Yet, if everyone had waited for the second generation of cars then where would we be? Gitty up! The fact is early adopters pave the way for "the general public", do they not?
It's kinda funny that there are so many people who complain about the Apple fanatics who have jumped on board and bought a iPad and are rushing to find cool new ways to use the device (even though you can do EVERYTHING an iPad can do, with a laptop, and do it better I might add), when it's the very success of the iPad that is driving the new market. I say new because, even though tablets have been around for quite a while, the new interface has been a huge success. It's kind of a catch 22. Don't jump onboard until after the technology matures, but if folks don't jump onboard then there is no drive to push the technology to mature. The tablet market is a perfect example in the fact that tablets have been around for years but they haven't developed and worked their way into the mass market because they just haven't been a success. Now the iPad comes along and has been a huge success which is driving other companied to develop new products, and eventually new processes.
I say the more that can jump onboard the iPad express the better because it is driving technology forward.
