How the iPad will change the internet


On the upper photo you can see Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Google CEO Eric Schmidt. So what are they talking about? The person who took the photo said they were talking about web content. I think Eric is absolutely aware that the iPad and the iPhone are a true threat to Google. Why? They change the way you start web browsing. On the PC you opened your browser and went to a front page like Yahoo or MSN or searched something on your browser search box or in Google directly. On the iPad you tap on the icon of a news paper or a service to get to your destination. You tap on a Mail icon to check your Mail etc. … so you don’t really need Google as your starting point anymore. In my opinion the iPad will get tons of low-price-clones running Windows or Linux and in the end there will be a new device in most homes, a tablet computer for surfing the Internet.
