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.

my favorite app for my ipad is Procreate. it's a drawing app. and if you like to draw, it's amazing.

right now i wouldn't buy anything else than an ipad, because this software is on it. and i think that's where apple is going to win. they are developing a software ecosystem, and they are getting there first, so they will win the tablet area because of the software.

im not sure if microsoft has the right idea with windows 8. they are going to try to put all their old software and all the old windows apps by turning windows into their fresh new tablet os. old windows apps are not tablet friendly. also they risk alienating their windows desktop/laptop users by making it so tablet oriented. and they risk their new windows 8 tablet not having tablet software for it. who's gonna write tablet software if their tablet can just run regular windows software?

people want to develop for the ipad right now because it's so new. it reminds me of the commodore 64 hand me down i had. there was tons of software on the disks. and it was just fun to play with. the ipad has captured people's imaginations.
