Proof of How Deeply Tablets Have Already Penetrated…


My friend David just pointed me toward some of the best proof of just how deeply tablets have already penetrated. (Or should I say… TABLET… singular)

Take a look at this shot form the New York Times homepage… see something funny?


Yes, as David pointed out the text says TAP not CLICK.

TAP as in on an iPad…

TAP as in TAP using the Livescribe Paper Tablet.

TAP as in… I don’t need no stinking mouse…

  1. I think you’re missing that this is an advertisement for a *pen* and has nothing to do with tablets at all.


  2. No I get that it is an ad for the Livescribe Pen Tablet function of the Echo smartpen, and by the way love the Pen Tablet application on my Livescribe Pen, but I truly don’t think the ad would make nearly as much sense to the majority of people pre-iPad.

    Maybe I’m wrong, but “tap” instead of “click” makes SOOOO much more sense to people now than it did 9 months ago.
