What new and old questions do media technologies raise regarding the impact of media on society?
Summary of Topic:
The iPad has innovated new avenues for media to be viewed, shared, and created. The iPad has created a platform for mobile cloud computing, as well as an infrastructure for mobile apps, beyond what existed already from the smartphone market. The iPad has now been on the market for close to 5 years, and its impact is still being felt in almost every work sector, the most prominent being education. Through integrating a camera and audio recorder into the device, as well as allowing for touch screen technology, the iPad allows users to experience media in places never before thought of, as well as allowing users to generate multi-media content easier than ever.
