iPads for luddites

The darndest thing happened in the last five days and I was fortunate to be privy to it. Apple has gotten people excited about computing.

But this time, it’s not nerds or geeks and certainly not IT industry analysts. It’s everyone else.

I had a curious set of three conversations this week. One with a grandma, one with a technophobe and the third with a self-proclaimed luddite.

Deinitely read this short piece. You already know the people in this post — they’re all around us.

Only time will tell what happens with the iPad, but one thing is for sure: It won’t be another Apple TV. This thing will sell, just not so much to the nerds that are taking potshots at it.
