    If you're going to go all geek on us, at least get the name right. It was a PADD, not a Pad.

    Well, yeah, but the point is not the quality of the post, but instead, the degree of loyalty to Apple.

    I don't buy that. They bought it without third party application multi-tasking. If it was an important feature they wouldn't have bought it. The built-in applications multi-task to serve most people's needs. I think multi-tasking will be more important in the future though. That's probably why we'll see support for it in iPhone OS 4

    I for one welcome REAL muti-tasking where if I get an email that has a link to a web page and I can just flip back to mail with out having to back out and then relaunch Mail all over again.

    Neither do I, plus it?s been parodied. Plus, the name can?t be copyrighted or trademarked anywhere else or they might find themselves into a satiation where they can?t use the name. like with the AirPort in Japan, I recall that iPad was already used elsewhere.



    I?m still holding for Apple Tablet. We refer to the App Store despite not being the only one. Perhaps Apple wants the basic Tablet name to automatically refer to the Apple Tablet as the top device.



    I also think iBook is nice, but as Ireland pointed out a few months ago it may be too soon which millions still in use.



    In end, I don?t care what they call it so long as it does what I need it to do and that has yet to be determined.

    Your second choice, " Tablet" is unlikely. It's somewhat inelegant. Doesn't roll off the tongue too easily.... (sounds somewhat like 'applet-tapplet').



    I see the first choice as not being impossible since Mac OS X can?t run effectively on a 7-10? tablet.

    The processor isn't the limiting factor, memory is the problem.

    What evidence do you have of that? Pulling information from you butt doesn't count

    Apple never does anything simply because everyone else is doing it. If they did they would have a netbook.

    Can't be something more innovative and clever than just iSomething.



    Apple should think beyond iBrand.



    I want something powerful like "PowerMac G4 Cube".

    I can't help but think about the tip that ?You will be very surprised how you interact with the new tablet.?



    What if it is the "Apple Wave"? You interact with it by gestures above the screen, so that it is not (by preference) a "touch" at all, but rather a "no-touch". What if the enigmatic paint-spatter invitation graphic was produced by a demo app for the new Apple Wave, where you flick your fingers at the screen and it responds with paint spatters?



    Of course, for legacy apps it also supports the fingers-on approach, but that's so 2D...

    I like how the anti-multitask mentality comes from "well, if Apple didn't include it from the first revision, then it wasn't really an important feature after all!"



    Well, what about cut, copy, and paste?



    And I like how people believe that "casual phone users wont know the difference." Well, keep in mind that a large amount of users that have these handsets are technophiles that would like to have access to these applications without having to clunkily move back and forth between them. For those who don't care, they don't have to use it, or even acknowledge its there. The phones don't have to be "dumbed down" because a portion of the audience wouldn't use the feature - it's just like when I first got my iPhone. The attendant who activated it the first time suggested "leaving wifi off all the time" and just using "3G for everything" because it would be "just as good and waste less battery." If that's what a customer service person believes about the average user, then why enable wifi functionality at all?



    I still think its tedious to have to cut Pandora short mid-song, just because I need to access another part of the phone. Firmware hackers have shown that the iPhone has the memory and processing power to do so, its just limited by what is allowed by the default software.



    Hey, if Apple wanted to shove the "speed" argument in Moto Droid's face, they could allow the 3Gs to run at its normal 833ghz speed!

    Frankly, noobs (noob, AFAIK, means someone who doesn't want to learn) took me.



    Tutorial
    1. Open Mobile Safari,

    2. Go on your favorite internet radio site,

    3. Start playback,

    4. Quit Mobile Safari; playback continues,

    5. Enjoy reading your emails, playing your uber-mega-RPG on iPhone...

    Yes, because you...er he...was a tool and iPad is a feminine hygiene product.
