The Next, Next Big Thing

The Next, Next Big Thing

The next several days will be filled with iPad reviews, commentary and speculation. I just poked around AppShopper and I’m very excited for the future.

Apps I’m most looking forward to playing with:
Netflix app:

ABC Player:

Yahoo! Entertainment:

NYT Editors’ Choice:

I’ve long held that the internet could and should be a backend to a single purpose app. I’m anxious to see how this kind of thing develops and if the subscription model holds for those apps trying to make a go of a subscription model.

I’m also anxious to play with photo editing apps. The touch interface is fantastic for doing certain kinds of work on photos. Sure, I’ll use it as a reader and comparisons to Amazon.com’s Kindle only remind me of my desire to start touching the Kindle screen to select text and click links. I’m happy that Amazon is releasing their Kindle Reader app for the iPad as well.

Yeah, I know, I suck if I buy this. Stick it in your keister, bub. I’ll enjoy being a good consumer. Just like you, comrade.

    I got excited just seeing the iPad on Modern Family last night!I can’t wait to see if you love the iPad or not, because if you do…iPad 2.0 is all mine! I am holding out to see what people say before I dive in…such a follower. Keep us posted!

    I’ll be buying it when it comes to Canada.

    Can’t wait.

    Jon,

    I’m waiting for the 3G. Will love it when I go to a hotel on the road and they want $15 a night for WiFi. Sign me up for a month of 3G. Yahoo!

    First Modern Family, then Stephen Colbert, Noe Blueb. I want an iPad, too! But alas, no money (sad sigh). Let’s us know how you like it.

    Err, I meant “now Blurb”. Keyboard on iPad will definitely beat keyboard on iPhone.

    I don’t think you suck. Planning on buying one myself eventually, but I think I’ll wait until the next iteration so they can get out all the bugs.

    OK, I seriously was not interested in the ipad at all until I just saw your post and that my kiddo could watch Caillou or Sesame Street. Anywhere. That, my friend, is worth every penny.

    I did not plan to buy an iPad today, but I did.

    32 Gb

    It’s wonderful. Yes, I’ll also buy a 32 3G model when it comes out and gift the WiFi model to a family member.

    It’s way more responsive than the iPhone, the screen is outstanding. After using the iPad for a while I found my 15-inch MacBook Pro to be HEAVY!

    Yes, I am weak and I do not need to drink the Kool-Aid, just breathe the fumes.

    I am easily most excited for SwankoLab from the Hipstamatic guys. I so want the iPad to be my mobile photo studio. I’ve already got my portfolio on it so I have a constantly-current display device. Much better than print!
