Stephen Fry on the iPad

Read what Stephen Fry has to say about the iPad.

Why should one pay attention to what an actor, author and technophile thinks about the objet du jour? Because he’s good.

  1. Can the ipad create .rtf documents,such as a subsitute for microsoft word pad? In other words, can I get out of buying ’09 iwork if I get an ipad? Pages will not work on a mac without iwork, and I am in the market for either imac or macbook, and wonder if I can hold off with the cheaper wireless ipad to be able to make .rtf docs.

  2. I completely get what you are saying, Ciara. “Undercooked” is a good way to describe the iPad’s current state. Yet, as Fry notes in his article and as I felt when following the announcement, the same was true for the original iPhone. I didn’t get mine until the second generation came out, and imagine I may do the same for the iPad, but I believe that as technology and the market march forward, the iPad will become the standard for the portable electronic document reader, and everything else that it is capable of doing will be icing on the cake.

  3. Alot of bloggers are not very pleased with the new iPad.There was just 2 much hoopla about it and lots of blogers got turned off.You see, I can actually see great deal of the awesome potential of the device. Third-party applications for doing tunes, games, newsprints and magazines and books, all kinds of awesome stuff, but IMHO they failed to sell it very well (aside from the books). It looks kind of undercooked
