Parisa has been a technology and gadget aficionado since early childhood. She's often been the one her friends and family would go to for technical advice or to learn about new products and applications. Recently, she decided to embrace this passion of hers by returning to school to pursue a graduate degree in Computer Science. Her love affair with the iPad began after numerous visits to the Apple store to experiment with the Wifi-only model when the 3G model had not yet been released. It was "love at first touch" and she decided it would be the perfect gadget for her needs - although she waited for the 3G model to replace her smartphone. Being one of the early adopters of the iPad (after twelve lingering days on the waitlist), Parisa is amazed by the plethora of features packed into the beautiful, lightweight device and looks forward to sharing her knowledge and passion with our readers.
