4 Things Wrong With the iPad

People have been asking us what we think of the iPad.

Parable: How do you know when you become a really good golfer? You think about the few bad shots you had after every round, instead of the few good shots.

iPad is just such a good invention, it's hard to come up with a few bad shots to mention.

But here they are.

(1) No support for Flash, Adobe's platform used to add animation, video, and interactivity to Web pages. No remedy planned.

(2) No multi-tasking. That's expected to be remedied in November.

(3) Impossible to see the screen when outdoors. No remedy planned.

(4) A closed file and operating system that inhibits control to apps. No remedy planned - it is the essence of how the platform is conceived.
