    People having use for them and people owning them are completely different things.

    99% of people with an ipad use it for something they already had in their hands.

    Wanna know who's a thoughtless consumer? Look to the guy with an iPad.

    With that kind of thinking they should have stopped advancing cell phone technology past the call features. The new phones coming out are practically small computers...heck some come with keyboard docks. You could do the same things on your desktop that you can do on your laptop....but as a matter of convenience you want to walk around or go mobile with your computer activity.

    Actually...based on your second comment above and using your logic you should never need another girlfriend....:grrhee:

    If the girlfriend is the same as you already had? You're right.

    Don't confuse the same technology with a new gimmick for different technology.

    It's not about "advancing". The iPad isn't advanced... it's merely an oversided iPod Touch. Just a trick to make dumb apple trendtsers think they need something they already have. Overpay for it, and think they're up with the times.




    Note: I have an iPad, and cant find a use for it. Only reason I have it is because I got it for $250 from a friend. Put games on it for the kids, but that's about all it's used for.

    Ipad's are ****en stupid, everyone who owns one already has a smart phone and a laptop for the most part. The Ipad is just like a retarded sibling of the two that specializes in nothing.

    Again it's funny the overt emotion people have about the issue. I am not necessarily an Apple fanboy. I did own an Apple IIe in grad school, wrote my thesis on the thing. Had a couple of early macs (plus and SE)...but have been using PCs most of my life. Have a Dell laptop...rarely used any more as my iPad has replaced it and there is nothing I find myself missing out on. Just much more mobile and I have all my books on it.

    I am not calling people hauling laptops around idiots, but amazing how venomous anti-iPad people are...just dont get it. I guess it's like the people that are the same way about PS3 vs Xbox...was never a fan nor critic of the Xbox as a PS3 owner but bought one and like it.

    Maybe it's just because I love tech in general...it's amazing the times we live in where we have all these freaking cool devices and options. People that exert so much energy hating any one platform or vendor seem pretty nearsighted to me.

    Too much like the DLP haters who swear the technology is flawed due to RBE...yet I have never suffered. To each his own.

    Because watching people be thoughtless sheep annoys the piss out of me. Sure, it's their money. But as someone in advertising- seeing people controlled and manipulated by gimmicks and marketing tactics still blows my mind.


    I have a newer iMac, a Macbook Pro and an iPad. But a stupid gimmick product is a stupid gimmick product.

    But... these are the same people that overpaid for iPods and iPhones while there were tons of better products moderately priced out there sitting on the shelves.

    Well, if you think I am some mindless clone who buys based on an ad or page in a magazine then you are mistaken. If anything, I am guilty of over researching just about everything I buy...to a fault.

    But again, I know some people who are in varying industries who are as cynical as I am about claims of "the next greatest thing" and several own iPads and love them.

    I can understand why people might not want one. Just find it funny how polarizing it can be among people in an age of so much tech out there.

    I don't hate the iPad, I hate tablets in general. They serve no purpose. You have a smaller version if you have a smart phone, which most people do. Own a computer? It's the same thing, except more useful.

    Most people use their tablet as a Facebook machine. SO USEFUL.

    Would the word practical be more acceptable to you? Because having an iPad and an iPhone at the same time is not practical.

    LIKE HELL I DON'T! :D
