Like many folks, I watched the launch of the iPad 2 through Engadget’s live blogging of the event. While Engadget’s coverage was first rate, I still like to watch the video of Steve Job’s presentation which I couldn’t do while at work so it had to wait until I was home from the gym that evening. Steve Jobs put on another brilliant presentation – his usual thorough execution – but one point of his about us being in a Post PC World didn’t strike me until I watched the video of the day’s events online.
Do we actually live in a Post PC World? I previously wrote about whether or not the iPad will replace my laptop and I can see the parity between the iPad and the laptop PC already beginning in my own work. However, in some use cases, the iPad could replace a laptop for some consumer or light technology users.
