iPad is just the next step in the demise of fixed-seat computing and internet access, after notebooks and netbooks.

It will be a modest success, but no iPhone.

I am so truly tired of the people who worship every bit of snot that falls from Mr Jobs' nostrils. To make things even worse I despise touchscreens to begin with---I've cleaned too many monitors of fingerprints and worse, and cringe when people insist on touching them to point out something. Having said that I'm sure some people will find the iPad useful.

Apple fans will make sure of it, talk about irrational exuberance.. I am not an Apple fan, but I believe the Ipad is a nice piece of work in its self. Apple has done a very good job in hiding the limitations of the A8 with the intent to extend battery life (no multitasking, no HD, graphics capability same as the iphone)- seems to me it should have had HD simply because you have to carry the charger anyway. Apples interface is flawless as always and interaction is always good. The biggest problem with the ipad is the price, and to a lesser degree (because its Apple) the lack of openness ; $500 for the 16gB, seems to suggest to me that Jobs is more concerned about margins than rewarding his followers and making new friends. For me it should have been priced from $350 32GB to a max price of $500 (top of the line), Job‚??s would have sold more units (world dominion) and converted a whole lot of non-believers. Apple could have easily asked for about 2% of content providers profits (or other- many ways) to maintain his profit margin.. With new, more powerful cpus (Samsung, mips) and tablet announcements, I‚??m compelled to wait. Apples rumored recent acquisition of chip design house Intrinsity, suggests Apple understands the limitation of the ipad. http://touchreviews.net/apple-buys-chip-design-house-rumor/ asH
