I see the ipad as an entertainment device. Something to surf the web, watch movies, or play games when I am bored. Even with iWorks available this isn't something I want to write a 20 page paper on even if I have a keyboard. I have seen netbooks used for business and school and this wont do good for both.

Well Bill is right. The Ipad isnt very impressive. Its a huge Iphone, with out the phone. Its totally worthless outside of a few niche markets. All Tablets are. This one is just even less usefull because it doesnt have the external connections that most tablets do have. Plus it only has a one gig processor.
For the same price you could by a laptop that is fully functional and usefull and will run circles around the ipad. Its one of the dumbest things they have come up with. All it is is a movie player, whoopeee. I can do that on my iphone.

Jealousy doesnt fit the character profile of a man whose personal worth is TEN times that of Steve Jobs. I mean, really?
Because last time I checked, manufacturers on the windows side have been trying their hands at Tablets for YEARS. Thats precisely the reason that people were/are upset with the iPad. They waited all this time to get into the tablet segment and the best thing they can release is this?
As far as the future upgrades are concerned... I didnt buy my 5 series BMW because of what I hoped NEXT years model is supposed to do (I hope). I bought it because it kicks *** right now. Buying consumer electronics should be approached the same way. In my opinion, you give Apple way to much credit for this. If this were anyone else's creation youd be blasting it to high heaven.
I recently sold my MBP and bought a VAIO F Series Laptop. Fully Loaded, i7QM Processor, 330m Graphics, 1080p screen, and BluRay. 1400 bucks. That included my name being engraved above the screen. And to be quite frank, as I've gotten less interested in the App Store/Cydia/Rock lately, if the iPhone refresh doesnt give blowjobs while making delicious Julienne cut french fries, I'm selling my 3gs and moving on to something else. The love/hate affair is getting old.

Just a question. Will the ipad run ipod apps or it's own proprietary apps?

apple is plainly taking its customers for a ride with this new iPad which is a completely worthles, useless GIANT iPod touch. Of course Jobs knows that people in US would buy anything that he throws out...even his garbage.
I think Bill Gates was very diplomatic in his words...if it was me I would be blasting crap at the device.
