Apple's Vision

This is the kind of usage pattern Apple hopes to see:

All the PCs and laptops are basically not being used. All the Macs are not being used. All have been powered off. Everyone in the family is waiting for their turn at the iPad.
I don't think I'll be buying any more desktops going forward. I don't think I'll even be buying any more laptops going forward.

The big thing that a lot of tech folks don't get is that we aren't the target audience here. Apple built this for everyone else - the part they cast us in was "developer".

I know this much - since my wife got ahold of her iPad, her Windows PC has been sitting unused. She still uses her Macbook, but it looks like the iPad is getting more use. I still need a laptop, but I accept the fact that I'm an outlier in this :)

Let's just calm down about this and wait until the "cool new toy" effect wears off. It could be that the iPad is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but that'll take some time to determine, and we're not able to do that just yet.
