Steve and iPad
- Posted on August 25, 2011
Having dinner with friends the day before yesterday, when leaving, my friends asked me: what's the big news recently? These reporter of technology industry have kept busy, since Motorola acquired by Google, HP given up the PC and HP WebOS, as well as Facebook defeated Foursquare ... until the Steve Job's resignation in this morning. One of the most important thing is Steve's left. (Related: Read Google Books on iPad)
I believe many people are aware of his deeds in the apple, but in my mind, the iPad is the greatest miracle he brought to Apple. While many people just laughed it was the big iPhone when saw iPad at the first time, I have been aware of this little thing, will change the human's habits of using computers. Why? Too much. The report by the Appstore Bureau, the hardware design, weight, size and even the packaging, all of these things mean that this will be Apple's Steve most successful product in his life.
This year, the securities industry has been estimated that Apple will sell 22M of the iPad. I feel that will sell more. Because at present and in the next six months, there are simply not mediocre opponents. I just bought a Chromebook, it is simply completely different thing from iPad, and it will be beloved by a small number of people. (Related: Play Amazon Movies on iPad 2)
Google who purchased Motorola , and the upcoming launch of the Android version of Ice-cream Sandwich, can beat iPad 2 or 3 in the future? I just think there may be possibility in hardware, but software developers and large companies simply ignore Google. Appstore is much better than the Android Market, this really is a fact.
Coming back to Steve, I think he should be back. Because, Mac took a whole century, but failed to beat the PC, but the iPad defeated within two years on behalf of the PC: HP.
I am considering, need I buy an iPad, engraved with the name of Steve Jobs, in memory of his reign to bring this tremendous product of human technology? Goodbye, Jobs!
