I tried it, and got no links on the first few pages that mention anyone complaining about it being too light (weight-wise). There are plenty of complaints about it being too bright to read e-books.
You are in the 16% bracket i presume.http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/20...aper-than-ipadA new study from Retrevo (over 1,000 non-Retrevo users) looks at interest in the iPad ahead of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference next week. The company emailed WebProNews with a round-up of significant findings. So without beating around the bush, let's just get to them. Study Highlights: - 52% of people surveyed say they "don't need" an iPad - 38% of people say the iPad is...
type in "iPad too heavy" into a google search and see what comes up. Huffington Post PC World CNet Reviews Business Insider There are a lot of people complaining about the weight. Everyone I know who owns one has "mentioned" that it is on the heavy side.
you fail to see that you're not holding a laptop in your hand for extended periods of time. When you hold the iPad long enough, fatigue does set in. i can agree with the rest of what you state. Right now the iPad is 24 oz. That's more than double that of a standard paperback book, roughly 4-8 oz. Heck, the Dell Streak is 7.7 oz. and it does just about the same as the iPad.
i agree, instead of a smaller form factor to reduce weight, why not improve the current model to reduce weight. I am one that subscribes to the fact that the current model is too heavy, comparatively speaking. The ipod Touch has the same guts in it, except for a larger battery and screen size, and it only weighs 4.05 oz. I can't imagine the screen and battery contributing that much more mass. Even if they reduced the current model to 500g (17 oz) it's still too heavy,...
you sound like they type of consumer that would buy the Yugo if it was replaced with an Apple logo.an all-in-one TV/iTunes device is very different from a boom-box.
I'm not sure where you get your data from but 5 years is very wasteful to be rid of a TV. I have a 5 year old plasma and it works just as well as it did when i bought it. my last JVC 31" CRT lasted me 15 years before the picture started to dim and blur.
yeah, and if you follow Google at all, their Android OS for TVs and STBs might be more what you're looking at.http://www.google.com/tv/
I'm looking forward to Sept. even more now with all this hype and news about a product i would buy if they beefed it up. Which it sounds like they will eventually. A good frist start would be to put a modified version of the iOS on the aTV. Include internet browsing, the ability to control the aTV from a iPhone/Touch or include a Wii-style remote with fold-out keyboard. Man, would the App Store sales shine after introducing that. Now, with iTunes subscription services....
see my quote...by "the right people" meaning people who only want those things (reading books, audio books & music and very light email and internet).
