Amazing video: what a small child does with the iPad: it's a playing tool!
There is so much to be learned from this video - be sure to watch it. Clearly, the iPad (and hopefully, many other cool tablets that will follow in its wake now) is an altogether different way of 'computing'. GUI becomes NUI (natural user interface), at last. Finger-sweeping on a touch screen, and literally playing with the screen and the interface and the apps - definitely not a work tool as much as a reading + watching + consumption ++ playing tool. And yes, agreed, the iPad is a walled garden, it is Control in a very shameless form - and it still rocks. Confusing, maybe, but not enough to disregard or destroy or even. ...blend it.
