A new and better way to procrastinate

The most striking thing I find about my iPad is how effective I find it to use. The continuing refrain in the news - for example in a recent BBC article about the iPad's first day in the UK - is that it is a device for consuming, but not producing content.

I beg to differ.

I think the real issue is that we can't produce it in exactly the same way that we have grown used to with our current PCs because it is a much more structured device. This leads to having to relearn some of our paradigms and change our habits - always an uncomfortable thing to do.

This blog is an example of content creation. The iWork suite is a great example of apps for creating content and there will be more.

Latest reviews: (Canada Centric, eh?)
