Hi iPad lovers!
As I already wrote, iPad's new freedom from its enslavement to the PC was the top news from WWDC in SF this week. However there was one other thing I found quite exciting, and that was gesture navigation and Launchpad in Lion, the new Mac OS. Very attractive features. But they're not just good, it's the fact that they first appeared on the iPhone/iPad/iPod touch. These devices are the future, meaning that's where Apple's growth will occur. It's only natural that the laptop user interface is enhanced through cross-breeding with those great devices. Beautiful, and it's Apple yet again in the lead. They are the only company that can do this, because they make both the software and the hardware. It takes both and we see it clearer and clearer.
Now's just hoping that Apple can keep it up and not get lost in itself. Great success can be hard to handle.
