    The iPad, like all of Apple's other great achievements, has enjoyed its fifteen minutes of fame. Till now. The iPad is basically revolutionizing the way people think about computers, music players and everything else and if I may say, Apple is setting an okay example. The iPad has some great features that I have begged my (old dog not learning any new tricks) iPod touch. The whole giant screen thing was a real crowd pleaser. How am I going to fit that in my back pocket. Their offering 5G AT&T service on it but for what, simply internet! AT&T is out of there effing mind! Spending over 200 billion dollars is going to bankrupt them along with drive all the loving AT&T customers to hell.

    The iPad for one: Can't call, Can't Text, Can't Support Java Code or rich HTML Code, Can't Support Adobe Flash Player, Can't Support Compound Shockwave Code, Doesn't contain a Camera.

    Well, that was seven but you catch my drift. What is the consumer suppose to think about this report! Huh?!

    Seriously, Apple needs to cool it with the whole, lets spend a gajillion dollars to make a product we knew people we're gonna hate but their still going to buy it to fund our crazy stocks. But as we all know Apple's profits on April 2010 with hit the roof and then get twisted in the fan and never plummet because in another month the new iPhone will be coming out and honestly no one knows what this one is supposed to do.

    Honestly, I am waiting for the iFloatNextToYouAndPlayMusicWhileYouActLikeAGod.

    Apple is honestly starting to fail.

    How about composing a treaty with Windows for a little while and then you create some massive object with Windows and soon we will have:


    It can:
    Lick its Elbow
    Jump-rope with one hand
    sneeze with its eyes open
    and kill chuck norris.

    But knowing apple. They will forget the music. And every other tool we love.

    I was so glad to hear that Apple effed up and sent out iPod Touch in Diagnostic's Mode because Apple proved its not perfect like the commercials beg them to appear.

    The iPhone keeps getting better while the i(Whatever) gets worse. Ehh, thats the American business for you.

    It's amazing to see them one after another coming on here to blurt out "I know exactly what would sell like hotcakes! Apple just has to create the exact same product that spent the last 20 years failing in the market!"

    Oh and no bezel, because it's not innovation if Apple hasn't invented and integrated levitation technology into it.

    If you don't like it and you have problems with it then don't buy it it's that simple. I don't understand the whining. It is a completely new product (I would say new product category) which is not in the mass production yet. Some of the specs can change before they start selling it they might throw a camera on it since it seems they planned it anyway.

    If it's a failed product then other computer manufacturers are dancing hand in hand around the bonfire because they can make much better products that will do everything that iPad can't and as a bonus it will take the kids to the school in the morning, wash the dishes or do something of your choice.

    The product as itself is awesome! A tablet pc needs to start somewhere. Microsoft tried and failed badly. They did what you wanted, but it costed too much and battery life was awful. Microsoft stuff the tablet with an operating system meant for desktop chip. The Ipad is not meant to be pocketable. The iphone os is a mobile version, multi-touch version of OS X. It was coded to operate on a low power chip on the iphone and ipod touch. The iphone, ipod touch are the babies or the birth of something incredible. The ipad is the toddler of what we eventually want a man or woman to be. The 2nd or 3rd gen of the Ipad will be what you "geeks" want an itablet to be. However, to see such a tablet, this Ipad need to succeed in the market. The first gen Ipad appears to be great at providing speed in doing web browsing, play music, display photos, means for reading, and gaming and more. So, be patient. We geeks will get ours in time!!

    Safari (aka Webkit) includes one of the most standards compliant engines you will find. It along with Firefox are about the only two browsers that fully support HTML5. So I am pretty sure it supports "rich HTML code". As for Java, who cares? I can't remember the last time I went to a website that required it. Java on the desktop is pretty much dead these days.

    I propose a new filter on the forum. Newbies with < 10 posts cannot post in the iPad Discussion forum.

    Yep The iPad Sucks, Guess I'll Have To Buy One Secretly

    "Apple is honestly starting to fail."

    uh huh....yea ;)

    While the rest of us move into the future I suggest YOU do the following:

    1) Get a cheap Dell laptop
    2) Install Windows 7
    3) Get a Droid
    4) Buy a Zune
    5) Buy the Ballmer zPad
    6) Buy MS and Google stock

    There, you really showed us didn't you? :cool:

    You're absolutely right. OP, don't buy an iPad and none of this will effect you. Enjoy whatever hardware you currently use.

    This is NOT a phone and it's NOT a computer!!! It is something to be used in between your phone and computer. If you don't like the idea don't buy one. Coming on here and gripping about the product and your opinions on it no one cares and neither does apple. I agree with the person a couple posts above me newbs with < 10 shouldn't be able to post in the ipad section. It's just a bunch of useless trash posts.

    His opinion is just as valid as yours. This is a forum and he can say whatever he pleases. If you don't like the thread, don't post in it. Not a hard concept really

    Sadly, I am starting to notice this behavior from you unfortunately

    Another shining example

    How do you compose a treaty with an operating system?

    And what is this "massive object" you speak of?
