Om caught up with Fake Steve Jobs (Steve Dan Lyons) and got his opinion on the launch of the Apple iPad today.

A tad bit of not so safe for work language is used…you’ve been warned.

  1. When iWork was on stage I nearly fell asleep. Other journalists bacame calm, too – it felt like a Microsoft conference (similar to the CES one) at that point.
    Taking Steve’s introduction into account where the iPad has to be best (better than the iPhone/MacBook) in what it does, I really didn’t see the necessity for the iWork apps.

  2. The point of the iWork apps so that you can attend a meeting, NOT bring your laptop, and still give your presentation. Or, you can do a few hours of real work (spreadsheet or word processor) in the hotel room where you are stuck until your flight the next morning. Can’t do this with the iPhone.

  3. … But then that same business user would definitely like to have a front facing camera to do a video chat back to the kids at home… Pretty surprising they didn’t include a camera!

  4. Big surprise, Fake Steve Jobs acts like a jerk that totally misses the point, why am I not surprised.

    iWork = Great for attending meetings/giving presentations/checking documents while travelling. Not word-processing as your main device.

    And why do so many people seem to miss what is gonna be revolutionary about this device. He even mentioned the apps, and totally forgot the app store and the fact that third party developers will make apps for it. Did he forget that Apple’s biggest asset is the community?

  5. I actually agree that it was a letdown. And the best way to look at it (at this point at least) is as a Kindle that does other stuff. A laptop is also great for attending meetings/giving presentations/checking documents while traveling. In fact, what can this do that my laptop can’t do better? Run iPhone apps? I have an iPhone. Read a magazine? When did I last do that offline? Maybe I’m missing the point, but I’m not excited.

  6. I can’t watch the video because my iPod touch doesn’t support Flash

    1. like the millions of iPod Touch users, you should count yourself lucky. Nothing to see really.

  7. What features iPad is missing?? « Ladydanday's Blog Thursday, January 28, 2010

  8. Apple has added a product category when people wanted to see categories consolidated instead. I don’t need *another* gadget; I want *one* gadget. I want bluetooth telephony, VoIP, simple cloud computing solutions on a quality ‘netbook’, a GPS and an iPod on a single device. Apple knows this, but why should they cannibalize all these other products until they have burned in their new processor and solidified the business model? They wouldn’t. Maybe in a year or two, all the holes will be filled, but at a more laptop-level price point.

  9. Did they really catch up with Steve Lyons? Because that guy looks a lot like Dan Lyons.

    1. Doh. Got a little Steve-happy while I was typing. Fixed. :)

    Yes, he does look a lot like Dan Lyons. He even pretends to be Fake Steve Jobs like Dan Lyons does so he must be the Fake Steve Lyons pretending to be the Fake Steve Jobs while the real Dan Lyons continues to be the original Fake Steve Jobs.

    I don’t know if there’s anyone out there pretending to be the Fake Steve Lyons, though?
