I'm wondering if others are having the same issues. I like the idea of the iPad and I'm sure its a great device for some but I'm wondering if Apple missed the mark a bit by limiting its usage. A couple of thoughts I had - Why no horizontal dock. One of the things that I would frequently use the iPad for when its no in use would be a photo frame. The lack of a built-in slideshow app and a horizontal dock. To me while this wouldn't be a main purpose it would give me another reason to buy the iPad because I think it would be the ultimate digital photo frame! I mean they could have integrated the photo frame app into .mac or facebook and it would have really been slick. I mean how many people have paid $100-200 on a digital photo frame? - When leaving the house would you be comfortable with taking the iPad without a laptop? I'm not sure I can swallow the idea of not having full laptop capabilities. I think this is probably just a personal thing but I don't think I'd really use it outside the house very often... With that being said I really think the iPad is a great household device. Something that can be used frequently. For someone into home entertainment it would make a great household appliance. Recipes, photos, video's, remote control when I'm hanging out somewhere without a TV but I think the could have made it even better if they weren't thinking of this as a larger iPhone/iPod touch...just my .02 Thoughts? Maybe OS 4 will add multi-tasking which will help it become a digital frame but I think the dock being portrait kills the feasibility of this?
