Apple's iPad: Tool, toy, or trap?

Washington Post Faster Forward Blog, April 13, 2010

The iPad isn't ready to take a laptop's or a netbook's place—even if its touchscreen and speedy processor help it do some tasks better than those devices, writes Rob Pegoraro in this blog posting on the Washington Post's Web site. It's too hefty and bulky to wipe e-book readers off the map, he says, and it suffers from the sort of glitches one doesn’t expect to see in an Apple product. But the most serious criticism of the iPad goes much further—the argument that Apple's tight control of the App Store unforgivably infringes on your computing liberties, he adds.
