iPad definitivamente estagnou e não vai ser aquele assombro que parecia. Matou netbooks mas foi só (e ainda existe uma provável volta destes sob a alcunha de Chromebooks e as alternativas baseadas no Win8 free).

Fato: ainda que tenhamos pessoas trabalhando e criando em cima do iPad, estes são exceções. As pessoas usam tablets para consumir conteúdo (vídeo, leituras, notícias, jogos casuais, fotos e mídias sociais). Estas atividades não exigem muito poder computacional; um iPad de primeira geração consegue fazer uns 80% dessas coisas numa boa. E um iPad 2 faz praticamente 100%.

O dilema agora é tornar o iOS mais complexo para suportar mais cenários de uso (como por exemplo nos recentes rumores de rodar duas apps lado a lado), sob a pena de tornar o iPhone mais complexo, algo indesejável. Algo que ninguém quer.

Os próximos anos prometem.

"People often ask me what the difference is between evangelist and salesperson. Here’s the answer. A salesperson has his or her own best interests at heart: commission, making quota, closing the deal. An evangelist has the other person’s best interests at heart: “Try this because it will help you.” Keep this difference in mind, and you’ll be on the right track."

Mais uma simples idéia que eu gostaria de ter tido antes. Basicamente um resumo das abas abertas ao longo do dia, com uma descrição concisa, curta como se fosse um tweet. Uma proposta alternativa ao formato linkblog. Estou curtindo há alguns dias, e acho que ainda farei algo neste formato.
