Apple iPad Makes It To Time’s ‘50 Best Inventions of 2010′ List

ipadHere’s one more reason to brag about your iPad. It’s part of the elite list of products that were featured in TIME magazine’s list of “50 Best Inventions Of 2010”.

The iPad is revolutionary in terms of being the first color Tablet with multitouch and full fledged web browsing ,  but this is an elite list, which makes the honor even bigger.

From Time: "How does Apple keep out-inventing the rest of the tech industry? Often, it’s by reinventing a product category that its competitors have given up on. In theory, the iPad is merely a follow-up to such resoundingly unpopular slate-style computers as Microsoft’s Tablet PC. But Apple is the first company that designed finger-friendly hardware and software from scratch rather than stuffing a PC into a keyboardless case. When it calls the results “magical” and “revolutionary,” it’s distorting reality only slightly. One analyst says the iPad is the fastest-selling non phone gizmo in consumer-electronics history."

The second invention to make it to the “Technology” section of the list also has an Apple connection. It’s an iPad app called Flipboard that is featured as the second entry in the list of the top inventions of 2010. Flipboard presents various social media network updates in a magazine style layout. This means you can look at those Facebook pictures and comments in a completely different way! Congratulations Apple!
