“Pupils and teachers will never want a device that’s harder to use than the iPad”

Some pretty safe bets from Fraser Speirs. If we limit the scope of those predictions to education, I mostly agree with him. However, I think that for the foreseeable future we will continue to need more complicated and powerful devices. My colleague who teaches the CAD program at my school could not achieve the same results with iPads. His class will continue to need desktops.
