We all know that Apple creates and — maybe more importantly — markets cool products. Every time they release a new product (typically with much fanfare), I’m left drooling and counting the days until it will be available to get my hands on. Now, I haven’t actually purchased every major Apple product, but when a new one comes out, I generally feel like I “need” to have it.
When Apple recently released the iPad, I had my standard reaction — “Wow, that’s cool!”
But as I found out more about the product, I was left wondering why I would need this. Just about everything that can be done on the iPad, can be accomplished on the iPod, iTouch or MacBook. Do I really need one more device that I need to keep track of?
One of the things that makes Apple unique is that it never holds focus groups. It doesn’t ask people what they want; it tells them what they’re going to want next. Well, I don’t think I actually want this.
I will take one of those sweet new iPod nanos, though.
