Apple - iPad - Introducing the iPad - Strengths and Weaknesses



Apple’s latest creation has been touted as the magical fusion between smart phones and computers. Despite all the hype, there are two big questions that need to be answered, what can it do, and what can it do better?

The first answer is easy. The pad can do anything an Ipod touch can do, but it does it bigger. There are few truly new features on the Ipad, it has just been enlarged to make it much easier to use. The larger size makes it easier to compose emails, watch video and surf the web. The instant on feature also means no more waiting for your computer to boot up. In essence, the Ipad makes basic web surfing more user friendly.


Users will only notice a difference when they try to create content. Composing long emails, making spreadsheets and editing photos still requires a computer. The two largest drawbacks are the lack of multi tasking capabilities and the fact that the Ipad does not support flash player. No flash means it can not play many videos or graphics currently used online. Without the ability to multitask, the Ipad can only run one program at a time. Other drawbacks include the lack of a camera and no USB or fire wire ports. This being said, the Ipad does offer a slim and portable alternative for basic computing needs. Only time will tell if the Ipad can succeed but judging by its initial sales figures, apple may just have another winner!


Meet the iPad. It has a revolutionary, 9.7-inch, high-resolution, Multi-Touch screen. And it can run almost 140,000 apps from the App Store. All in a design that's just 1.5 lbs and 0.5 inches thin.

“hey guys, there’s been some talk on here about myPadMedia and I thought I’d give it a review after getting my iPad.

I’ve been able to download all the Harry Potter books, the entire Twilight Series, some David Balducci books, and even the comic book of that new movie ‘Kick-Ass’.
