Apple The beauty of the internet is such that every opinion has become worthless; this goes doubly so for those with publish buttons on (relatively, we're humble) major websites. For every opinion, there's a matching counter-opinion, and that's great. Yesterday, we linked to an article by Mark Pilgrim about tinkerers and the iPad, and of course, someone was bound to disagree with that one.

The iPad is "It"

I'm 58 years old. I won't go through all my experience with tinkering, learning about computers, etc. as it goes back a long, long way.

I just wanted to say that, for good or ill (for tinkerers), the iPad is the closest thing yet I've seen to what has always been the ultimate goal of "computing for the masses" - the computer or device where the user doesn't have to know anything. That's always been the vision of...tinkerers...to get to that level. Now that it's just about here, I have to admit, it is odd.

The iPad (and other tablets like it) is going to be huge. Really huge.
