David Pogue weighs in on iPad, David Pogue weighs in on iPad
Pogue wraps with the following endorsement:
"[T]he techies are right about another thing: the iPad is not a laptop. It's not nearly as good for creating stuff. On the other hand, it's infinitely more convenient for consuming it - books, music, video, photos, Web, e-mail and so on. For most people, manipulating these digital materials directly by touching them is a completely new experience - and a deeply satisfying one.
"The bottom line is that the iPad has been designed and built by a bunch of perfectionists. If you like the concept, you'll love the machine.
"The only question is: Do you like the concept?"Jetpacks, tablets - once we get those "meal in a pill" things, we'll know it's the future.
