Apple iPad Is Too Magical

Apple iPad Is Too Magical

Do we live in a fairy tale? The Apple presentation of the Apple iPad Tablet has way too much talk about magic for me.
If you call something you make magic, it is probably not. If a future user of the iPad says that the iPad is magical then that is a great accolade, but if a company is selling you magic it really does not sound trustworthy to me.

Why is Apple now so intensively talking about magic? Just watch the iPad video presentation. It is full of magic talk by Jonathan Ive. He says if you do not understand how something works it becomes magic.

But what is there not to understand? The iPad is a giant iPhone with a new super fast Apple A4 CPU. It is a great technical achievement, but far from something completely different. It is still a computer and it magically does not support Adobe Flash.

I really hope Apple stops that Magic crap and just keeps it real. The iPad is a great product that I will pre-order as soon as Apple lets me.
The $499 price is kicking Microsoft and Intel really hard into their groin. The only real competition for the iPad in the foreseeable future will come from the Google Chrome OS and Android camp.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
