I have no Apple products and can't stand the walled garden aspect of Apple products. I'm mostly an open source kinda guy, I want to have FULL control from changing parts to using what I want...not what Steve thinks is best for me. Now with that said, the sheer ease of use and ability to zoom for poor vision of this Ipad is perfect for my parents. The banking apps to the comcast app, it's simply all they will need and keep them from going to the wrong sites. The Ipad is much more an appliance than a PC, I know I will be getting less calls for support. I'm thinking this product could just be the thing to push someone closer to entering into Steve's walled garden. I will be using an Apple product for the first time, albeit for a short time to teach my parents, the only other time was using a friends Mac to test a site I built. I hope I'm not going to be indoctrinated into the cult of Steve Jobs!
