iPad future

A lot of people have asked me about my opinions on the iPad. Here are a couple of good articles that fairly closely match my thinking.

The Failure of Empathy (of those who naysay the iPad)

New World and Old World computing

Or for a very short summary, here’s what Ken wrote on the Omni blog (Omni Group is the company I work for):

Remember how Macintosh was intended to be the computer “for the rest of us“?  That’s what we feel Apple’s iPad is:  the best computing device for most of the things people use computers for.  (Or, as Apple puts it, “the best way to experience the web, email, and photos.”)  It’s the computer people can sit down and start using immediately, without training, whether they’re 2 or 92.

That doesn’t mean you personally are going to want one today. But I’ll wager that within a few years (five at most), something like this will be your computer of choice.
