    There is already more content available for the iPad then I will be able to view/read/use in a life time.

Therefore, Apple is trying to negotiate a $.99 per episode for TV downloads. This is all to benefit it's customers. However, if they don't get this done by launch, it's by no means a failure as some would imply. There's no other deals remotely similar to what Apple was trying to negotiate, so it's a moot point. Idiot bloggers!
    very nice;but don't call them idiots, just uninformed.

    This Wall Street Journal report seems false. I know tons of developers and have inside info from analysts, that I cannot reveal due to NDAs, that the iPad Content is very very strong. I got to see a huge glimpse of the content last night at a conference on the iPad and Handheld technology.

    PS-Kyle, that commercial is too funny.

    Obviously you dont work in either field (as I do ) and dont feel the crunch of the internet taking away my job . I work for the local paper and we do the Wall Street also . Times are bad and it is a trickle down affect coming to more than just us . Think of the paper , ink , and chemical companies getting downsized because of technology . The daily paper wont go away just yet , but it is inevitable . How are people going to afford to buy this stuff (ipad) if they are not working ?

    Hope Apple will learn having a cool looking device does not sell itself, without people supporting it with content it is just a pretty hardware.

    Good point fallguy but you can't expect companies to stay in business forever when the general public is no longer willing to support an outdated form of news consumption. Times and tech are changing quickly. There are jobs that 50 years ago were needed but in today's economy are no longer viable. Change happens all the time. Those that take advantage prosper and those unwilling to do so get lost in the shuffle.

    While being on the money on the logic, I believe that speed in which the change happens is a bit too cutthroat. 50 years ago, or country wasn't so quick to throw entire industries (and their employees) out with the bath water like they do today. The current system of capitalism in America has really destroyed the concept of looking out for the "little guy". These newspapers will shut down, one by one, with some mudsucking jerk buying the company at a fraction of true market worth, and the owners will not even provide people like fallguy with the backpay/pension/benefits they are owed. Then the building will become stripclub or something. Despicable practices, but as long as you can continue reading the times on the crapper, who cares, right?

    Those of you who think I'm exaggerating, ever been to Flint, MI? Or just about any town where job cuts have decimated the local economy.
