Updated December 8th, 2015.
You may not have heard but Apple introduced something called the iPad today. There are plenty of places for you to read about the not-shipping-for-two-months iPad, and I haven’t had my hand(s) on one yet, so rather than write about it myself I’m just sending you a few links.
It certainly looks like an interesting device. Two things that jump out at me: Apple used its own chip to power the iPad– they did not use an Intel chip, nor an AMD chip, nor any other kind of chip. I’ve always liked apple chips, by the way, though I prefer banana.
The other thing that jumps out at me is the lack of a camera. I sort of think it ought to have one. So much for doing video chats with it.
I wonder if it can print. I’ll try to find out.
UPDATE: here is the video of Steve Jobs introducing the iPad. 93 minutes.
UPDATE AGAIN: I should have included a link to John Gruber’s Daring Fireball website. Go there now and read everything he had to say about the iPad.
