I have a first generation iPad. I actually won it, believe it or not. Not through some sketchy spam on Facebook, but rather by being a tester of a web tool that someone I knew was building.
Today Apple announced their “new iPad”. Of course I want one, but I can’t really justify buying it. But what I want even more than the product is the chance to build something that everyone will covet. There have been too many pixels devoted to the creative process at Apple, and I’m not going to attempt to add to that here. But as someone who loves good products (and doesn’t enjoy marketing), the freedom to create something great and know that there will be a market for it is a truly drool-worthy thought.
That being said, I will definitely be first in line for the “new iPhone” later this year.
