I decided to run Techmeme.com through Wordle on the day after Steve Jobs announced what is apparently “the most important thing I’ve ever done”. I’d bet he didn’t actually say that but if he did, he’d be happy with the fact that iPad is dominating the blogosphere if we use Techmeme as our barometer. Dig a little deeper of course and the coverage is very mixed but in terms of free publicity, they did pretty well.
I’m going to hold off any public views on the iPad til I get to actually play with one. Besides, my views would only drown in the sea of voices above! One thing I will comment on is the iPad promotional video. There is something ever so slightly creepy about it. I’m a self confessed fan of Jonathan Ive but I don’t get that whole “magical” thing he starts with. I mean c’mon dude, it doesn’t exceed our ability to understand it.
