I seriously suspect he (Tekstud / yesHEcanbeAteabagger) is unemployed - in which case he has my sympathies (seriously).
Been there - not doing that presently - am presently farting about trying to come up with some odds and ends designs for a laid-back friday (coaster, t-shit and blog header design and some middling asset updates for a pile of sites) - which works best by not thinking about them too hard and letting the idea float to the surface (if that makes any kind of sense). Also prefer waiting for the caffeine to take hold.
At least it works better than staring at a blank screen until my forehead bleeds (bonus if you can identify the author I just paraphrased)
I'm looking forward to finally being unchained from the desk with a truly portable device that has a screen larger than my phone. I gave up normal TV when I decided I didn't want a 50 inch jumbotron in the living room. The iPad is freakin' perfect for my needs.
Somehow I wouldn't be surprised if teckstud was a teabagger (in the political meaning of the word), even though his grammar makes me suspect he is an ESL person who would have nothing in common with the predominantly white grievances of that group.
I am a technician/writer/designer/artist myself so I understand the creative process well. I am looking forward to getting a hold of one of these iPads just to play around with, but I also hope it will be useful.
My only quibble with the design of it, is the disappointingly large bezel which likely won't allow for thumb-typing (crucial to my intended uses), and is I feel a sort of sop towards the lower end users who might inadvertently pick it up wrong and open an app by mistake. It's also a bit big for me as I have great eyesight.
My ideal iPad would be halfway between this and the iPhone in size, with a bezel designed more like the iPhone than the iPad. That way it's more easily stowed in a purse or big pocket instead of having to carry an extra bag, and is still easily big enough to read and (more importantly), the perfect size to thumb type on like the iPhone.
I am constantly surprised that Apple makes all of it's products the same size or only makes one size of each type given the fact that humans come in sizes ranging from 1 to 2.5 metres tall and hand sizes range wildly. I'd like to see them manufacture two or three sizes of all the iProducts and pay much more attention to the ergonomics, but this is something Apple has historically never been very good at. Probably because it destroys the impression of the product as being "perfect" if one size doesn't fit all or one ergonomic decision isn't perceived as right for everyone.
