This weekend?s launch of Apple?s iPad in the US ? with an international debut expected later in the month ? will be a polarising moment. The television news will linger on the queues outside Apple stores, and fans will be seen drooling over these latest shiny objects of techno-lust. Doubters, meanwhile, will point out that general purpose tablet-style computers such as this have always bombed before ? and if the touch-screen interface is so revolutionary, why is Apple going to sell an old-fashioned keyboard to plug into it?
Inflation robs from the past, deflation robs from the future. Pick your poison.
