The iPad does more

More Open

J-P Teti:

The iPad only does less than a regular computer to us geeks. To everyone else, it does more. This is what Motorola and Google and Samsung and BlackBerry and everyone else, with the sole exception of Apple, do not get about “open” computing.

Astute analysis of the iPad to regular folks.

Very nice insight. One of Apple’s great innovations is giving the majority of people what they want and need, not what the geeks want. It is always interesting to read a geek site because any new tech device is devoured simply by tech specs, with little real consideration of real world us by most consumers.

I’ve been a geek long enough to know that specs mean little, that novelty does not mean success and that a strong strategic plan is better than copycat hardware.
