    I wouldn't touch an iPad. The device is just a neat little gadget. It is not very practical at all. It will still be a home run because every hipster drinking 7 dollar coffee and listening to some unknown band called Tuesday Afternoon will have to have one. So many have drank the Apple kool-aid...

    Agreed. I can't for the life of me figure out what I would use it for... yeah maybe as an e-book reader, but I wouldn't pay >$200 for an e-book reader (and that goes for Kindle as well), especially when I have no problem using a manually operated book

    I think the most limiting part of this is not being able to listen to music while you surf. I also would miss a usb port. But I hope to get my hands on one sometime to try it out myself.

    You can play iTunes in the background just like on an iPhone.

    I ordered one for my 90 year old grandmother who has never used a computer. I'm going to teach her how to do email, use the web, etc. It will be the easiest computer (or perhaps computer-like appliance) to teach someone to use ever. I'll get a chance to test drive it for myself then, but I don't see buying one for myself at this point.

    They sold 300,000 of them on Saturday with perhaps that many more already pre-ordered.
