This iPad is bringing in new members, a lot of which are here to bitch (lol that rhymed) but people like him who know what they're talking about stand to keep the discussion interesting.,

I am sorry he just registered to whine about the dead tec that is flash?

I have used one flash site out of 500...give me a break.

Dude, do you actually trade stocks? Buy the rumor, sell the news. Check stock prices on AAPL after many of its events...sometimes it spikes, sometimes it sells off - at least that's my recollection from when I used to trade it.

Besides, the whole market has been on a downtrend for a week now..I wouldn't read too much into the iPad's future sales based on your snapshot evaluation of the current stock price.

Well, it's a wait and see for me. I'm interested, but with the iPhone I wanted one as soon as I saw it, this I'm not sure.

It might be great, or I feel it might be a MacBook Air, which I never quite got the point of. Looking forwards to it being in the Apple store so I can go and have a play with it.

He brought logical reasons to the table as to why flash isn't "dead tech." What have you brought?

If you're going to engage in a debate, simply calling someone a troll and then providing no substantial reasoning for your viewpoint will result in a very boring conversation.

I get into this sort of thing with people on youtube. You have an opinion different than theirs, they call you a name, you ask for a better response, they never return lol

No hand recognition for homework or note-taking. Nothing really must-have about it.

Cute, but I'll stick with my Touch and Macbook.

Tell me how HTML 5 Plans to accomplish THIS.

Do I need to mention the legion of creative professionals whose work benefits from motion? Don't waste my time with that tweener animation crap that jQuery brings to the table for forms. It's not truly interactive.

Google is starting to index it. Flash now supports deep-linking. Bing doesn't, but who cares about Bing? Silverlight is a Hulu novelty.

Your, and Apple's mistake, is to continue to think Flash is a video codec.

If you use Flash correctly, it's a interactive movie in the form of a website that cannot be replicated by lesser, traditional technologies.

HTML5? Are you serious? I suppose you think 99% of users will be able to see CSS3 content tomorrow, too?

I couldn't agree with you more. Not to mention that it is completely frustrating to go to a website that may have useful information and all you see is a flash plugin. How is that a better browsing experience?

No new OS for the iPhone, no multitasking, no camera, stuck on AT&T's network for the time being. No thanks.

Is there a $200 price difference for 64GB flash memory (compared to 16GB)? Otherwise, why the difference, I wonder.

I do think it is a problem for it to not have a camera. That is surprising.

Porn, not porn? ;P

In all honesty, I personally do mostly just reading anymore, but places like hulu are probably the most flash-tastic places I visit.

[CENTER]The absence of a camera is very strange indeed... It reall makes no sense, unless they're that afraid that the iPad will be hacked to video conference.

What we got here is enlarged evolved iPod touch. More than a little disappointed. I expected something revolutionary, not evolutionary, especially with all the hype.

Did I miss that little nugget or is there no release date?

Just a large iTouch.

And 1024 x 768 ??? WTF? Is this 2007?

underwhelming
post #227 of 779
To the people complaining about the $500 price and an apparent lack of features, I present you with a reality check in the joojoo. Controversy aside, it is a $500 internet device witha whole 4GB of storage.

No hand recognition for homework, note taking, etc. It really is just a large Touch.

Cute, but no need for one.
post #229 of 779
[CENTER]Personally, I'll be purchasing an iPad 3G/64gb ASAP, b ut...

As I peruse the various web sites that covered this event, others don't seem quite as enthusiastic about the lack of a camera, huge bezel, lack of a media card reader, no new advancements in multi-touch, and Apple's locked down ecosystem.

Only time will tell if this is just another Newton debacle.[/CENTER]

WANT

And the price is right, too.
post #232 of 779
It's good. I'll probably get one for myself pretty soon. Bu the sad thing is, even with the reasonalbe price, this iPad will never replace the netbooks for the majority of people who are buying netbooks for their low price. Because iPad needs another computer to sync with. It doesn't replace a computer. And it almost could. But you can't connect the iPad to I/O peripherals, e.g. cameras, printers, USB drives etc.

The problem is that this is tooo much like an ipod touch and iphone.

I can do everything this can do on my iphone already. Its really only a bigger ipod touch.

It suffers from not having any features that cant be done on an iphone or ipod touch.

Hulu, NFL.com, Disney.com, foxsports.com, sportsillustrated.com, cnn.com, cnet.com, sports.yahoo.com, cbs.com, ufc.com. Have you used the web much?
post #235 of 779
I wonder if Steve showed the site with the Flash plug-in intentionally, to put pressure on Adobe perhaps. I would think he'd know exactly what sites he was going to visit in a demo and wouldn't show something he didn't want to.
post #236 of 779
Well... That's what Apple is. It's not much, but they never let you be disappointed.

P.S. iPhone did evolve into 3G, didn't it? So may do... well... iPad...

I agree, and disagree. I'm not ready to run out and buy one today, if ever, but the little 3.5" screen of our iPhones is a bit limiting for web browsing of any length, especially if you're in the over 40 crowd and small little screens don't focus that well any more.

The most compelling aspect of the iPad is the eReader/iWork combination, which allows a degree of productivity not afforded by the iPhone/Touch.

I'm shocked, as I bet everyone else is to read that from you....

I can't remember another time when Apple really failed to make a good case as to why someone would need this device, like today.
