  • Nice interview.
    I actually didn’t think the iPhone 3G made the iPhone the powerhouse it is today. I still use my original iPhone and for me it was the OS update that came out at the same time as the 3G that propelled the iPhone forward. The 3G hardware offered faster speed and GPS, but other than that it was the software that changed everything.

    For the iPad I don’t think it’s hardware updates, but rather software and the ingenuity of developers making really rich interfaces with that larger screen that’ll launch the portable iPad. Multi-touch is crazy awesome… especially on a large display. That’s what’ll make the iPad in my opinion.

    As technophiles we tend to focus too much on little things a camera or multi-tasking which can be nice features, but we should be honest with how much we would actually use them. Video-Chat cool, taking a picture with an iPad… awkward. Multi-tasking… the only relevant one I’ve heard is listening to pandora while doing something else.

    Does anyone know of other multi-tasking needs that would really benefit and be worth a little less batt life?

    Feel free to chime in and let us know!
