    can't admit when apple's screwed up. I love apple products. I've had every iPhone there was , Get a new macbook with each new model, but this? this is a sad excuse for apple creativity. the only way to make this work is to add flash and allow for multiple apps to run at the same time. because without those two, it's just an oversized iPhone that can't make calls. pointless.

    Has it ever occurred to you that just because you think this thing is a failure that not everybody agrees with it?

    It's pretty sad that you felt as though you had to sign up for an account to post this. Hey guess what? I love Apple but they ****ed this one up. So what? Get over it and vote with your (or your parent's) wallet.

    Sorry but how is making a giant sized version of their post popular product a screw up?

    The iPhone was a huge success. Why would a bigger version be a mistake?

    I couldn't care less about the iPad because I know that I won't be using it. However, I can see it catering to the needs of some people. Obviously you cannot see its use in your life, but that's far from saying that they have "screwed" up.

    You're absolutely right OP. How Apple even managed to have the balls to release that utter crap is beyond me.
    But I don't want to repeat myself.

    It's pretty sad you ....

    Ah, smeg it. ;)

    It's only been 19,353,600 seconds or so. One year has 31.536.000 seconds give or take the leap year.

    That's why it is not a phone. If you don't see the value, why do you spend time "hating" it?

    Have you run out of toilet paper too?

    Give it a rest. Move on with your life. Do you spend all your time posting on other boards when a company releases a product you don't like? If you do, that is pretty sad, but at least you would be consistent.

    Chances are you don't and you are here to troll and get a rise out of people. I repeat, move on with your life and try to do something constructive with yourself.

    I am pretty sure that after reading your post, Steve just went and fired everyone that had anything to do with the iPad out of embarrassment

    LOL
    Apple will likely sell a ton of these
    And will not give a rat's ass what you think about it

    point is thats not the reason why i joined. and im spending time hating it because of what i know apple has the POTENTIAL to make. the ipad has a nice design. its the OS thats crap. if they fix that, they fix the whole thing. and might even create that new category of device they've claimed to already.

    its no less sad that people like you spend time posting to defend it.

    Sorry - but this logic fails me. Regardless of whether or not *I* agree with the OP, why do you assume he's a troll just because of his differing opinion? And if he is - why did you feel the need to post in this thread. A little hypocritical to tell HIM to "move on with your life and do something constructive with yourself"

    One could easily say that about anyone posting a response. Just sayin... Just like you should vote with your wallet. On a message board, you should vote with your response. Not giving one might be the better option if you think you'll be feeding a "troll" as you put it, no?

    I give you that lack of multitasking is disappointing (Flash not so much though). But your criticisms are software features and I think multitasking will be one of the new features on iPhone OS 4.0.

    Although iPad can be thought of as a large iPhone (or a bit more accurately, large iPod touch), some may also say iPhone is a super small notebook, or that it represents a small iPad.

    Yes, iPad isn't a revolutionary device like iPhone was, but if you were to design a tablet computing device, and want to make it as cheap as possible (starting at $499), what would you do all that differently? Apple took the iPhone OS, enhanced some of the apps to bring some of Mac OS X apps functionalities while adding new features of its own (e.g., iBooks).

    Like the original iPhone, the platform will evolve and for me, I think it may represent a better browsing experience (sans Flash-based websites) than Mac OS X.

    thank you samcraig, for pointing out that clear logical flaw. and as for you people with your fancy and cool form lingo - no, i'm not a "troll" , whatever the hell that means. i am just an apple fanboy who was hoping for what apple said they delivered, and disappointed by the giant iPod Touch they gave us instead. and if you think i'm wrong, just wait and see. as long as the OS doesn't change, this thing is destined to fail. don't think so? oh well. you'll see soon enough.

    That is actually debatable. No one would have to defend if you sad little people didn't show up to crash the party. Some of us would like to just discuss the product, then you folks jump with your clearly :rolleyes: well thought out threads about how the device sucks and it is destined to fail.

    What is it exactly? What makes you show up here with your negative posts? Are you mad that Apple didn't give you what you wanted? Just like little children. So really, who do you think the sad ones are? Hint, it isn't those who like the device.

    Just because it fails you, does not mean it fails. First of all. The OP has offered nothing original here. It is the same garage we have heard since Tuesday. He can participate in any of the existing threads discussing the flaws of the iPad.

    However, the OP decided to post a new thread. One with a title that was written to get a rise from those who like the device.

    Why do I feel the need to reply? Well, quite simply because I feel like it. If these folks want to continue to post the same thing over and over again with a different catchy title. I plan to respond.

    I am curious as to what you think logic is. You first say I am hypocritical by asking the OP to move on (or at the very least post in an existing thread.) Then tell me I should vote with my response. So which is it? Your advice seems contradictory, which, as you may know contradictions do not pass the logic test. Just saying.

    As I WILL be voting with my posts - I'm not responding to you beyond this one.

    Post in this thread - don't post in this thread. That is your right. And if the OP is not breaking any board rules, then he is within his right to start threads you don't like. Don't like - don't read/post. But if you do post, you're not adding anything to the discussion by telling him HE's not adding anything to the discussion. THAT is hypocritical.

    Most would agree that a truly mature person wouldn't respond at all or after they said their piece would, themselves, move on. So calling others immature, is perhaps also hypocritical.

    Enjoy the rest of your back and forth

    Except for the part where it says next to your username "Join Date: Jun 2009" and that nearly 50% of your 19 (as of this writing) total posts have been today, in this thread.

    But that's not the real point. I only bring it up because you bothered to post it, when the information was right there next to the post. :)

    The point is, it's not justifiable to call the iPad a screw up at this point in time. On the same token, it's impossible to call it a success or a revolutionary product either. Nobody has even made a pre-order let alone actually purchased one. If it comes out in april and sells poorly, and is discontinued in a year then yeah, pretty big screw-up. You could even stretch a long ways and judge it on the basis of poor pre-order sales, when it actually becomes available to order. But if it comes out in april to high sales, then is it going to be hard to call it a screw-up?

    It's nice to know that you are disappointed in the listed specs of the iPad, but to call it a failure before anyone has even had the opportunity to pre-order one is just unjustifiable conjecture.

    Is it hypocritical?

    Do you really think someone who puts "fanboy" in their title is going to be able to have a reasonable discussion.

    I also have to wonder if using "fanboy" in a title is within forum rules. If it is, I then have to wonder if it should be.

    I know you won't respond. But let me ask. Do you really think this thread adds anything to the discussion?

    The ipad gen 1 is no different to the iPhone gen 1 or any other first gen apple
    product. All of them severly lack in features. Remember the first iPhone wasn't even 3g, when every other smart phone at the time was. It also lacked copy and paste until the 3rd major software revision. Copy and past is essential! It still doesn't have a camera on the front for video calls!

    The difference this time is that the ipad is too similar to other apple products, that's why apple fan buoys are crying fowl over it.

    Hopefully this outcry will knock back a bit of sense in apple and in future they will release first gen products with current day technology.

    Despite this, I still like the ipad, but already owning a touch, I don't feel I have a need for it. However that may change in the future, the ipad
    may become more tempting as they give it more features. My next upgrade
    though, will be to replace my MacBook with 2007 with an iMac 21" but that won't be for a while.

    I find it amusing when it is thought that a small minority of people who are not even in the targeted demographic of the product are going to "knock back a bit of sense in apple".

    Apple will sell a ton of these things just the way they are
    And they are in business to make money
    Sure, there will be upgrades and improvements along the way
    But they are marketing to the vast majority of consumers, not a techie group
