The first thing you see when you take the iPad out of its beautiful white box, is a reflection of your own visage. You see yourself, as reflected by the iPad’s display. Those with iPads can imagine why this amuses me to no end. It answers the question people often ask me: why do you need an iPad?
A great many iPhone apps would benefit from the larger screen real estate provided by the iPad. However, there are quite a few apps that are fine in their current format. In one of my many day dreams… I see Apple providing a framework that allows 4 normal-sized iPhone apps to run simultaneously. Not only does this allow us to mashup our favorite apps, but we can cut-and-paste text, images, video and audio in-between apps. Whoa hang on, since it is my day dream… we can drag-and-drop text, images, video and audio in-between apps… there that’s better.
