... by not adding a webcam in the iPad. I would have bought one of these for each member of my immediate family (plus accessories), including the best model for myself. Being always on the go, this would have been an AWESOME way to keep in touch with family regardless of the lack of other features people on this board are complaining about (i.e. flash, multi-task, etc). I can absorb the loss of all those features, but not the webcam. Even the most sub-standard netbooks have them, so I don't understand the difficulty of adding it in the iPad? It would have eliminated my final need of a netbook, yet still been smack in the middle between the iPhone/iPod Touch and MacBook product line. I had my credit card ready to pre-order multiple iPads on the day of the announcement in case they had been available. Unfortunately, I will no longer be in the market for this product even though I was truly looking forward to it during its unveiling. Being a devout Apple customer (three different iPhone models, two different iPod touch models, one 27" iMac, and two MacBook Pros), I was looking forward to adding the iPad in my Apple family. It's a shame it won't be a part of it till a webcam gets added into the device. Steve Jobs, you hurt my feelings!
