I’ve heard/read lots of stuff about the iPad. Here are two contrasting posts from the blogosphere.
The first is a short little movie. You’ll enjoy it. http://thetoiletpaper.com/blog/2010/velcro-ipad-we-want-one/
The next is a really good article from The Harvard Business Review. http://blogs.hbr.org/bregman/2010/06/why-i-returned-my-ipad.html
Be sure to read all the way to the end.
