  1. I’ve enjoyed Apple for sometime, they produce gadgets that is aesthetically gorgeous while working like a charm. That can’t be said about alot of companies, it’s usually one or the other. Tech businesses don’t usually take aesthetics seriously like Apple. With that said I’ve got to say that I’m anxious about the new Tablet. One thing I question though, is it too soon? I’m afraid that this may be ahead of our time. What do you think?
