iPad and Designing

If you haven’t heard, last week Apple announced it’s “revolutionary” iPad last week. Basically an iPhone, Kindle-sized. Apple claims it’s filling the gap between an iPhone and a MacBook, though I, among others, am not sure that gap needed to be filled. I’ve already seen lots of accessories for the device, including kickstands and keyboards, which makes me question again, why anyone would really buy this instead of a laptop. Apple has thousands of loyal consumers, me included, but this seems very unnecessary.

Ok now that my opinions of the iPad are out of the way, Graphic Design Blender has a cool little write up about how the iPad will change the way sites are designed, from vertical and horizontal style sheets to bigger navigation buttons, since navigating is done with fingers rather than mouse pointers. Only time will tell if the iPad is a success for Apple, and if it is, I’m sure that many sites cater to the device, until then, we’ll see.
