How We Blew it with the iPad Predictions

I was looking at the final details of the iPad and comparing it to all the speculation beforehand. It seems the biggest mistake with all of the predictions was in focus. Everyone was looking for revolutionary features and ignoring what Apple does best, sweat the details. There were so many wheels spinning about exotic features, very few people thought about the simple things that need to be done right.

The iPad isn’t revolutionary in its feature set. It doesn’t look at my face to figure out who is driving it or incorporate expensive OLED screens. The iPad is revolutionary in execution. It takes the tablet features that never worked before and makes them work. It’s obvious now.
