Extra tablet for dental school: Nook or iPad

You may have noticed that I take my Nook everywhere. It’s in the background of my studying/working/workplace posts. The best money I’ve ever spent- except for the fact that I buy too many books because it’s so easy.

We recently got an iPad and it’s fantastic. If you don’t spend much of your time writing and instead browse (reddit, facebook, the news, magazines), the iPad is perfect. It’s just like a tablet phone, only much much bigger. I found this from our old pile of Newsweek covers- from April 2010. Remember when Steve Jobs first unveiled the iPad and everyone was confused about just what it was supposed to be?

Although my nook is great, you can only go the Barnes and Nobles market with its internet connection. There is no personal storage cloud where I can upload and download freely from my computer to the nook. So I rooted my nook following these instructions from lifehacker.


It’s great that I can go back into the Nook mode if I want to use my nook for its original reading purpose. The E-ink technology makes the screen difficult for scrolling but now I can check my email, go online, and read the news on my nook in a pinch. I still have my laptop for the Youtube videos and amoeba pictures but I love that the nook has so much battery power and doesn’t strain my eyes.

  2. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for first-time blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

  3. I almost never comment, but i did some searching and wound
    up here "Extra tablet for dental school: Nook or iPad". And
    I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it look like some of the remarks appear as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I'd like to follow everything new
    you have to post. Would you list of every one of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin
