It’s worth watching the whole thing – but if you’re really short of time watch from about 6 minutes in.  When he starts taking photos with his fingers, using a piece of paper as a laptop, playing pong on the metro train floor and moving text/spreadsheets from paper to screen and back it almost seems magical.  When it’s readily available it’s going to make the iPad look like old hat!
