Redefinition

John Gruber, commenting on the iPad’s impact on the computer market:

Correlation is not causation, but if you look at this and don’t see that the iPad is disrupting the entire computer industry, you’ve got your head in the sand (or some other hole).

Indeed you do. Take a look at the slope of that graph in the article. Amazing.

I love what one of the commenters said about the iPad:

Don’t kid yourself. It’s a computer, just very different from what we’re used to calling a computer.

Absolutely -- the key phrase in that statement being “very different from”. The best part is, tablets1 are only going to get better as time goes on.


  1. Well, the iPad 3 will definitely be better, especially with a Retina display. Here’s hoping Amazon and Microsoft step up their games.
