Steve talked about PCs as the trucks and busses of our working world dedicated to the heavy lifting of computing and work but looked at the iPad as the family car of the post PC era. The device we choose for personal adventures along the technology highway.
In the last quarter of 2011 Apple sold more iPads than any computing company sold of their entire range of computers. The world has embraced Steve's post PC device.
I was in conversation with a teacher who was bothered that she had not used the iPads in her classrooms in 2012. She wanted to assure me that “as soon as the dust settles,” she will be back choosing apps and designing programs to use the iPad. I asked if girls had just stopped bringing iPads to lessons since she was not using them.
