What’s the iPad Got in Common with Windows 95?

Windows 95

According to Michael Gartenberg, the two share the fact that mainstream consumers have huge levels of interest in them.  He has a feeling that non-techie users are excited about the iPad in ways that they very rarely are for any tech product – similar to the excitement people felt for Windows 95 and the iPhone.

I am beginning to get a similar impression – I’m seeing big enthusiasm for the iPad amongst ‘normal’ non-techie folks as well.

What do you all think?  Is the iPad drawing major interest among your non-techie friends and acquaintances?  Will this interest translate into sales?

  1. I think the more technical folks put too much emphasis on the technical aspects of the iPad; sort of a forest for the trees problem. Apple comes at it from the usage standpoint. When the iPhone was introduced, the techie response was, yeah this is great but a lots missing.

    I think once people use an iPad and see the apps that will be coming, they will love it. And us techies will be able to use GoToMyPC!
