Dear iPad, please save us…

Reading Real Time News on iPad. Unread Newspap...

My Reader is crammed with iPad articles at the moment. More than I can shake a stick at, let alone read, no matter what format you offer them to me.

As we all know, the iPad will save all newspapers / destroy all newspapers / is the new Kindle / is a bit rubbish as an eReader ad infinitum, ad nauseum…

Cartoon by Brian Fairrington, caglecartoons.com

* Update (02/06/10) I remembered about this post when I spotted the same cartoon on the Editors Weblog today. Disappointingly, they chose not to link to Brian Fairrington’s site – in fact, they seem to have just screengabbed it; I wonder if that was to avoid the automated link code? It may be a small thing but it’s seriously irritated me.
In slightly more cheery news, I bought an iPad four days ago. It may not be the saviour of my industry but – for what it’s worth – I think it is utterly wonderful.
