So it hasn’t taken me much time to speculate on some of the uses of the iPad. While there’s going to be a ton of app related goodness coming down the pipe in terms of cool things to interact with, I’m thinking more about the low fi potential. In terms of online content I think there’s a great opportunity for dynamic content to be wrapped up in a pdf and stored on an iPad for future reading when wifi or 3G services aren’t available. A pdf would be easy to click around and make for a pretty decent reading experience. The great thing is that the pdf doesn’t even have to look like a piece a paper which will open up some opportunities to display type friendly content on a digital screen without worrying if a font is stored a computer. I suspect that publishers will shy away from pdf’s because of their ease of distribution for free, but for people that are more concerned about getting an idea out there, it could be something to watch out for. I know I’m already thinking about this new PDF format for Design Notes.
