Somewhere between functionality and commodity fetish, but u don't have to buy anything. An aside point made above, Apple's exclusion of Google, it brings to light the control of the info gateway these company's have, not unlike the Oprah effect. Google has become THE clearinghouse of information and if u can't get on board u can't exist.

The iPad is useless. I'm much more excited about the Courier. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFQWc79TYcU If (and it's a big if) it works as smoothly as these software demo videos, I'll replace my sketchbook with one of these.

So frustrating, the whole thing. People keep telling me "well, it's not made for you, you're not the target audience." I know that. That's obvious. What we're hoping for is a better product for the target audience (and ourselves, of course). Just a better product in general. One that encourages creativity and ingenious production instead of streamlined consumption.

The keyboard is the part of the physical design most revealing that it was never meant to be used as a computer. I mean, who wants to use anything where you have to type like that? It's ridiculous.

A disturbing thing about this workable-keypad-amputating tech trend is that everyone who "writes" is basically discouraged to do so forever, with all these tap screen, one way, media consumption devices peddled to us. And who can afford to repeatedly satisfy the gadget lust every time they think of something newer and shinier?
