iPad's impact on productivity

John Naughton is road-testing an iPad and comments on how its 'one-app-at-a-time' interface limits productivity when writing his blog. A fluid interaction on 'a real computer', of selecting a source, highlighting it and pulling it into Wordpress for publication now becomes a very clunky sequence of opening applications, cutting and pasting etc. As Naughton comments, the experience highlights Apple's focus on the iPad as a tool for consumption.
