In light of Apple's "miss" with iPad sales, I keep kicking around the idea that the iPad turned out not to be that big of an innovation.  Clearly, the iPhone was innovative and kicked off a whole new mode of computing. No dispute there.

The iPad however, based on usage stats and sales figures, is the computer you use on the couch while you watch TV.  You're doing the same things you were doing on your netbook or laptop.  You might be doing even less, because of the poor ergonomics of "working" on an iPad.

I don't blame Apple for the hype, so much the lazy headline seeking tech press, filled with people who only barely understand technology, but are impressed with shiny things.
