iPad or iFad: How do you Know if an Idea Will Work?

The iPad — the newest creation from Steve Jobs and the Apple crew — debuted this past week with all the fanfare and publicity that a politician could only dream of. And it looks pretty cool. The iPad isn’t a phone or a laptop; it’s a third device that can be used to send e-mails, go online and read books and magazines. I’m not sure if it is a necessary device or just something that would be really neat to have. Sitting on your couch or in your favorite chair, you pull out the iPad and just do whatever it is you do with the iPad. Will the iPad be something that changes the way we work, play and get our information? Or will this new endeavor just be another thing we buy that will collect dust? That’s the thing with new stuff: We never know what the outcome will be.
