Being a cheap poor ba**ard that I am, I bought the 16 gig iPad. It does fine but I am very selective on what I put on it for space reasons. I had a thought, why not have a dock connector cable to dock connector (hook iPad to say a hard drive based ipod with a hell of a lot more storage than the ipad, I have a vast library of movies ). I am sure this is just a pipe dream and people will say that it will cause people to not buy the bigger capacity iPads, but who cares. I want a cheap alternative. Well to all who think I am crazy, fire away with your insults, ridicule, cheap shots and so on, I promise I will not report you because I love reading this garbage.
