Are You The iPad’s Orson Welles?

Time’s Managing Editor: iPad Content Awaits ‘Its Orson Welles’

Mr. Stengel acknowledges that early iPad content may not meet the hype. He compared it to the era after sound first came into motion pictures. For a while many movies were more like filmed plays, until directors really learned to take advantage of the opportunities of the medium. For the iPad, too, “the medium is waiting for its Orson Welles,” Stengel said.
