City of Brass

The tech blogsphere is obsessed with Apple’s announcement of it’s new iPad tablet device today (personally, I’d have called it Newton 2). Frankly I don’t think the new device makes much sense from a consumer perspective and has zero chance of displacing Amazon’s Kindle from it’s throne – the Kindle is to books as the iPod was to music and iPhone to mobiles, and Apple seems intent on not repeating their common formula for success: do one thing superbly better than everyone else, for the same price. Instead, the Apple tablet wants to be all things to everyone, a classic case of being a jack of all trades and master of none.

If you’re as weary of the Apple hype machine as I am, then check out my more detailed argument for Apple Tablet skepticism over at my geek blog. Of course I might be totally wrong 🙂
