So, there it is. The iPad.
It’s not everything I had hoped it would be. I can see why Apple wouldn’t allow it to become an input device for a Mac as I imagined. Primarily because it needs to be clearly “it’s own person” as it were. It also needs to clearly be part of it’s own ecosystem. It’s an ecosystem that involves lots of buying stuff, like music, books and movies and apps…
I have to say that while I was watching the keynote, all the possibilities for the device swirled around in my head and I literally thought to myself “this changes everything.” It does. Some people don’t see it yet, but it totally does.
