Im sad seeing this people that extremely underestimating and making fun of Apple...I think apple made a huge step forward with IPad.



I am guessing that this makes you a complete and utter retard?

Explain to me, please, how this is a huge step forward, rather then a step backwards.

Regardless. There are still going to be plenty of buyers. For example, my older sister (college graduate) went to the store to "play" with the IPad. She sent my mom a text telling my mom how great it was. My mom asked "can it handle document creation?" My sister didn't know what that meant. When my mom explained. My sister responded "Why would I need to do that? I have a laptop for that?"

so there you have it, there are some people that just want it because it's "cool". Yet, they have no idea what it will help them do. This thing will sell.



Welcome to Apples marketing Scheme. Brainwashing.

I doubt it can handle document creation though (if its not already stated anywhere. I haven't looked up the ipad).



It will be the same document editor like is on the Iphone (Which is epic fail). It doesnt support multitasking so you can both open a document and browse the web to research. :|

Like buying one and beating the shit out of it? ha. Yes. Well, people have spent less money in stupid ways too. Someone on ebay sold an invisible dog for $60. There were SOOOOO many people that bid on it too, that's the sad thing. o.O

@Argue: I haven't used an iphone either so I wouldn't know what this document thing is. But not being able to multitask? That's stupid. Even the PSP lets you do that. Sadly not the DSi but well, it sorta can in a way o.O

I have an IPhone. there is NO WAY I'll ever use that thing for any real purpose. I use the notes feature more conveniently. Anyway, I'm not buying an IPad

I'll admit the concept is pretty cool. But I just don't at all see how it's worth as much as it is.

well,IPad and other apples products are really cool...but I gotta agree with you that they should be cheaper...but I guess thats impossible coz people buy at their price.

Thats what it deserves. Just another piece of uneeded technology added to a consumerist world.

I really don't get the point why people should do this stupid stuff..its such a waste of money...If they don't want it,they shouldve given it to someone else or not buy in the first place(if ever they bought it).

Dude. Microsoft loves Apples. Their flimsy 3% market share keeps Microsoft from being broken up for being a monopoly.

true that.

but in certain shares (definitely mp3 player market) i'm sure Microsoft wishes it had more share.
I think though Microsoft and Apple could definitely work together to battle Google on certain fronts - bing search as default on apple products for example.

That might not be far away. There were rumors that Apple was discussing with Microsoft about making Bing the default search engine and map provider on iPhones and iPod touches instead of Google. After checking out the Bing app (I'm surprised it even exists), I say no way because I love the nice clean look of Google and the last thing I want is wasted time waiting for the pages to load with scrolling backgrounds.

lol

I saw that the iPad came out...
so I went on HP.com and purchased an HP Mini with a 160GB HD, 1.66ghz processor, a nice resolution to run photoshop, a 92% size of a normal keyboard, a carrying case, 2 batteries, and then I went to newegg to buy extra memory..... My total came out to less than that PoS iPad and It weigh's <2.5lbs. I'm pretty pleased with my purchase :3

As for reading, I do that on my Sony Reader ^^; Ipad's screen is way too bright for reading & the battery would probably not last very long :/
