Steve Jobs has a terrific quote about the true disruptive potential of the iPad:
When we were an agrarian nation, all cars were trucks. But as people moved more towards urban centers, people started to get into cars. I think PCs are going to be like trucks. Less people will need them. And this is going to make some people uneasy.
He wants to undermine PCs, but also Macs! Wow.
Here’s the ultimate status symbol: a red glowing ball for your iphone that costs $999.99! Yup, that’s what you get (and nothing else) when you buy the ‘i am rich’ application for the iPhone. And 8 people bought it before Steve Jobs yanked it from the app store. Curiosity + one-click purchasing can be very, very dangerous. Come on Steve- no sense of humor?
