The hardware is so understated — it’s just a screen, really —
and because you manipulate objects and interface elements so
smoothly and directly on the screen, the fact that you’re using
an iPad falls away. You’re using the app, whatever it may be,
and while you’re doing so, the iPad is that app. Switch to
another app and the iPad becomes that app. If that’s not magic,
I don’t know what is.
That’s the best description of the iPad experience I’ve seen yet.
