A little while ago I thought that Apple had slipped up with the iPad. Based on what I’d read, it looked too big, too heavy, not a laptop replacement, not a Kindle replacement, neither one thing nor the other. Even so, knowing myself quite well, I guessed I’d soon be an owner of the fatally flawed device.

So it proved. A couple of weeks ago I surrendered to gadget lust. A meaningful relationship has since developed.

This blog is no longer updated but it remains open as an archive.

I have been the FT's Washington columnist since April 2007. I moved from Britain to the US in 2005 to write for the Atlantic Monthly and the National Journal after 20 years working at the Economist, most recently as deputy editor. I write mainly about the intersection of politics and economics.
