As we hit the third anniversary of the iPad's US launch and consider just how it's transformed the computing (and education) landscape, it's worth remembering what the prevailing tech/media view of it was at the time. Enjoy your 20:20 hindsight, and then remember that these are the same people telling us now how Apple has lost its touch, and how it needs to emulate Samsung to succeed.
The UK release of iPad didn't come until the end of May 2010, and I picked mine up on the first day. As I hit my own three-year anniversary using it, I'll be considering just how it changed my own computing patterns, and how it's evolved over that time. Tune in soon for more, including a special podcast on three years with the iPad.
