Cue Captain Obvious.
Hello? Capitalism's GOAL is to promote people's irrational desires. You could pick any product that exemplifies this... the iPad is just the obvious target because it's so popular.
iMessage. FaceTime. iChat.
Apple seems to not want to know what the heck to call their instant messaging system.
FaceTime has the marketing $, I think they should just kill everything and call it all FaceTime.
Kindle fire looks like a great product sold at the wrong price. Amazon could easily charge $300 for it and I bet it would still sell. As it is, they are shooting themselves in the foot.
This won't last long, I predict a price increase...
Paul and kevt- really? You're SURE you didn't yank on it or twist up your cable some way? I work for an apple shop, for about 5 years now, and I've NEVER seen this happen. And we abuse our stuff pretty bad.
I have a hard time believing...

Google originally didn't have any ads when you did a search. They only did that after they realized they had a great service but no money coming in to support it. Same story with Facebook originally no ads, now ads everywhere.
