Why the iPad Matters

Why the iPad MattersThere have been a host of complaints about the iPad – it doesn’t do this, it doesn’t have that, why can’t it, I wish it would, it’s closed … Even Hitler was disappointed. All this misses the point.

The iPad represents a fundamental shift in the metaphors and language of "computing." Or rather it extends that shift that was tested first in our pockets with the iPhone, and brings it to our desks, our coffee tables … everywhere else. The iPad is a huge change.

Recent reports have had Apple talking to Microsoft about adding their search engine and maps to the iPhone. Steve Jobs put that to rest, for at least the foreseeable future, by saying that the iPad used Google for its Maps application.

Apple Inside: the Significance of the IPad’s A4 Chip

At the heart of the iPad lies a tiny sliver of silicon. A game changer within a game changer. That’s Apple’s A4, a system-on-a-chip (SoC) that reportedly combines a low-power CPU, a graphics processing unit (GPU), and other hardware, much of which is still confidential.
