Today, I don’t own an iPad. Last week, I had no intention of buying one anytime soon. The Wall Street Journal, All Things Digital, D8 Conference, has seriously cracked my resolve.
Lisa Gold, showed me her iPad a few weeks ago, and talked about her experience with the iPad:
“When I use it, I don’t have email apnea because I sit or recline comfortably, I’m relaxed, and I breathe. When I’m sitting at my desk, in a chair, staring at my computer screen and clutching my mouse, I’m physically uncomfortable and I often find myself holding my breath and feeling slightly anxious. Instead of forcing my body to adapt to the demands of the computer, iPad adapts to me and the different ways I want to use it. My iPad can’t completely replace my computer, but I find myself using iPad more and the computer less. And it has made me much more aware of how using a computer affects my body.”
