Is the iPad Magical

Essays like this one from Dan Bricklin make me want to go get one and decide for myself.

I think he has a great perspective on the iPad. It is about the user, and not the application or the content. I love the Kindle app, not because of the books, but because I can conveniently carry around a lot of books, and flip between them. I can read what I want, when I want. While navigation inside the book can be a little cumbersome, I’m learning to make it work better.

I’m still holding off, perhaps waiting for some news of what might change in the iPad before I think about getting one. That, and hoping prices come down a bit with the next generation. If I had a great business case, I’d get one, but right now it still feels like a bit of a toy to me.
