Ok. Two quick points and then I'm gone.
Which is again why I think THIS PARTICULAR iPad is not primarily suited for content creation, in it's most intense form, but even a laptop is a compromise from a full studio machine. And to be clear, my suggestion above about a touch interface for desktops is a separate device. You'd still have a monitor, but then you'd have a second screen AS the keyboard. One is for input, the other is for viewing. So a keyboard is still there when you need it, but the interface changes based on what you're doing.
OK. TO WORK!!
The things that puzzles me is that so many who are so into this device are into the potential moreso than anything else. Not the devices or apps that shipping, but "what it may one day become", which seems backwards to me. I hardly think Apple needs early adopter patronage to stick with this OS and device long enough for it to get wherever they want to take it. You'd be just as well off waiting for it to get there, then dropping your coin on what is sure to be a much more capable piece of kit.
But that's why so many of us are early adopters, eh? Cool convo.
