One day the iPad will be forgotten too.

Walking past the MePa Apple Store (complete with enormous iPad billboard on the roof) in New York today, I noticed a juxtaposition too good to miss. Just around the corner is this sign. 

The pitch:

SOUND SYSTEMS

COMMUNE PHONES

TELEVISION BOOSTERS

U.H.F. CONVERTER

High Fidelity AMPLIFIERS

AM - FM TUNER

On a day when people are still queuing to buy Apple’s latest unicorn, it is worth remembering that one day ‘iPad’ will also be nothing more than a faded sign on a wall somewhere, just one block from the latest hot thing.
