    I thought it was awesome that during the demonstration of the NYtimes.com webpage during the press conference...it was immediately clear that the iPad doesn't have Adobe Flash.

    So, what exactly, was the rumored busy day for Verizon supposed to be about? Or is the Apple 'event' still ongoing? I'm on my lunch break and haven't had time to really follow...

    Notice how all the pop-up menus are direct rip-offs of Android 2.1?

    Of course it doesn't, and probably never will. Most say it's because Flash doesn't run well on a Mac, but really it's because Apple doesn't like the idea of a developer circumventing the app store. And we all know how much Apple likes to be in control of their devices.

    And to be honest, I'm not really that impressed with it. It's a giant iPod Touch, wooooooo.

    Very disppointed and I actually like most apple products...So much for the hype, form factor is ok I like the thin-ness but the proportions are weird.

    IPAD!............................ What a JOKE!

    Seriously, look, I happen to appreciate apple products. But what the **** are you supposed to do with this!?

    Look, if your going out on a trip or whatever there are two things you might need. 1...you may take your laptop for portable computing. You get to your hotel and boom you have all your computer needs. 2nd... you need your iphone/ipod touch or droid for the ultimate in ultra portability web browsing, phone, documents ect ect. Which allows you to take all you basically need literally any where.

    Where does this put the Ipad? it dosent completely erase the need for your laptop and its not a phone and its too damn big to carry with you on a daily basis.

    Yes It does look pretty sweet and sleek. However its pointless. If you have a laptop and an iphone or droid or ipod touch you really dont have any need for the IPAD.

    I would have been impressed if this thing could do every thing your laptop can do and more.

    thats my 2cents

    Yeah really weird that they would use the iPhone OS and not Mac OSX....if it were OSX it would be badass and totally worth $1K.....but a giant ipod touch is just not worth it.

    Seriously having MAC OSX on it would have made be drool and whip out my wallet in an instant. This thing had soooo much potential to be a really great device...oh well saves me from wanting to buy another device at least.
