Apple Even though I was extremely sceptical of this whole tablet thing, I bought an iPad 2 a few weeks ago. Obviously, this occasion couldn't pass by without a proper review of the thing on OSNews, so here we are. Inside, my view on the iPad 2, and more importantly, how my perception of tablets has been turned around completely.

Hey Thom,

With full-screening of apps one could argue that the UI of the individual application is more important than the overall UI of the operating system and surrounding ecosystem. This could herald an empowerment of application developers to specialize the UI towards a particular task given the full-screen immersion. Much like a gaming console - the UI for games are wildly divergent and do not match the console interface - but at the same time are intuitive and highly effective for their intended task.

The other thing I wanted to post was a recommendation to try Pulse new reader - I started using it a month ago - the interface is a fun take on reading news sites.
