Faster Horses

Another solid post by Drew Breunig on tablets, faster horses, cars and tablets:

But tablets are more dynamic than cars, whose use case is relatively clear, and their flexiblity allows for much habitual misuse. Some are not sure what the iPad is used for and are engaging it like a netbook. Others create apps to emulate existing tools. It’s as if the Model T was released and people kept adding carriage components.

No surprise I’m a fan of this line of thinking.
