David Hockney on the iPad

“The iPad is far more subtle, in fact it really is like a drawing pad. They will sell by the million. It will change the way we look at everything from reading newspapers to the drawing pad.

“It can be anything you want it to be. This is the nearest we have got to seeing what I would call a universal machine.

    'He’d have thrown the damn thing against the wall in frustration at the lousy wi-fi connection in Arles….He certainly wouldn’t show up at an exhibition with a custom made ‘I Pad pocket’. As they say in Mr. Hockney’s native England – He’d have turned up ‘p*ss*d’ on rough as old nails absinthe and told them to 'all f*** off’"…..more on the Hockney I Pad
