    So why so negative about it? I am pretty critical of tech gear...but the iPad is really pretty cool for what it is intended to do...and I use it for that...consume media. I rarely crack open my laptop anymore...all my email, browsing....99% of what I do online I do with that thing..and the ebook reader function is great.

    It's a great device. It just isn't for people looking for a full fledged computer. But apparently it's more than enough for millions of people.

    When my wife's ibook finally bites it, I'll probably get her one. Only problem is no usb ports, which would be key for her. But when all she does with it is email, internet, facebook kind of stuff, it is perfect for that. Anyone thinking it is a full fledge computer.....

    It's truly a stupid little gadget. It does nothing better than a netbook and costs way too much for the small amount of storage it has. Plus... it's just really pointless. The "midsize" gadget just doesn't make sense and wont be used often.

    My director has one. He uses it for music so he can 'thumb' through the PDFs. At least he found one purpose for it. I doubt he finds many others.

    If you bought a laptop for the purposes you got your iPad for, you'd get it for less.

    It was designed not to be able to do certain things. That's how all these things work, prematurely release something, then wait til people are fed up and design it right the second time to make more money.
