The iPad will go bust

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 11, 2010

I don’t get it.

What exactly does the iPad offer that you can’t find in the iPhone?

This whole excitement over it being used as a electronic reader is dumb, because e-ink is only reason the Kindle works as a reader. The iPad will have the same glaring backlit screen as the iPhone.

I think it would be cool if it had a miniature projector. Then it could be used in business for presenting Powerpoint slides, and recreationally to watch movies in makeshift home theatres. But who knows if that’s possible or would even be as cool as I am envisioning it.

So far Apple has navigated the economic downturn shrewdly. I had not expected a company that makes discretionary consumable products to fare so well.  But all good things come to an end, especially improbable ones, and I am hereby predicting the iPad will end Apple’s winning streak in convincing fashion.

    I would feel gay walking around with an iPad.
