The rise of the iPad became that much more interesting this week as sales numbers from Apple’s quarterly earnings poured in.There’s been plenty of clear and concise analysis done over the last few days, so I will stay way from that.

This fits so well into Gap International’s reality-possibility matrix. They were high in reality, and as their reality shrunk and newer forms of media competed with them in their market, they tried and tried to get back to high reality.

Thinking outside of your automatic state is necessary when you’re in crisis mode. And this story proves that.
