Why I returned my iPad


Don't worry, I didn't. I am never going to, never!

But I did receive a link to a brilliant article by Peter Bregman describing the last moments before returning his beloved iPad (Thanks Inbar for sending that one over).

Here are some quotes:

"It's too easy. Too accessible. Both too fast and too long-lasting. Certainly there are some kinks, but nothing monumental. For the most part, it does everything I could want. Which, as it turns out, is a problem."

"The brilliance of the iPad is that it's the anytime-anywhere computer. On the subway. In the hall waiting for the elevator. In a car on the way to the airport. Any free moment becomes a potential iPad moment."

"That's not a problem with the iPad," my brother Anthony — who I feel compelled to mention is currently producing a movie called My Idiot Brother — pointed out. "It's a problem with you. Just don't use it as much."

Worth reading, believe me, it even has a nice moral at the end:

Why I returned by iPad

Here are my own thoughts about the iPad after using it for 2 weeks (more reports to come soon)
