  1. That won't happen, though you can use it to control a mouse or use it as a very simplified wacom-like tablet. Wacom tablets are pressure sensitive. The iPad is touch capacitive so it can't read for pressure sensitivity. It can tell where your finger is but you can't press harder or lighter to control things like brush width.

    I type this from my iPad and I love this thing. My gaming laptop is too bulky to carry around the house when I just want to browse the net or such. It is going on 7hrs without charging and only about half drained. Video is smooth and gorgeous on it and the e- reader is sweet.

    Browsing the net is fast and believe it or not I have yet to find any of the sites I routinely visit to be an issue due to the flash deal.

    I am pleasantly surprised.

    One review said it's only good for typing short emails, etc, because the onscreen keyboard doesn't always work on touch. How easy do you find the keyboard to use?

    I don't see myself getting an iPad anytime soon, but I suspect the wifi, flash etc. issues are just a few updates away. Dude next to me on the plane over the weekend had a brand new iPad with the flip stand and it was much cooler than I anticipated..

    My father has a 3g coming in. He is a gadget freak, but more importantly as someone who is losing his eyesight, the iPad is going to be perfect for him.
