From the Wall Street Journal online: iPad Economics, or, How to Sound Smart This Weekend.

I think the article is good, but it forgets to talk about how apps are complements to the iPad, and these apps therefore affect iPad demand. Here’s a video to refresh your memory:

(Note that it makes sense to talk about the existence of apps in the first place as a price decrease, since the price of something that doesn’t exist is technically infinite.)

    is an ipad really necesary? apple is just creating a need out of thin air knowing that people will follow the hype… the new york times is bugging me with all the feature articles about ipad, the first impressions and so on… none of this devices are gonna solve our lives or make them worthy. They should stop selling them like they are… in case of an earthquake, flood, any natural disaster light goes out and all this technology is worthless and I’m not going all last days on you guys, just saying that the ipad is not so crucial ¬¬

    see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d
    genuinely appreciate it.

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.

    But just imagine if you added some great
    images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this
    site could certainly be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Fantastic blog!

    In their deck, the Fool represents more of the potential of the blank slate of humanity, and our inherent possibilities for
    growth than the foolishness village idiot of earlier decks.
    With what can be found for the enthusiast, My – Space tarot groups show that the king of
    social networking is still in the building. If placed with a pentacle,
    success and reward financially will cause great happiness.
