A buddy at work walked into the store (AT&T I think) on launch day and picked up an iPad Mini. Of course he had to bring it in to work for all the geeks to ogle. Everything about the Mini is exactly what you expect except for one thing – this thing is impossibly thin. I’m keeping my iPad 3 for the larger screen, and I’m not trading in my Kindle Fire HD for the Mini due to my Amazon content, but even being a gadget guy the Mini seems like it’s magically thin.
Was it Asimov that said, “Technology, sufficiently advanced, is indistinguishable from magic…”
All these devices would have been considered magic even 20 years ago.
