The iPad has been described as the biggest cultural phenomenon since The Beatles. As the most important launch in Apple's history -- bigger than the Mac, iPod or iPhone; the most important cultural phenomenon of this generation.
John Doerr, the nation's leading venture capitalist writes: "It’s hard to imagine that once there was no Internet. Just 15 years ago there was no browser, no web point-and-click. It was 1994, and Steve Jobs had left Apple. Steve was making Toy Story, and object-oriented software for Next.
The rest of the 90’s were a ONCE-in-a-lifetime experience. Entrepreneurs created the Web, and great ventures – Netscape, Amazon, Ebay, Google, and others. And they changed our lives. Silicon Valley became the Florence of the New, Networked Economy. The advent of the iPad feels like deja-vu, like it’s happening all over again. Not once, but TWICE-in-a-lifetime."
