    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Remember when the Ipad was going to change everything?

    I know 2 people who own one.

    1 is a guy who bought it day of and now it sits on his desk literally collecting dust. He hasn't charged it in about 4 months. The other is my GF's brother who uses it to read comics and test to make sure his movies play on them.

    Otherwise, I know nobody else who owns one. The only thing it's changed is making it easier to spot assholes in public.

    In my neck of the woods it got universally panned, then got a surge of popularity and has now dropped into obscurity. I like apples kit but still don't see the benefits of this, it's a toy.

    Although I used to be a bit of an apple nutrider i fucking hate the ipad.

    It's just a useless screen with **** all memory, no usb port, cant play flash files (no porn) and does'nt have the processing power to be able to handle HD video.

    In order to put basically any media on the damn thing you have to buy it from itunes. So its basically just a handheld itunes shopping device.


    This is old but still pretty funny.

    Let's not forget:

    YouTube - Apple Introduces Revolutionary New Laptop With No Keyboard

    What amazes me is all the manufacturers jumping on the wagon and producing their windows 7 based pads, that's just putting crap onto crap. The only exception is the Asus IIRC, which ahs a pad which docks into a keyboard like a normal laptop, so it's kind of flexible.

    My old boss bought one on the company account claiming it would help loads in critiques and meetings. It didn't, we played Geometry Wars 2 on it for a bit an used a laptop plugged into a tv to actually do some work on.

    I agree that the IPad itself is a flop but I think the "pad" concept will continue to evolve and eventually overtack laptops.

    True, they're usually good ideas but try to run before they can walk. The iPod won beocuse it just wanted to do one thing, music, and it did it very well and then expanded from a good base. The n-gage etc just went balls to the wall and became very **** at a lot of things.

    Yeah they try way too hard... K.i.s.s. Keep it simple stupid! Best selling consoles? Nintendo game boy,gameboy colour,gameboy advance, and now Nintendo ds... For the most part, nothing special, but they excel at what they do! Come on apple, stop reinventing then destroying the wheel!
