Nevertheless, the shortsightedness of punditry is evergreen. Instead of praising the iPad, critics express their disappointment, because they expected more. They expected a genre buster. They expected something they’d never seen before, something beyond their imagination. Something revolutionary.
They’re disappointed that the iPad is so… well… unsurprising.
I’ve done this, and I’m a little surprised more haven’t done so. The only thing I miss out on is sports, but I hope someone comes up with a solution for that soon. It just doesn’t make sense anymore to pay for ‘cable-packages’ with bajillions of channels when you only watch 2% of the content, especially when you can get most of it for free online.
Remember in Iron Man how Tony Stark had a computer named Jarvis that ran his house? Well, this dude built that for his apartment. He developed it and maintains it through his mac mini, and controls it with his iPhone (or voice recognition). It’s not nearly as refined as the Iron Man version, but it’s still pretty awesome.
