Finally one Apple gadget I don’t have to buy
I just watched Steve’s keynote about the iPad and I am happy to announce that this is the first Apple gadget that does not trigger the “must have” effect.
Seeing the keynote I really don’t get the excitment about this thing:
- It’s yet another device to carry around, too big to fit in a pocket and too limited to really be of any serious use.
Seriously, do you’d want to write a 30 page Pages document on this thing?
- Oh yeah I forgot: it’s an eBook reader…
Wait, I’ve never seen one of those – and it comes with an eBook store – now there’s some real innovation.
- The battery lasts for 10 hours… Yay, great. And then? You’ll have to carry some huge Mophie Juice Pack…
The battery of my Sony eBook reader lasts for 1500 page turns.
- And most of the really needed stuff is missing. I fully agree with this article.
