A look at the software that makes the iPad a winner
Imagine if back in January of 1984, the release of the first Macintosh had been accompanied by over 150,000 applications—games, utilities, communications tools, you name it. The Mac would now be the pre-eminent personal computing platform on the planet.
Early in the morning of April 3rd, 2010, as the first eager Apple fans were picking up their iPads, the total number of available apps exceeded 150,000. Since most of these apps can run on the Apple's tablet, new iPad owners had immediate access to a huge library of creative and useful apps.
