New iPad

OK, I didn’t need one, but it was time to upgrade. I’ve been using my iPad Air 2 for years (since 2014), and it still functions fairly well. That said, it was showing its age—mostly with speed; Chrome, for example, would take up to ten seconds to launch, then often crash. I use my Kindle Paperwhite to do most of my reading, but it would be nice to have a tablet to read and annotate PDFs and take notes on. Therefore, I updated to a fourth-generation iPad Air in green. I also splurged for the keyboard case and Apple pencil. I should have it on Monday.

Maybe this one will last me another seven years.
