Technology only works if it’s not in your face. It needs to take care of the needs of the user with subtlety and finesse. It should be so advanced that users shouldn’t notice that it is there. This is the kind of the technology that the iPad 2 offers you.
Why don’t you realize that you are using the iPad?
Well the reason lies in the essential thinness of the iPad, which means you don’t notice that you are actually using it. Weighing as little as 1.33 pounds and 0.34 inch thin, it makes for comfortable use, ensuring that you can use it whenever and wherever you are. So, whether you want to surf the web, watch a movie or read books, you can do so easily without any problems with extraordinary levels of convenience.
Tracking Your Move
The iPad has a built in accelerometer with which you can rotate the iPad to suit the view that you want, whether its portrait, landscape or even upside down. The great part about the accelerometer is that it gives the iPad an inbuilt adjustment mechanism, which means the iPad automatically, adjusts whatever you are doing to fits its display. What this means is that it helps your optimize your view, whether you are watching a movie, reading a book, or performing some other activity.
The Great Triad
Yes, the accelerometer is definitely a wonderful technology, but what is even better is that it forms a great triad with two other essential functionalities of the iPad, namely the gyroscope and the compass. iOS developers can design and develop wonderful apps that offer features that align with the functionality of the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. So, the apps can sense each and every twist, turn, tilt and move of the user. Intrepid and astute developers make use of this technology to bring forth some epic iPad gaming applications.
The iPad offers you something called video mirroring, which means you can interact and share your views and information better with a bigger audience. So, if you want to share a presentation with a boardroom or even a classroom, you can engage the audience better. With your iPad you can teach an entire classroom, give a presentation to a boardroom or turn your living room into an entertainment hub.
If you think that this is the be all and end all of all the unique features of the iPad, you are wrong, the list is virtually endless and you have to stop at some point. But, going through these tips will give you an idea about why the iPad 2 is such a bit success.
