07 Feb Charlie Rose Talks iPad
Thursday night’s edition of the Charlie Rose Show brought together David Carr, Michael Arrington, and Walt Mossberg to discuss the iPad. All three, Having used the iPad briefly, talk about its forum and functionality.
Though we’ve already heard Walt Mossberg’s review of the iPad in earlier posts, it’s interesting to see all three of these influential technology thought leaders-Mossberg from the Wall Street Journal; David Carr, a columnist for the New York Times; and TechCrunch’s big chief Michael Arrington—discussing Apple’s upcoming device in one forum. And what emerges is that all of them, to varying degrees, are excited about the iPad’s promise.
At one point, David Carr says, “I think there’s a revolution in the fact that you lean back and read something,” and this, the possibility of a more casual version of computing, seems to be the iPad’s greatest promise in the minds of all three journalists. According to TechCruch who provided this video, after reading a 1994 Rolling Stone interview with Steve Jobs, it’s clear that Jobs is at his most passionate when he has locked in on a revolution to champion change.
