I think the Apple iPad will be amazing and that most tech critics just don’t get it, because they are too distant from the needs of the casual users. Therefore I trust Steve Jobs on this rather than anyone else. Time will tell who was right and who was wrong.

Some quotes from the respected tech journalists on Apple devices in the past:

The Macintosh uses an experimental pointing device called a ‘mouse’. There is no evidence that people want to use these things.

(John C. Dvorak on the introduction of the original Apple Macintosh in San Francisco Examiner, 19 February 1984)

No wireless. Less space than a nomad. Lame.

(Slashdot editor CmdrTaco comments on the release of the iPod, 23 January 2001)

The original iPhone was also almost universally criticised for lack of many features (some of which have appeared in iPhone 3G and 3GS). So with Apple it is best not to listen to the reviews, but try these things out on your own.

    I agree! I also think that iPad vs 3.0 will be the killer tablet. I also predict that this product will more popular with women than other computer products.

    If the product is obvious to everyone, then it wouldn’t be revolutionary, would it?
