Why do we need an iPad
February 14, 2010 1 Comment
This question seems to be figuring everywhere on the internet these days, so I decided to put my own 5 cents to the bunch. And I would like to start with my own “why” questions. Because this thing answers so many whys I’ve been asking for years, and I will try to explain what it was.
Why do people need newspapers/magazines? It’s ridiculous, it’s hard to use, they give you too much information of which you need too little, plus it’s more expensive to make them + delivery etc.
Why do people need hard cover books? I am absolutely happy reading PDFs of my laptops screen. Same issues, plus after you read one book, you put it on the shelf, you waste space. It’s stuff you don’t really need any more. Though if you do need it and you need to come back to something it’s quite hard to find it inside 600 pages without search.
Why do people need TV? No really! I hate TV. I like the content. But not the channels. For years now, I only use a TV for the output from my laptop or gaming console. And I watch only things I want, and when I want.
That’s just a few things really. But think about this. Wouldn’t it be great if you wouldn’t need to take a Metro newspaper every day before catching the train? You would already have it updated on your iPad. The latest TV Shows would be automatically downloaded to iTunes and with a simple sync you’ve got them to watch at any time you can do it. Books – do I have to say the same thing again? Though I prefer audible books myself anyway.
So why? It’s convenient. It has necessary things always there when you need them. Plus full blown internet without flash. Isn’t it great? No need for a flash blocker. Damn it’s great!
