When technology stops being technology.

Via Seth Godin:

I saw a two-year old kid (in diapers, in a stroller), using an iPod Touch today. Not just looking at it, but browsing menus and interacting. This is a revolution, guys.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The iPad is often written off, but when I saw it announced I believed that it was the single most important advance in computing technology since I started working with computers many years ago.

The iPhone and the iPad have ushered in an era where technology has ceased to be technology and has become a tool we use in our everyday lives – casual, intuitive tools that do just what the average person wants them to do.And they’re comfortable for all age groups, from the very young, to the very old.

  1. My son turns 4 in August, and has been actively using a touch for 2 years. He got touchpads and keyboards both pretty quickly too but it took him until about 6 months ago to figure out how mouses work.

    We got a playstation at Christmas and he figured out how a controller works but is only just on the cusp of figuring out how to point wiimotes at the tv to make the cursor move around.
