you finish the sentence.


example.

The iPad blows. Steve Jobs knows his fan base has such a massive hard on for anything he puts out. so he resizes an ipod touch, slaps a $500 starting price tag on the thing and changes the "o" to an "a"

is really cool looking but probably has little practical application to most of our lives.

The iPad will be as prevalent and relevant as the Segway. You'll see it every once in awhile, give it a stare down, then go on with your day. Those who own it will go 'out of there way' to use it.

Exactly... are people gonna carry their iPad suitcase around? The **** is 10 inches. This is one of the most useless ideas I've ever seen. Basically the only advantage over their other products is it has faster wireless internet.


Wow.

Once it supports flash it'll be worth it, but until then no way.

I don't think it's coming out for apple devices. Mac has some stance against adobe for some reason (has to do with permission rights or some bull). flash is coming to the Android mobile OS though - I think they said late 2010.

The only thing that would make me think about buying this is if they start coming out with all the textbooks I need for it. Right now my iphone works great for surfing the web on the go and my lap top serves perfectly for watching movies or anything else.

... will never support flash and will be the down fall of apple. They have finally gone too far, and no matter what apple does someone always ends up doing it better for a fraction of the price. Only apple elitists will be flaunting these in the faces of those who don't - and most likely don't care.
