    I would like help folks to better understand that iPad (and other similar touch screen competitive devices that will be coming) are the beginning of a new way and more natural way to bring computing into our lives. Jesus Diaz at Gizmodo has generated several articles to this effect. Amazing insight. It changes the entire focus. A new paradigm shift is happening. I wonder if many of the fabulous people on this and other forums are even grasping the key ideas. Jef Raskin, and Alan Kay are two of the original masterminds of the idea that a digital device can morph into what ever I/we/us need so as not to be confined by the hardware of the moment. It is the software, the apps, that are changing the whole landscape. The execs from many top companies are blind sided by it. MS is clinging on for dear life (theirs). So many of the comments are structured around why can't the ipad, apps and iTunes be something else, more like my Windows driven stuff ... I just want this to be a better legacy laptop and on and on it goes. Most of the comments are a lot of what I call "cut and paste" ... not a lot of original thinking ... just parroting.

    The article on why Photoshop for ipad is changing the world of computing, Jesus Diaz is a must read. Then follow the links. It is truely an awakening. At least it was for me. Just wanted to share with with you all.:)

    I thought it was a good article.
    Gizmodo, the Gadget Guide
    Link reposted for ease of use :)

    Basically Apple demonstrated the potential of iOS at the iPad2 announcement. Both iMovie and GarageBand are desktop quality software. Photoshop is just the beginning as I don't think it will be long before iPhoto appears. Now the hardware is up to scratch the software will follow.

    That 10/GUI concept video was interesting. To bad the adaptable haptic interfaces like that concept of the Nokia Morph aren't available yet. You could start replacing keyboards too.

    And people think Apple users are Kool-Aid drinkers!

    There are a lot of comments after the article, but this one just made me shake my head and say tsk tsk tsk....

    Actually I would very like more options for custom keyboard layouts directly in iOS. I think mainly of Kindergarden education. We teach them the alphabet and then scramble it all up on a keyboard so they have to go hunting for the correct letter. Granted we do start them on typing programs early but that's still having them learn two different letter layouts when they may not yet be confident with either one.

    I think you completely missed 1994's point on that post. He was shaking his head at the comment that he quoted, not your original post.

    Still, I actually agree with the comment that 1994 quoted from with one small change. I can never hope to do with my iPad what I can with my desktop without a full windowed interface and true multitasking (doesn't have to be MS Windows). I do believe that we will get there with tablets over time, but they still have a long way to go.
