I know this is a crazy thread title, but I am a crazy guy. I am 62 going on 12. I love technology, I love games. There is a PS3 game coming out next week called Heavy Rain. I was intrigued by it when I first read about it, but when people tried to describe its interface, it sounded bizarre. It sounded bizarre because it was without precedent. No one had played a game quite like it before so attempts to describe it were without a frame of reference. A few days ago, I played the demo of the game and was flabbergasted. The creators of the game have opened a door into a new world. I don't know if this is the case with the iPad, but I am hoping that I can make a similar comparison. If we compare what the iPad can do with iPhone apps or with anything we have seen previously, we may be missing the point of the iPad. Whether one is a fan of Steve Jobs and Apple or not, they are definitely not stupid. The success or failure of the iPad will be what it can become, not what it is. It is my hope, since I am too old to wait around a lot longer, that in the same way Heavy Rain is opening the door into a world, the iPad will do the same thing for the tablet. To compare it to laptops or notebook computers is to miss what Apple is trying to do, that is to establish a brand new genre. I for one am really excited at the prospect.
