A MegaAge breakfast with iPad 3

Breakfast with iPad 3
The iPad 3 with its high resolution display is the first MegaAge mobile computer, one that is providing a Hi-Fi experience. My iPad arrived mid March and the digital life migrated into it. This iPad is my fourth one and a completely natural part of my life. I use it for business as well as pleasure and it follows me everywhere. The Laptop has been relagated to crunch tool. In fact I feel that the Mac feel old. The newest of the Macs at home is the Mac Mini and upgrading it last fall was a real dissapointment, everyone thought it was a slow laggard. I decided to rescue the situation with a boost of RAM to 8GB, luckily it helped, it probably also wants a solid state drive. What really blows my mind is I have about 1.8M more pixels on the iPad compared to my Macbook Air and it does not feel sluggish.

MegaAge is the first hi-fidelity digital era, bringing massive boost in quality of content and quality of experience. We want MegaAge experiences. The first ones emerging were HD movies, and now you expect to see movies and TV programmes in HD. MegaAge content should be enjoyed on big screens, in screens bigger is better, 10 years ago 32" was a big TV and now this would be 55" The latest Samsung and LGs are also going MegaAge with resolution. In a not too distant future we look at 100" being big.

Digital cameras and camcorders are pushing into 20 Mega pixels and most shoot HD 1080p video. The newest smartphones have leaped into the mega age. Nokia with a 41MP image sensor, producing amazing images, at full resolution is 10MB. Why should we not enjoy stunning images, video and content. This kind of leaps create experience transformations. The mega age devices challenge print for the first time. There is no reason why digital should be worse than print.

At the core of mega age is the simple concept of More is better. There is a very famous experiment with seagull chicks where scientist painted two red dots on a wooden stick instead of the single one on the beek of the seagull. The result is that he chicks pick at the two dot stick with frenetic intensity, much more than at the beek of the seagull. If the seagulls brain works like this, why would ours not. Professor Nigel Spivey beautifully demonstrated the intrest for more and exaggeration in his seminal documentary How Art Made the World. One of the senior designers at Fjord, Ossi Alho, captured this beautifully, when you enter MegaAge there is no way back. I have to agree with him.

The MegaAge comes with a darkside, the file sizes are exploading past the capability of storage and network. Couple weeks ago I was making some MegaAge slides, in fact 17 of them, it was a little report on the Mobile World Congress. It had rich detailed photography, it became a monsterous 220Mb file. The end product was a 1.5Mb pdf, what a loss. I had done something better, and delivered less. I wanted to give more, but I could not. Our networks, infrastructure of connectivity is not ready for MegaAge. Neither is our services, YouSendIt has a limit of sending 50MB files for free, and Gmail enables you to send 20MB in a mail. I could pay to send more via YouSendIt, but the business model is not following, I do not benefit from sending the higher res file. I suspect we will get network capacity problems in the mega age.

You might argue that MegaAge is nonsense, but lets look at more evidence evidence. The new Keynote on the iPad is 327 Mb where it was 110 Mb, the new Pages is 269 Mb compared to 95Mb. There seems to be a 3x size increase in visually rich apps if the apps take full advantage of the retina display and include high res content like video tutorials. If we assume that there is 4x as many pixels, one could argue that the digital magazines should also go MegaAge and boosting size to 2Gb for an issue of Wired.

Why should it be less, the raw material is anyway better. MegaAge is an age of more, more is more. More is better. You cannot argue with quality, no one wants to look at a low res photo if a high res version is available. The only rationale for lower res, would be to argue that it is art. Think of Instagram.

The iPad is now great video screen, enabling HD quality experience, the only problem is that 64GB is giving limited choice. Streaming is not an option on a mobile device hopping from base station to base station. My new iPad will become my photoeditor, a sort of sortstation for good images and bad ones, and then a bit of editing. Will be interesting to see if it has enough horse power to manage content in the MegaAge. But I suspect visual impact will trumph speed, storage and processing power, and hence the iPad 3 is the start of something new in computing. How exciting!

Hey Christian,

I know exactly what you mean by having an iPad as a completely natural part of your life.

And I think that Padlette (www.Padlette.com) is an accessory that makes it even more natural. I know you have the black one, but it's wrong color, right?

Pick up your fav color from the selection of 8, and I will change your black one into another one!
