I've mentioned across these forums that I am really excited for the iPad as a "digital album". I figured I'd elaborate on my thoughts and see if others are excited for these similar possibilities. In this age of digital photography, more and more pictures are being taken and shared via email, facebook, flickr, and so on. The only time I print photos are to insert in Christmas cards, fill a new frame or give to my grandmother who doesn't have a computer. There really hasn't been a good way to share and view these digital photos in person that is as enjoyable as looking at prints/albums. It's not much fun to crowd people around a desktop computer screen or pass around an opened laptop awkwardly. Every set-top box in my house (PS3, DVR, Wii, TVs etc) has options to view photos/video but trying to interact with those photos means someone with a remote pressing a button and waiting for the images to load. I look at the iPad as a much more enjoyable way to share/enjoy. When the iPhone first came out, flicking through my photos was always one of the first things I would show people. And unlike traditional photo albums, you could play your home movies as well. With the arrival of the iPad, we get that same interaction as the iPhone, but we add in a 10" screen. Additionally when synced to a Mac you can browse by events or albums, select friends and family via facial recognition or browse by your travels on a map. Plus when your done with the iPad, you can dock it on your sofa table and turn it into a beautiful digital photo frame. All this doesn't even take into consideration what may be lurking in the minds of developers as new ways to share/view/edit our collections. I think the iPad ups the ante and is the perfect digital album.
