I have a whole long list of topics I want to write about, but they all need to get in line behind the impending announcement of the iPad. I mean, what kind of tech blog would this be without at least three different iPad articles (and I am sure there will be more in the future)? When Apple first announced the iPad, there were those that recognized immediately that it would change the industry forever. Some of us had our doubts and were not exactly sure how the device would be used by the mainstream consumer. The iPad is not available to the public yet, but between its astronomical pre-order numbers, its almost unparalleled hype, its overwhelmingly positive feedback from tech giants such as Walt Mossberg and others, it is pretty clear that the computing world is in for a Tsunami of unprecedented proportions.
I, for one, am always amazed by Apple’s ability to generate hype surrounding its product launches. It makes me wonder if it is something in their marketing strategy that creates this buzz or it is the actual product that is just that good. It is most probably a mixture of both.
Over the next few months, it is pretty clear that there will be hundreds of sites reviewing the iPad, and we will be providing an in depth review as well. However, in this space, timing is crucial, and since Apple’s policy of secrecy regarding new products is well known and kinda ridiculous if you ask me, a video review of the iPad a few days before its launch, is actually a big deal. So, without further ado, we would like to thank our friends over at PCMAG for providing this quick and thorough review of the soon-to-be-release Apple iPad.
