You know - for posterity. I'd imagine several people will recant from their current position, trying to shrug it off. Add a quote from your favorite folks, with a link to the quote and then we can review if any change their mind in a few months. e.g. Bill Gates - who said “We've really achieved the ideal of what I wanted Microsoft to become.” in 2008 ( Guardian.co.uk Editor interview Link Link Mike D ". He called iPad the "ideal device for today's world." Link Rob Enderle -You know his views on the iPhone [/QUOTE]Apple’s iPad Tablet Could Slay eBooks and Netbooks Google CEO Eric Schmidt Link Link Hitler Silicon Alley Insider - John McKinley - Way too much hype, and too little transformation. Dan Frommer - He didn't deliver - Fake Steve Jobs (Dan Lyons - Newsweek's Tech Editor) Apple's Jumbo Oreo The PC Officially Died Today Former Financial Times reporter Tom Foremski at Silicon Valley Watcher The Apple iPad: First Impressions Mossberg's First Impressions http://www.betanews.com/joewilcox/a...-need-an-Apple-tablet-or-any-other/1262456214 Because good enough defines success.....Oh boy. Link Free Software Foundation Ballmer - Microsoft fought back with iBall Link Ihnatko: (Same here - I believed in Ihnatko's take on keyboard, but hey ) The iPad isn't a big Touch, more than the Touch is a small iPad. It's a device that people will get home, sync, and then have, for free nearly every app they've already bought Why doesn't the iPhone, iPad do multitasking? e.g. To let you stream music? - Because Apple wants their streaming sorted first perhaps. e.g. Multiple apps - That's the individual apps policy to design it so it remembers state. e.g. Because switching between apps will be FAST enough for the benefit of the speed is better than having things slow but getting multitasking (All the time an app is unused in the background = wasting resources. If the app is doing stuff in the background it's killing battery in all likelihood). Multitasking comes when Apple wants to bring it - OS 4? We'll have to see.
