Does anyone find it funny that AT&T could not release tethering on the iphone cause their network could not handle the bandwidth. But now all the sudden they can handle the oversized iTouch (ipad) that has been hyped the greatest internet browser ever. Makes you wonder if they new this was coming all along. Sure would make it a lot easier to swallow the price if you could just tether the iphone to this thing and not have to pay for two data plans. Just have to wait and see if PDA net and apps like it will work with the ipad. Kind of pathetic to make people with a 3G device already have to pay again when the technology is already there to just tether. GREED

you people shouldnt be complaining about the lack of flash and multitasking because it is only running iphone os 3.2. wait until 4.0 is released and if it doesnt have multitasking or flash then complain not now.
what you should be complaining of is the border around the screen it looks like it is 1-2 cm wide!. also i dont see why apple didnt make it a little smaller and give it the ability to call. gee i wonder what that could be. MAYBE A FASTER BUT FEATURELESS IPHONE??

This does suck and it is an over-sized iTouch but guys we live in a monetary society, that means that everything anyone does is because of profit. No company sits down and says,"Ok, lets invent a product that will never become obsolete and is exactly what the people want and need." No, because there is no profit in doing that. They know that people WILL buy it even if its just a few 100 thousand or maybe even a clean million units worldwide and that's all that matters to them. Apple will just do exactly what they have been doing from the start, come out with products that they already have out (1st Gen iPhone/iTouch, iPod Nano) but instead these have a different design or a small little feature added (i.e. 3G/3GS iPhone and iPod Nano w/ camera lol) to them and APPLE says, "Hey! This is our NEW PRODUCT!" and then guess what? You will go out and buy it because you want the NEW not the OLD. I have the 8G iPhone, not the 3G, not the 3GS, I bought it off Craigslist for $200 brand new sealed in the box, when the iPhone first came out, why? Because I'm not an idiot. I know its all planned obsolescence. Why am I going to go out and buy a 3G or 3GS? So I can surf/download faster but then my battery dies quicker, lol? You know its only a matter of time before they release the NEW iPHONE right? The only way I'll buy it is if it has a BUTT-LOAD of new features and I mean A LOT not just video calling or they only upgraded the memory or the CPU, you have to really impress to make me upgrade and spend my money on something I know you'll just release a newer version of in a year or less.
Come on people start using your heads...when companies start realizing that we are not falling for their tricks and they don't make money off of us doing this BULLS#!+ THEEEEEEN that's when they will have no other choice but to start changing their ways if they want to stay in business.
Google "ZeitGeist Addendum" and watch the video if you haven't for those of you with 2 hours to kill, trust me, when you start watching it you WILL want to finish it.
I'm doing my part...start doing yours...that's the ONLY way we will see a change...

I have had all three generation of iphones. I only paid for the first one. When the second gen came out i sold my old one unlocked on ebay for $800 and was able to buy two new second generations. With some change left over. Then when the 3GS came out i did the same thing and pretty much got mine for free. I will do this every year if i can with every new iphone release. I may be able to do the same thing with the ipad. We all should know that every year something new will come out better than the first model. I really don't care about price i will buy anything that is the next new thing.

I just bought an Acer D250 (well, really it's the eMachines branded one from Walmart, but same thing) netbook to use in the kitchen and around the house as the quick goto web surfing widget when someone else is using the computer and I'm too lazy to walk across the house -- this iPad will make an awesome replacement and let me use the apps I've already got.
Downside: no flash means wife and child can't Facebook 'farm' and can't use it to stream Netflix... but I'll buy the top'o'the line one and sell it when the next one comes out (just like the iPhone) -- best way to preserve your investment.
it needs to run OSX86, then it would be perfect!

can someone please answer this question for me, is it possible to hack this iPad in the future and also use it as a cellular too?
01-28-2010, 07:23 AM #248
Someone needs to crack one open and take a look see. Knowing apple the next gen hardware is already on there just not enabled. Hell there is prob USB ports on the board and just covered up with the casing.

They say complete Browser Experiences... WHERES FLASH 3/4 of the websites have somekind of flash.
Even jobs went on the Ny Times Website to show off his iPad and theres was videos all over the page hahaha, so he skipped it and clicked on anything to load an article without video. FAIL
Secondly, The Resolution is a ******* POS.
Thirdly, How are you suppose to type on that **** for hours, SAY BYE to Your Healthy Neck and say HI to neck pain.
Fourhtly, The bezel is ******* ugly, I know its function but its way too big for that function, we are not ******* Gorillaz, with 3inchs wide fingers.
And Lastly ,
Its not best for internet: NO flash SUPPORT, basicly 3/4 of the internet
Its not best for music: Hello portability while lets say WALKING
Its not best for movies : Crappy Resolution
Its not best for email : You can't type on this for hours.
Its not best for photos : Ill give you that one, maybe its good for photos VIEWING. well hold on, theres no camera. So it sucks for this too.
Its not best for games: HAHAHAHA UR KIDDING ME JOBS, BETTER AT GAMING THAT A NOTEBOOK? this thing can barely play a super old opengl 3d engine made in 1998 with decent fps.
So thats it. Its Not best at anything, even Multitasking.
No stupid Multitasking, Hey JOB we're in 2010, sometimes we need to browse the internet and write an email at the same time. Byebye productivity.
Well maybe its best at Price because for 800$ you get a ****** tablet with 64gig and GPS. WOAH that a hell of a good price.
Kidding it sucks for this too.

You really need to go read apples site before you continue to type, you are freaking out about missing features it has. You are miss quoting the prices.
LOL. Go watch some porn and jerk off, that's your idea of multitasking, sorry it cant jerk you off too. Really, how hard is it to flip back and forth between the email app and safari, not very. Just because you can't open them side by side, refresh your myspace/facebook page ever 10seconds and refresh your inbox every 10 seconds for myspace/facebook notification emails doesn't mean you can't multitask.
He said NETBOOK not Notebook.
Resolution is perfect for the screen size. I guess if you don't want to be able to read the text on the screen you could bump it up. higher resolution would useless.
Flash = 3/4 of the internet? HAHAHA, wow... just wow... Flash sucks and I hope they never support it. Skip flash, lets get HTML5 rolling so we don't have to have special plug-ins to handle flash. That would be a REAL solution instead of making Al Gore type over exaggerated claims about flash usage.
As for are music, pics, vids, find me something better that's a half inch think and 1.5lbs.
The bezel looks fine to me after watching the hands on videos, gives you something to hold on to without touching the glass.
You obviously missed the game demos in the keynote too.
Next time, get the facts before you start spewing BS.
Oh, and buy a real camera... who wants low resolution grainy pictures anyways? Not me. I will stick with my D90 for pictures. Ill buy the case, keyboard and card readers for it.

Actually it has Bluetooth, VoIP apps are everywhere and if everyone catches this part, we now have MiFi. So yes It IS a bigger iPhone..... Nothing fancy here folks
01-28-2010, 09:53 AM #255
They couldve at least put one feature that nothing else on the market has. Like that one special secret apple element that makes the product so special. They really ran out of ideas.I'm MYAATT DAAAMOOON!!!

You know wot!!!!! Ive changed my mind about this and I do think its gonna be the device on everyones lap. When the devs start creating more powerful versions of photoshop etc along with all the books and e mags etc i think this is gonna rock and im gonna get one.
