I never liked being called "Jack of all trades" because the assumption that follows is "Master of none." In reality, I consider myself to be a Renaissance man, capable of performing well in multiple fields, such as programming, marketing, design, teaching, and writing. This has served me well as an entrepreneur. The iPad is in a similar position. The iPad may not be the best eBook reader because it doesn't use e-Ink which aids screen legibility and battery life, but it's pretty darn good. The iPad may not accept DVDs or SD cards, which my current portable video player does, but it's pretty darn good. The iPad might not be the best video game platform because it lacks physical buttons, but it's pretty darn good.
