This is a great post – the iPad will be successful because it works for boomers:
Enter the larger, faster iPad. It’s a complex computer simplified, which makes it a perfect fit to those whose remaining life is too short to spend it defragging drives. Add the keyboard dock, and the iPad is versatile enough to be a baby boomer’s only computer. The only thing it won’t let them do is videoconference with their grandchildren – which is an omission I hope they fix in next year’s version – but on the other hand, at $500 this much is forgiven.
