Here is an interesting article by Jason Snell describing his experience writing on the iPad.
He makes a couple of intriguing propositions:
1. That because he needs to slow down when writing on the iPad (as opposed to his lap top where he can type a 120 words a minute) his writing is better. He pays more attention to the craft as his fingers must adjust to the speed of his brain.
2. That ironically, the iPad offers less distractions when he is writing. And though it might be slower typing, he actually gets more work done. Though he doesn’t come right out and say it, I suspect it is because he does not have the toolbar open with the email icon bouncing, or several windows open at the same time where you can always see if you have mail, or if someone posted something to Facebook or…well, you choose your own distraction.
What do you think?
