Apple iPad is Intuitive Fun, Untapped Potential

Apple iPad is Intuitive Fun, Untapped Potential

It seemed like forever, but the UPS delivery man made his way this late morning with Apple's latest and greatest in a plain brown box that contained the apple of our eyes. We've been testing out all the features, downloading free and paid apps galore, and we'll have an indepth review this week.

So far we can report the iPad is extremely responsive, extremely intuitive to use, very easy to mar with fingerprints, tires out the arms (heavier than expected), is an able e-reader, with a mix of useful and fun apps, apps with potential but obviously rushed, and apps to avoid even if they're free. It's obvious even this early the iPad's success lays not in the hardware, but in the countless future apps that take advantage of the tablet format. But we can say wholeheartedly, streaming Netflix episodes of Arrested Development is an utter joy.
