New iPad: Post PC Era

Today I briefly tried "new iPad"... It is "classy", "perfect" and a bit heavy ("solid feel").
If you can't buy a Mercedes yet, with iPad you can get feel of what a good product feels like.

Here is what Jeff Atwood, (co)creator of Stack Overflow, writes about "new iPad"
Coding Horror: Welcome to the Post PC Era

...That's why I didn't just buy the iPad 3 (sorry, The New iPad).
I bought two of them. And I reserve the right to buy more!
Don't take my word for it. Consider what screen reading pioneer, and inventor of ClearType, Bill Hills has to say about it:

"The 3rd Generation iPad has a display resolution of 264ppi. And still retains a ten-hour battery life (9 hours with wireless on). Make no mistake. That much resolution is stunning. To see it on a mainstream device like the iPad - rather than a $13,000 exotic monitor - is truly amazing, and something I've been waiting more than a decade to see."

A very nice visualization of data, from Graphics Director of Fortune Magazine

His blog has plenty of inspiring data visualization designs for Fortune Magazine...
There are also links to many related "INFORMATION DESIGN BOOKS"...

It is interesting, and correct, that Amazon is categorized and a technology company, not as a store...
