Years ago when I first heard that Apple was developing a tablet I had dreams of drawing directly on the screen. I already had a Wacom Cintiq but it was a monster: the screen was dim and the cables and boxes coming out the thing made it cumbersome and ugly.

Now there is Paper, the best reason I’ve seen to actually buy an iPad.
