iWork not iWorks
No fair!!!
No, I'm totally with you. I was thinking yesterday how nice it would be if FTP were more fully integrated into Lion, as in up AND down (what a concept!). Its still the fastest protocol. As for security, put an 's' in front and bob's your uncle. Luckily there's still Transmit.
I think they can safely call that a 4in screen.
DOA me thinks.
The iPad doesn't really need another computer to function. They'll happily set it up for you when you purchase it in the store, and even do updates for you when new firmware is released. Other than that, it's possible, though less convenient and dangerous for your data, to operate it completely on its own. Another computer makes it all go much more smoothly and provides backups, but it can't legitimately be a negative point.

Or you can use a friend's (or nephew's) machine to do the setup, after which you (or your aunt) are running free, and your friend (or nephew) can delete the data from his iTunes.

The best part about iTunes movie rentals/sales is that they don't restrict access if you're traveling outside the US. As long as your account has a US credit card and address, you're good to go from any IP address. That's a huge plus. Trying to deal with a VPN and Netflix is extremely frustrating. The worst part about iTunes is their selection is pretty terrible, and the UI is horrible.
This is seriously incredible considering the ho-hum tablet market forecast one year ago. I hear people bashing the iPad occasionally, and it's either because they read something on some asshat blog, or they're the type that doesn't want to want what other people want, so they have to knock it down to calm their wanting-ness. Anyone who has actually used one loves it. Whatever, this is amazing stuff.
haha it's funny to hear all these clueless fuckers who complained about the long lines or going home empty handed or what they think is a "poor launch". What the hell did you expect. The lines are part of the hype, the experience, the success, and whether or not you got one, this still stands to be the biggest launch yet. The fact that people waited all night and didn't get one says it all, and you know you'll be back as soon as you can get your hands on one. You love it.
