That site is a joke. It shows a widescreen iPad with OSX. And here's what they say about our iPad:
You're kidding, Apple. Right? The iPad operating system (OS) is the iPhone OS. The iPhone OS works well for a mobile device. For a full-size computer? Not so much. No multi-tasking means you need to close each program you're working on to open a new program. Then that program must be closed to use another. No hopping around from program to program -- you know, the way you really use a computer.
It's annoying enough on the iPhone, and numerous other smartphones do allow multi-tasking. For some reason, Apple decided it wasn't necessary for the iPad. Major error.
No Flash Support
No Flash in what is primarily a Web device? Shocking. Steve Jobs, during the announcement, kept talking about what a great Web-surfing product the iPad was. If so, why won't it support Flash, so you can watch videos and other Flash animations? Will the experience be so great when you open a Web page with a great, big empty box in the middle?
Yes, Flash can be a security hole. But using the Internet in any fashion brings certain security risks. To cut out such an important part of Web functionality for the sake of added security, in what is being pitched as a surfboard to the Web, is folly.
No Still Camera or Video
Again, this is a media-enabled computer, right? It's about "unleasing your inner creativity," "being who you really are", and other marketing pabulum. If that's so, why doesn't the iPad have a webcam or video camera built in? You can take a picture with a digital camera and upload it, but on most Windows laptops made today, cameras are part of the package -- and have been, for some time.
Video output is supported but only at 480p
I could have forgiven the limited screen size if the device offered true HD output. It doesn't. Again, why not? The new proprietary Apple processor seems powerful enough to power 720p video, yet it's restricted.
It may be to keep from cannibalizing sales of the Apple TV, a device that Apple is somehow still supporting and one that truly does output crystal-clear 720p video. And it ties to the iTunes video store, which is one reason I have and love mine--just like the iPad does. So the reasoning makes sense. But what about other apps the Apple TV doesn't support that the iPad does that would look good on your 46-inch LCD? It's a disappointment.
The aspect ratio isn't wide screen
When the iPhone was introduced, Steven Jobs specifically said it was a "wide-screen iPod." People had been clamoring for one for a while, so Apple delivered it as an iPhone component. Sure, it wasn't the actual 16:9 many wanted, but it was better than the standard definition 4:3 that the current crop of iPods was sporting.
And the latest versions of the Nano are also wide screen. Apple TV supports 16:9 natively, so why is the iPad--with 1,024x768 pixel resolution--stuck in the world of 4:3? Apple says it plays back HD video, which technically it does, but with down-converting. HD video at 720p, which is what the iPad supports, is 720x1,280. With a maximum width of 1024 pixels, the iPad really plays back true 720p--which uses 16:9, anything else isn't truly "720p"--video at 576x1,024. That's not much better than 480p.
There are LCD screens out there in the same relative size range as the iPad that are true HD-proportioned. Why didn't Apple use one of these?
Apple does include A-GPS (Assisted GPS) via Wi-Fi and 3G in the 3G-powered model, but the size of the iPad means that a simple, low-powered real GPS receiver could have been built in to the device, yet wasn't.
That could lead one to assume that this isn't a device for those on the go. No, Apple seems to want to keep the MacBook for these people. The iPad, like the Apple TV, seems to be a device set to live in your house or apartment.
Indeed, when presenting the device, Jobs sat in an easy chair very similar to the ones many of us have in our living rooms. He crossed his legs and used them to prop up the device. If this device was meant to go on the road, it seems it would have had a GPS chip included, just like the iPhone.
