The future of iPad

Turning the clock back to 2010, the iPad was something of a risky move for Apple.

At that time, netbooks had a strong market presence. Apple was pressured to respond but the company was loath to embrace the chintzy plastic, slow performance, low battery life and particularly the cramped keyboard of the netbook's heyday. Indeed, the iPad was to the netbook what the iPhone was to the BlackBerry -- a rejection of compromised input at the expense of software-defined touch display.

Autism awareness, iPad, and changing lives

I spent six years working with secondary-aged (14-21 years old) students with autism. It was one of the hardest and most rewarding things I've ever had the privilege to do.

At that time, the state of technology for these types of uses was woefully behind where it is today. Granted, we're talking about 1999-2005, but stay with me. The technology that non-verbal students used to communicate, for instance, was a huge, heavy piece of metal and plastic that had barely programmable capabilities for certain words and phrases that would be spoken upon selection through a garish sound system rivaled only by 1980s clock radio speakers. This equipment was exorbitantly priced, and very inflexible. The one thing it did well (arguably) was stand up to some abuse. They were like small tanks. But the kids would have to wear them around their necks and shoulders, which could be extremely uncomfortable. If they didn't have it with them, communication with others became difficult.

iPad and its impact: Five years later

Five years ago Apple once again revolutionized personal computing — and shipped the iPad.

The iPad was the first tablet that made sense. Some accused it of "just" being a big iPhone — and that was its genius. As I said at the time, it was the iPhone gone IMAX: The big screen allowed for a greater sophistication. It gave us a larger window into the Internet and apps and made them both bigger and better. It was also just the beginning...
