Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should know that today, Saturday, April 3, 2010, Apple released it’s iPad. The iPad is a touchscreen computer that will “revolutionize computing.”
It’s said that the iPad will “revolutionize journalism” with it’s touchscreen, portability and state-of-the-art concept. What do you think? Can the iPad resurrect j0urnalism? Will it change Web journalism? If so, how?
I’m split. I’m like this guy and am a gadget and technology dork. I love the newest technology. I’m also an Apple guy. However, I’m also a computer guy, and I know that the iPad only runs one app at a time, so you cannot multi-task like you can on a regular computer. Also, touchscreens have a tendency to be finicky, so you might have a hard time typing on the iPad.
Did anybody pre-order one on Apple’s Web site? Did anybody pull an all-nighter outside of Best Buy to get their hand on one? Has anybody tried it yet? Your thoughts?
