I saw this today and it really pissed me off. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/04/02/why-not-to-buy-an-ipad-ph_n_523619.html 1- It may be obsolete soon. Yeah No s**t. Name me any new technology that isn't going to be obsolete soon. It's still amazing, and it made any new tablet or netbook coming out obsolete. 2- You've Got A laptop and smartphone, so you don't need it- See the iPad announcement keynote. 3- Its price. Yes it's more expensive than any netbook, but that's because netbooks really suck, and the iPad really doesn't. 4- First generation devices can be buggy. The iPad has been in development for years, and my iPad hasn't bugged once. Apple's design is and always has been amazing, and anyone who knows anything about Apple knows they aren't going to release a buggy piece of crap just to make a buck, like any other computer company. 5- It's only on AT&T. Actually you can't only get 3G on AT&T. It's unlocked, and they said that in the keynote. Some jerkoff at Huffington Post didn't do their fact checking. 6- No Flash. Ooh the HP Slate is gonna have Flash! I'm gonna have to trade in my incredibly reliable iPad for Flash! They criticize AT&T for being known as a shoddy cellular network, but they neglect to criticize Adobe Flash for being notoriously poorly programmed and unreliable. And that's why Apple doesn't want Flash on their devices. 7- It's a heavy eReader. It may be heavier than the Kindle, but the Kindle can't play music, watch movies, browse the world wide web very quickly, play amazing games, check email, and the Kindle doesn't offer an amazing experience like the iPad. Also, if people think that 1.5 pounds is too heavy, they should save that money they'd spend and buy a home gym to beef up their arms a bit. 8- No multitasking. This is the only logical and legitimate point they've made so far. Multitasking is a relatively new concept for these devices, and we know Apple is already working on it in 4.0. The no multitasking isn't reason enough not to buy one, especially since we know multitasking is coming soon. 9- No camera. I was disappointed when I saw this while watching engadget's coverage of the announcement. No mention of a camera, kind of bummed me out. And yet I still got one, and i still love it even in a camera's absence. Buy an HP slate. In fact, buy the second gen HP Slate because 1st gen devices suck. Or buy a netbook, they are really cheap and hey, the can multitask, while overall running 3 or 4x as slow as the iPad. And buy a Kindle, they are 14 oz. less than an iPad. Or just take your heavy laptop, and too slow to do a ton of things small smartphone and be on your way, as long as that smart phone isn't on AT&T. I mean seriously. Just look at the iPad, and all the amazing things it can do and just appreciate it.
