Just my observation but I believe the iPad will be a long term success story much like the iPod was and remember that changed everything.
People (which include TV, Film and Print industry people) are much too much into immediate gratification. They have to help out in reaching that sweet spot. It’s not up to Apple to hand it over on a silver platter. Apple has simply provided the vehicle to achieve it.
iPad is an advance in technology that we don’t understand yet. I am confident that this will be revolutionary for the future of the print and rich media industry.
That’s all I have to say 🙂
