true multi-tasking is a beneficial feature beyond doing it just to do it. Do 8 to 10 things at once? I don't try to do 8 to 10 things at once regardless of what I'm doing so I think that example is kind of silly, on a cell phone or otherwise.

But doing 2 to 3 things at once can be very useful.

As an example:

I'm listening to music on Pandora because I think its one of the coolest things to ever happen since sliced bread.

I get a IM message from Lisa wondering what time John's flight gets in.

I say let me check, open up the airplane app (forget its name) getting the flight info from the instant messaging (or maybe opening up yet another card and getting the info from an email), moving seamlessly between the two (all the while listening to Pandora).

That wouldn't take place without the card system. So yeah, it has definite real-world benefit without having to be a "power-user".

Does it take a little time to get used to? Maybe, but not much. imo its a very user-friendly system.
