1. Good read on Successful Web Apps.
2. I disagree with his take on the iPad. I think he’s missing the point of the iPad (which isn’t mainly about the hardware). The killer function of the iPad, imho, is the touch full-screen apps… which are just starting to hit the AppStore. Developers see the opportunity, and you’ll start seeing iPad apps that will be jaw-dropping. Desktop/laptop apps won’t be able to compare because the potential of Touch OS by Apple is superior to Mac OS or Windows. Apps will make the iPad what it will be, and it’s just the beginning.
3. On his latest post, he links to a great report by Morgan Stanley on mobile internet trends. Really makes you think.
