Ludacris: iPad Favorite Gadget
“I’m definitely addicted to the iPad,” he said. “Hands down. No question.”
In an interview with CNN at the VIP suite of the Aria hotel during CES 2011 in Las Vegas, Ludacris talks about his tech geek side and his new “Bentley-inspired and amazingly loud” headphone (which Ludacris uses with his iPhone). Plus his favorite gadget and his opinion of the best invention of 2010.
On the topic of his favorite gadget, Ludacris: “The iPad would be my favorite gadget, of course. If you don’t count these headphones. I don’t know, would headphones be considered a gadget?”
Is Ludacris an Apple Guy? “Definitely, I’m an iPhone and iPad guy. iPad, hands down. Of the year 2010, I feel like the iPad — I don’t think anybody can tell me different — I think that was pretty much the best invention, the best gadget out of 2010.”
His favorite App is Word with Friends [iPhone, iPod App and iPad App] (currently on sale for $0.99 each!) “I’m addicted [to Words with Friends], man. But I mean, my life is words, you know, in times of my music. That’s why I think I’m so addicted.”
