Apple Means Innovation

The other guys have effectively given up.  They all have conceded the title of innovator for the next century to Apple.

Today’s release of the IPad has ushered in another major trend in the era of personal computers.  The other guys will do what they do best and that is react.

Who knows how the iPad will do, but my guess is that it will do pretty good.  Revenues are almost secondary because it is the innovation that counts.  Apple continues to change the world.  They define the future of personal computing.

And how they draw us in – what to include in terms of memory, WiFi, 3G, browsing, etc. – is brilliant marketing.

Myself, not having the early adopter profile, will wait to see how users settle in.  It took me a year to jump on the iPhone bandwagon and looking back I wonder what took me so long.  All of the early consternation over the virtual keyboard and size of the viewing screen seem distant memories over minutiae.  The iPhone rocks.  So will the iPad.

If there is one innovator we should all want to live to 1,000 years old it’s Steve Jobs.
