No really, it's so obviously not hyperbole. Did your mommy make it for you?
Widescreen 16:9 or other widescreen formats would make for a terrible book experience. Where as the aspect ratio that they chose will not hinder movies in anyway.
USB is already an option via the dock connector. In case you lack the brain power to comprehend what Apple is doing I'll explain. Apple is making a point that this thing doesn't need ports and if you have a need then use the doc port. I know for a fact this is going to be a critical part of the next wave of development for the "I" devices.
Why can't people understand that Iphone OS already multitasks? It just doesn't multitask 3rd party Apps, yet
The problem ultimately with MT is that
1) it's not really a useful feature on the iphone except for the core services which do multi task. Haven't you ever made a phone cal while checking you email or reading information from the maps app?
2) Users will generally forget other applications are still running and therefore it will kill the battery in the device. I'm sure Apple has been working on a better way to avoid this problem while still providing the feature. Similar to the Iphone launch when people screamed "there's no copy and paste". Apple felt they had to do a better implementation of it before they release it to the consumer. They were right. Multi tasking third party Apps are sure to be part of OSV4. You really should work harder to keep yourself informed.
E_ink is kinda cool but it's very stone age at the same time. Again Apple is looking ahead to how books in the future will best be displayed and digested. E-ink doesn't allow for animation, video, GFX. Maybe in Ipad V2 E-Ink seems a good fit, but it is not ready immediately.
Slot card: See usb above... same notes. Already got one
Not sure how a Slate of granite can mutlitask so really the joke isn't that funny, but I supposed you could also use it to crack open that thick skull of yours and end your constant disappointment in electronic devices that aren't built specifically for you. Why does everyone think that in life all electronic devices must suit their individual needs? Do these same people believe in the concept of a personal god as well? Sorry to disappoint you, but Jobs and God are simply in it to make the masses happy and not you personally.
Take or leave it, the Ipad does many, many things very well. However, if you think you can get a better experience elsewhere, I would suggest that you immediately do so and stop wasting your time complaining about the IPad and creating bad graphics. Remaining fixated on your disappointment in an electronic manufacturers decisions will (in layman's terms) simply turn you into a horses ass.
