On my iPad I don’t “consume content”. I read, I watch, I share, I learn.
I think that about sums it up.
Those are the things living is about in this day and age. We really don’t do things only in order to survive, a lot of what we do is try to discover our true potential and to expand our thinking.
If we had to kill wild game so that we could eat then the iPad wouldn’t help us much at all, but when self-actualization is the goal then the iPad becomes a powerful tool.
