I have spent hours looking for the perfect article that matches or at least parallels my first impression of the iPad. Many are laughing at the name; I say get over it. It really does not matter that people can and have made fun of it. I promise you that the humor of the name will be meaningless in just a few months, if not days.

The real question is, has Apple succeeded in making a new sector in the reading/Internet/mobile information market. My first impression is, yes they have. I have not held it, used it or know the true functionality of the device, but I am very impressed by what I saw today.

The real question is, what, if any, is the impact to the publishing industry. The answer is huge in my opinion – huge in the actual concept of the iPad as the first of a new generational type of reader. It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a computer, and it is an e-reader. It is actually all of the above.
