More Thoughts on the iPad

And, when I say more thoughts, I mean other people’s thoughts.  My last post about it may seem like I think its going to bomb or that I don’t see the market for it.  But, that’s not true.  I think I’m just more disappointed in what it’s not than appreciative of what it is.

So, what is it, then?  Well, Gizmodo and Daring Fireball both describe their take on what it is, and more importantly, what it means for Apple:

Gizmodo – The iPad is the Gadget We Never Knew We Needed

Daring Fireball – The iPad Big Picture

(I still hate the name though, but I’m getting used to hearing.  I guess, eventually, it’ll sound as normal as “iPod” does now.)
