Alan Kay, iPad & the Dynabook

I read long ago Alan Kay’s vision for the dynabook.  In this interview (h/t Tuaw.com) with Time, he levies some criticisms toward the iPad for some of the limits it places on users and shows how they are mostly bogus.  The limits are there because Apple wants the control.  I remember when they had a stronger education focus.  In any case the interview is really good read the whole thing.
