Doc: iPads? Where we're going we don't need iPads!
OK, this was supposed to be a post on the "Rise and Fall of the Smart Airliner Slate." So, what does this have to do with the iPad? Well, I was going to look for an update to the Airliner when Steve Jobs started his rant on the iPad. So, I started to think that the iPad would serve as a nice platform for my screencasting activities. However, the iPad isn't all its cracked up to be! It was supposed to be Mac's answer to a Tablet PC. If that were the case, I could use it, but it's just a big iPod Touch (ie: iPhone without a cell phone or a camera)! If the iPad used Mac OS X, which is just a form of Linux BTW, that would be one thing, but it uses the iPod OS....
The new model is the WS200 retailing for $350 with a writing surface measuring just " instead of the Airliner's 6"x8" writing surface...wow. Maybe I'll look at the new HP Slate PC?
