    Why yes. I did buy them. All three as a matter of fact. And even if you're living in a fish bowl, they're absolutely brilliant! :yes:

    As far as I'm concerned, they're more than worth the price I paid for them ($9.99 each). Quite frankly, how they (Apple) can squeeze so much functionality into an app they're only charging $9.99 for is a point of amazement for me. Adobe should take a lesson from Apple although that's not likely to happen. :unsure:

    Oh, and BTW, the "Ping" application that I bought for the iPad. After chatting with Josh this morning, I've had a bit of an epiphany about it. I really believe it would be more useful on the iPhone rather than the iPad. If someone wants to chat with me and I'm out and about, I'm far more likely to have my iPhone with me rather than my iPad. Additionally, with my iPhone, I've got the cellular network to backup my connection which even if I had my iPad out with me, unless there's a Wi-Fi hotspot available, I wouldn't have network connectivity.

    Of course, if my objective is to NOT be available, then I suppose it makes sense to have it on the iPad! :laugh2:

    Can I justify the cost of an ipad just to play Angry Birds in HD?

    Hmmm... probably not. And the reviews of the iPad version in the app store claim that it's just the iPhone version blown up to a bigger size.
    Not really HD. :thumbsdown:

    But then again, I haven't actually bought it so I can't tell you. :unsure:

    Can I safely assume that means you like it? :unsure:

    I'd really be surprised if you didn't!
