I hope camera manufacturers start omitting mini-USB ports on their cameras now. Jeez guys! You can just buy a Canon adaptor! Nobody minds that ... look how well HTC did with extUSB!!

I personally find it hilarious that the Windows Defenders are so insecure that they have to come here and attack the the Apple Fanboys, like a bunch of pissed-off gangstas.
Without calling out anyone personally, why even participate in a thread like this if you're only going to be a Negative Nellie?
Is is just to cr@p all over our Cheerios?
You don't see Apple fans coming over to the "How do I bypass my crappy Windows OS to avoid latency and interference and get decent sound out of my PC while running iTunes?" threads to make fun of you, do you?
Defenders attacking Fanboys when they still have 9 to 1 market superiority is very curious and insecure (Psychology 101). Come to think of it, it's Reactive vs. Proactive--kind of like the Microsoft vs. Apple mentalities in general, respectively.
I don't think that any of us who are genuinely excited about this new and ground-breaking product that is just the beginning of a whole new computing paradigm will be sorry to see you leave if you do choose to espouse your negativity elsewhere; don't let the door hit you in the you-know-what on the way out and we will have even more fun without you
|You cant efficiently take notes on it since it doesnt have a stylus, its a capacitive touchscreen which is good for finger input only. Artists make up a big chunk of mac users, and this product was supposed to allow them to draw on, yet this leaves them in the cold.|
Re: your comment about -why post if you are gonna be negative Nellie, and -implying that we should leave and take negativity elsewhere.
I'd like to point out that this is a tech forum. A place to discuss positives and negatives about products, and share experiences and help each other out.
ps. I do own and owned lots of apple products... and although I prefer Windows, I am open minded to try any innovative product. But this does NOT mean that I'd buy an IPAd or IMac or Macbook at their current price and specs and offerings.
"If you don't have any thing good to say, don't say it"
Especially if you've never seen/touched/used said piece of equipment.
The key words in your reply are, "and share experiences"; do you have any with the iPad?
If so, a world-wide audience is anxiously waiting to hear about them...
I also use Mac & Windoze platforms (among others), and my $80 second-hand circumural Triports are the very best for listening to compressed music straight out of my Nokia 5800 S60 music phone. Not that I ever do that
Lots of money for marketing?
But the quality doesn't suffer proportionally because of "quantity of scale" IMHO.
It's hard to argue with success, not that stops anyone from trying
If these tablet computers that have been around for a year are so great why haven't they been selling at all, if people really wanted a full tablet computer? That's because people don't really need a full tablet computer and Apple knew that.
I'm sorry but our technology just isn't good enough to be able to fit a full operating computer inside of a half inch thick piece of aluminum. Maybe in another ten years. And the App store and iBook store is going to be what's going to make the iPad. Just like the App store made the iPhone and the iTouch, and that's why all those other tablet computers aren't selling, because they don't have the App store.
The only market for a full tablet computer is going to be digital painters and that's it, and that's an extremely small market and even smaller when you consider that probably 90% of those digital painters probably won't make enough to justify paying for a full tablet computer like the iMod or whatever other full tablet computer out there.
am I the only one who sees thru all the marketing BS and sees a product for what it really is?
Full size Tablet PC aren't aimed at the general public as their sale point they are more aimed towards doctors, students, people who works involve a lot of commuting, engineer, artist and designer. When you look at a tablet PC they aren't built to be powerful they are built to be lightweight and battery efficient. They are also more durable than any normal laptop. In all the Tablet PC market is aimed towards professional and business thus the they carry a premium price tag. When you look at a tablet pc majority of the well built and use one often start @ 1300-1400 for standard config and then exceed to 2-3 grand for more options and docks. When you look at this and let say your just a normal day to day laptop user, your not going to pay that much for something that has less power than a macbook which is 999 or any netbook/notebook you can get for cheaper.
In the sum of this all. Apple could of made the ipad better in that if they basically took the mac and a tablet pc smashed them together and give the price of a 13inch macbook pro and make the whole thing better and mainstream it. Other than that all the Ipad is as of right now is a bigger itouch for more $$$. The iphone imo still outreigns the ipad. If you want 3g get a tether on your iphone to your laptop and wam. Your laptop just became an ipad and some.
