Hey Ireland, (and maybe wizard69, teckstud and a few others)
do y'all remember when the tablet was a crazy insane idea and it was only us in a future hardware section thread that would discuss it?
Every once in a while the occasional naysayer would stop by the thread just to make fun of us weird kooks talking about a product Apple would never....ever consider producing? For two long years this has been going on.
Now look. Now everybody and their grandmother can't wait to buy it. Who's da man now hmm naysayers? PWNED!
EDIT: I'm not sure about techstud now that I think about it. Weren't you one of the naysayers techstud?
Most of the criticism was:
1) Not this year. And it wasn't. You guys been saying this year for a couple years. Eventually you'll be right. Might not be this year either but 2010.
2) Keyboardless 10" slate tablet not so hot. 7" slate tablet better or 10" convertible netbook. We'll see what Apple does.
Me, I'm still unlikely to get a 10" slate. I have 11" and 12" slates and really miss a good integrated keyboard on those things.
