The iPad


Apple Inc. is reinventing computing (well, not so much Apple as Steve Jobs himself). The concept of a tablet isn’t new, but the implementation of it and the technology is superior to anyone who has ever tried before. And the packaging is beautiful. The device runs at only 2.5 watts. A typical desktop uses 100 watts with a monitor and a laptop rarely goes below 20 watts. It should be perfect for reading the paper, books and e-magazines, doing mail and surfing the web. Look for it to replace the desktop and laptop in many households. It can – and surely will – be yours someday.
