 They use a standard lamp base.
 Bingo... the more and faster people realize this is just a basic 'pipe' and is a utility... like, electricity, water etc and for the public good; the sooner this will happen. If comcast et all where truely visionary, they would spin off the 'cable pipe' business. Firewall it(so to speak) then offer the content deal(s) seperate. But untill they are 'forced' to do it, they have a strangle hold.In Korea, Japan etc, the pipe is a utility, you pay for the basic internet...
IMO- this book sums up the industry pretty well. Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age by Susan Crawford. She brings up things like natural monopoly, common carrier, public interest... stuff kind of left out of the discussion on... 'cable'!. http://www.amazon.com/Captive-Audience-Telecom-Industry-Monopoly/dp/0300153139/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top Author interview about the book on Cspan book tv ...
IMO- there are so, so, sooo many users out there that just check email and browse the web. I can certainly see why the 'cheop-o's win on volume if its a half way functionally tablet. For an average ... wage challenged worker.... Nexus 7 seems like winner- 100 bucks(savings) is 100 bucks.
 Yep, yep, same here. For me, retina on the ipad could not see the difference to upgrade (MacBook different story... WOW, amazing computer). But now the ipad 2 seems to be getting sluggish on web pages etc. So, probably will update.

 Please re-read his orignal post. IMO - His point/theme was for the average user, which is the vast majority of computer users(non business) , these "vast majority"of users are not going to write there own database/app when there is 'an app for that' or hire a 'truck' like yourself to create one for them..
In regards to buttons and the look and feel, Im probably wa'h-ing over trivial stuff, but should not the 'design and feel' be finished before the beta begins work? Almost smacks of in-decision? Won't developers say... 'what the hey'?
Are all new apps required for this 'wunder tablet'?
Well... Good for them. But the DoD and the largest aerospace company in the US.... No iPhone and iPad is limited to certain apps only. Sigh.
