part of me wants to get one just for the "cool toy" factor but the thing is so crippled (like the iphone) that i just can't do it. i could deal with not having flash (which there will be a work around for eventually) but the no multi-tasking thing simple kills it. if you're trying to replace a netbook, not being able to multi-task is important. it is STUNNING that apple still hasn't added it considering it's been an issue from the start.

it's the perfect example of working on people's dumb asses

just getting something because it's the new thing. that thing is going to sell like a mofo.

cough


yea yea i got it, but i enjoy it for what it is, watch movies listen to music and play dumb addicting games, so far i'm happy with the purchase and im sure i will love it even more after spending 8 hours travling next week to LA for work

if i would of gotten it for like work purposes or something then i would probably hate it though but its for pure entertainment so it does the job well

i was actually thinking it would make a great car pc. rig it up into your dash and tether it to your droid. it would be nice.

alas, early reports are saying that the ipad has heat and wifi issues. so really, as a car pc solution, it's just as pointless as any other use.

::raises hand::
Yes yes, bust my chops all you want. But you all know me and know that I'm not a Mac fanboy and that I don't buy into hype. I am well aware of the limitations of the device, but it perfectly fits my needs as a couch/bed Internet browser, book reader, portable DVD/movie player.

Let the flames begin!

Hey Buzz, think you could add a control or something to the site so that you can switch between the mobile and regular ver of the site. It forces you to use the mobile version on the iPad, which looks retarded.
I'm not sure if the browser string is the same between iPhone/iPad, but if they are different, maybe you could set it not to serve up the mobile view for the iPad.

i find it funny that the site needs to be changed to accommodate the ipad. perhaps it should give the user the option of changing its identity so it can be served differently.

the only thing this does (browse the web), it doesnt seem to do very well.
