Who is this guy and what is he holding in his hands?

There are two types of people.  There are those who believe, rather passionately, that Apple products are better.  Much better.  And then there are those who don't like to consider themselves Kool-Aid drinkers and consider the "Apple is Better" mantra to be nothing more than expert marketing induced hype.  Regarding Apple products, I became a Born Again in 2002, but that's a story for another post.

I've written on this blog (example, here) that the new iPad is a marvel, an innovation and... more importantly... a change agent.  That it will help usher in an entirely new digital era in ways that are different and even more striking than the manner in which personal computers and cellphones have done so thus far.

My own long awaited iPad arrives on Friday and I'll keep you posted on whether this really is a game changer or not, based on my own personal experiences and the anticipated quest to make this replace paper (and newspapers, books, ipods, magazines, and eventually, a laptop).

So, who is that gentleman holding an iPad in the photo above?  It's Russian President Medvedev.  For more insight, I think you'll find the following video to be quite illuminating:

  1. Just discovered your blog—Yeah, even my pastor preaches from an iPad. My son and I are learning Objective C. It's publishing's future, I think.
