      Been told they are putting two more towers in my area (three miles away from me ) this month but won't be working until July.. so when I come back down here I will see how it goes...
      What do you mean you've hardly had to pay a bill?

      A netbook can download music from different sources and handle itself. The iPad will have to be connected to a computer to transfer songs and videos lololol. And only has 64GB lol. I mean such a big device with such low storage.

      File sharing through Bluetooth like on a normal phone to phone thing so I can send files or some other sucky thing?
      Another fail like the AppleTV.

      ^It won't replace a computer as you can't go to a site and download an program you want, you can't connect another device to it and it needs a computer to work in the first place. For the price of the high end model, you'd rather get a MacBook.

      It's also a bit big for a gaming machine, tilting something that big in public places would look stupid.

      Ok, first of all, I know this isn't a forum, but really what is the point of a tablet PC. My netbook was way cheaper, has a bigger hard drive, and more features, bluetooth and 3G included, but then again, it is a Windows based netbook. So what is the point of a tablet pc? Without a cd drive it offers no benefit to a traditional netbook. Think I'll be sticking with my Advent 4213 with Windows 7, 160GB hard drive and 2GB RAM.....how long is it before the iPointless is hackable? if its running OSX, I give it a week

      I think people have more of a reason to live inside a Starbucks now. I wonder what the ratio will be of customers who are carrying one of these along with an iPhone to customers who just have iPhones...

      I have been so frustrated at their service that I have called each month and complained about everything that I am experiencing since I have been here... and also complained about what callers are saying they are getting when they call me as well...

      This past month I called and was really upset! I am in a VERY nice neighbor hood here but my neighbor that is old just loves his 45 year old son so much that he let him live in his garage. Make the long story short his son was dealing drugs and there was a drive by shooting next door and I could not even call the police!

      guess that grand i had set aside for this useless waste of r&d is gonna go toward buying me a new 50" flat screen instead......thanks Steve for having your head too far up your *** to listen to your target audience and give us a real OS on this thing........if someone hacks it and can put Snow Leopard on it, i might actually re-consider....pffft, what a waste.

      we all just got SteveJobbed!!!

      I keep reading some people who compare the ipad to a notebook, when Apple has specifically said it's not a competing device to the notebook. It's like me reading your posts and making fun of them because they are not like prose written by a famous writer.

      The iPad has one in-direct competitor: the Kindle.

      Steve Job said today that the ipad is the stepping stone between the iPhone and the notebook.

      It's unfair to compare it to a notebook. The question is this:does the ipad do well what it was build to do?
