Shrinking electronics and the popularity of smartphones has brought us to the beginning of the tablet age. Tablets are incredibly handy devices for their portability and quick web access. They’re not “laptop replacements” per se, but more of a supplement. I would liken a tablet to a microwave — it will never replace your oven, but you end up using it more often than your oven because it gets things done faster and more conveniently. This new found convenience is turning the Internet and interface design in general to a new direction and opening up technology to a whole new group of people.
