About a month ago, my wife and I were hiking up a short trail to the top of Mount Mitchell in North Carolina, near the Blue Ridge Parkway. Little side note, it is the highest point east of the Mississippi River at 6,684 feet above mean sea level.
We were walking behind this fellow who was taking photos with his iPad. He spent much of the short hike looking at the screen, holding it in front of his face. So, even though I think it's NOT a feature to have a rear facing camera on a TouchPad, clearly there is at least one guy who needs this feature.
Oh, and I'm sure his arms appreciated having a couple ounces less weight to have to suspend in front of his face. Of course, at that elevation, the gravitational pull is lessened a bit, so the TouchPad might have been feasible to hold...for a few seconds... (Yeah, I'm being sarcastic, let's just pump up our biceps a little more and stop complaining )
Regardless, it was a bit weird to see someone use a tablet in that way. I took a photo of him taking photos using my Pre...but it didn't really turn out, can't hardly see the iPad. I didn't want to anger him by getting a picture close up and having to explain I found his actions humorous. Besides, it was our 25th wedding anniversary celebration trip (away from kids and home) and my wife is much more distracting to me than some guy looking at the world through a 9.7 inch screen.
That reminds me...I think I'll call my wife!
