So, basically, this more or less echoes my feelings on the the iPad. If you’re a low-watt zombie with more cash than creativity and giant hole where you sense of self-worth should be, welcome to the Pleasure Dome. If you get high off something other than ennui and the scent of flaming hundos, you’ll find better things to do.

And the techies are right about another thing: the iPad is not a laptop. It’s not nearly as good for creating stuff. On the other hand, it’s infinitely more convenient for consuming it — books, music, video, photos, Web, e-mail and so on. For most people, manipulating these digital materials directly by touching them is a completely new experience — and a deeply satisfying one.
