  • I was a little disappointed with this episode although I shouldn’t be surprised. Most of the comments that were made were more from the standpoint of how the iPad would not work for the commenter and and what it could not do and not from the standpoint of what it could do and who it would work well for. I found many of the criticisms to be petty and unreasonable. Can’t do graphic editing? Not designed for that. Won’t run BBEdit? How is that the fault of the device?

    From what I can tell, the iPad is not designed to replace a MacBook or desktop computer for any and all purposes, just for specific tasks. From my standpoint the iPad makes a lot of sense for me. I want to be able to read a book, read and send email, do light word processing tasks on something with a larger screen that does not require me to lug my MacBook Pro around and has a tad ore power and screen real estate than my iPhone. If I need to code in BBEdit, do page layout, or manipulate graphics I’ll head to my MacBook Pro or my desktop machine.

    Honestly I have been very happy with the podcast so far and just urge you to remember what you have in the header “by humans, for humans”. Look beyond the “what can’t this technology do for me” and see what it CAN do for other users.

    Keep up the good work.
