Denny's Note: I have been experimenting with Google Buzz. It is an interesting tool that could have lots of potentials for the LoveMyTool community. For now, it is also a unique forum allowing me to write about things that interest me, but not necessary related to LoveMyTool or StartupForLess. Occasionally, I will re-post a popular item. Hope you enjoy.
**iPad is the Prequel**
Along with half-a-million fellow worshippers, I have had my iPad for almost a week. And I have read every single review from every possible perspective.
What I find interesting is that while everyone seem to finally agree that the iPad is just a large iPod Touch, they disagree on whether or not the larger format iPad has any unique and sustainable values, especially to those who already own a MacBook and an iPhone.
My own take is that it is not possible to properly evaluate the iPad by thinking of it as a sequel to the iPhone. Instead you need to think of the iPad as the prequel.
In other words, you need to time-travel and assume that the iPhone (or iPod Touch) doesn't exist at all and iPad is in reality the first mobile device from Apple with a touch interface. And the "One More Thing" that Steve promised is that the upcoming IPad Nano (aka iPhone) would be a small form factor iPad but with a built-in GSM phone and a bonus camera.
