iPad Discourse

31 Jan

I know it’s unoriginal, but I would be remiss not to mention the biggest tech news of the week: Apple’s long-anticipated announcement of the iPad (aka iTablet or iSlate, both of which would have been much, much better names). While I grieve for the inevitable disappearance of print news and books, which the iPad will most certainly expedite, I will let two historical figures present their perspectives on Apple’s newest gadget. I believe both of them have valid viewpoints, and they also boil down the massive discussion of pros and cons flourishing across the web.

Personally, I think Hitler is a bit harsh. At least Pee Wee knows how to use the iPad for multitasking.

    I don’t like the fact that I was actually siding with Hitler on this one…

    I think people still look to Apple to solve ALL of its technology problems. iPad was never marketed as a laptop computer, nor a phone, so why are people pissed?!

    I read one blogger’s response to the hate mail by saying that it would be perfect for his mother. No network cables, and no printer problems — just email, reading of a book or two and the opportunity to watch a movie in bed.
