The iPad...DO NOT WANT

It was the most hotly anticipated tablet since Moses brought down the Ten Commandments. What resulted from Steve Job's keynote at the press conference in San Francisco earlier this week is the iPad. In essence, Apple's much anticipated new creation is..........a giant iPhone. I'm underwhelmed.

I realize that this device is meant to compete with e-readers like the Kindle and the Nook while offering many more media options than are available on all other e-readers. There's no way this thing can hope to compete with netbooks, though, as there's no multitasking, limited storage space, no flash support, it uses the same OS as the iPhone and has no camera? What is this? I had expected a tablet version of a MacBook, and instead Apple has given us an iPod touch for the elderly.

I'm told that within 18 months, there will be a version of the iPad with 128Meg of storage, 2gig processor and two USB ports. They are going to call it the MAXiPad. and you'll have to avoid it like the plague 5-7 days a month.

  2. I don't think you're seeing the big picture.

    And your MAXIPad comment is likely an indication of the quality of your sex life: poor.

  3. Oh, by all means, anonymous, clue me in on this "Big Picture" you seem to know so much about.

    I'll ignore the sex life comment. It completely invalidates any smattering of an argument you might possibly have.

    Get back in the kitchen and make me a god damn sub sandwich, woman!
