So I can’t play games with it like the one on 777 I rode before. But I was not that bored during the flight coz I have my tablet and phone to play with… I have lots of apps in my fon and tablet but I played Sudoku most of the time… it’s good to have electronic entertainment gadget for long journey… like PSP or smartphone or tablet… any tablet will do as long it is loaded with playbook apps… well, I was alternately playing and sleeping throughout the flight… which is only two and half hour… 😀

rise of the tablet

iloose, ilost, imac, ipad, iphone, ipod, iwin, netbooks, tablet

Suddenly tablet and netbooks got buried somewhere…

Out of nowhere, the name iPad came into the picture… who have expected they gonna called it iPad?… although it is just a tablet… the same tablet we have been talking many years…

Well, it’s Apple’s tradition… iPod, iPhone, iMac… and now iPad… 😛  and frankly I’m not a fan of Apple’s products… although they are great for graphics thingy…

I’m hoping more from Windows thingy… but Windows thingy are very slow to evolve… they seem to be not growing up… and now, they got eaten by iPad… and soon they might get eaten by iWin… and who knows they might only able to come out with iLoose iLost after that 😛

Anyway, I don’t think iPad gonna make a great hit… mainly because of timing… and economy are bad at the moment… so, hopefully Windows thingy will evolved at the mean time… and come out with something spectacular…
