Just read the HP story here at EET. It's quite similar. HP seems so... once upon a time, but reduced to rubbles after it's founder gone.

Agreed. And also, I do not understand the need for Apple to keep denying some obvious conveniences to it's users. Like, EtMax mentioned, Apple some times appears to take consumer loyalty for granted. If only the world had another design innovator.

A friend got an ipad 2, and i'm hoping they go the rest of the way on a 'sleek' design for the 3rd gen ipad... I.E. inductive charging, wireless for all file transfer, flush buttons for power/volume - and then you have a 100% waterproof unit with no ugly buttons on the side. THAT would be progress.

I agree. As long as it does not become endemic, this is consistent with Apple's image.

The dud will surely come one day. Apple is currently on a really good run and sooner or later there is bound to be a lull in its sales. But then, as long as Apple can continue to innovate, it will re-define itself again ... just as it did with the iPod

Well for me, Apple products are still expensive :-). So what happened ... did people get richer?

I believe the tablet market still has great growth potentials. So there should be enough demand to snap up those iPads. This is the crucial time for other tablet providers to fight for market share.

Unfortunately Flash is a way of life on the web. The only real complaint I've heard from users of the iPad has been the lack of flash. The one nice thing about the iPad lacking Flash is that Apple gave Android tablets a bulkhead to grab hold of.

So far, I haven't really seen an urgent need for Flash on either my iPad or iPhone, so I really wonder what the world needs to "wake up to". Also, I've seen far too many issues with Flash on Windows PCs to want to wish it onto other devices. It's a great idea, but needs to mature more (and quickly).

Despite the short supply, I find it remarkable that Chinese businesses attempt to sell real Apple product in faux retail stores. http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-20082910-1/two-fake-apple-stores-closed-in-china-report-says/ http://newyork.ibtimes.com/articles/186226/20110725/fake-apple-store-china-kunming-close-benefit-counterfeit.htm
