I am halfway convinced that there is some witch doctor working at 1 infinity loop. Lets take the recent launch of the iPad. I have, like many people, been dogging on this blasted device since day one. No Flash, No Camera, No Multitask. Hell I even made a video on youtube of me hating on the thing. Well that was now and this is then I suppose. It, like all the other Apple crap I don't need as somehow put a spell on me.. Call it out-of-control consumerism but recently I just love the idea of picking up a pad and reading the NYT's or Time magazine in the morning at breakfast on an iPad. Or doing the many other things that can be done with the device. Its like that thing from start trek ... only wayy cooler actually. I tell you after thinking about it over this week, and finally seeing some the apps demo'ed that are worth anyones times, I just want the thing.. Ugh.. Like I said, Apple Voodoo. I mean I have really complained about Apple's closed environment and then do I think to myself ... do i really care?? I mean all my iTunes music is DRM free and will go with me to where ever i go (currently use a ZuneHD as my MP3/audiobook device) so what is the big deal? Hell I used Windows my on desktop machine so I am just looking the other way in that case? I mean come on, a developer could be slaving in a salt mine for all I care. GIVE ME MY NEW AIM APP *CRACKED WHIPPED*. It apple forces them to play by their rules for our benefit ... oh well. Of course right after the lack luster "paper launch" early this year everyone said, the apps will sell it. And they were right. Soo I am getting an iPad ... idk when but soon..
