Some of the current Apps look amazing and different and as time goes by we'll see developers getting more creative with the interface. I was disappointed at the unveiling, but now realize that what will make this device amazing is the great Apps that will come out tailored to it.

It's so exciting to wait for a device that comes first in your generation. Not to mention netflix is a go.

I just laugh at all the ppl who paid tons of money for a basic computing system... On the home page of this site, you see the youtube video of the person unpacking the ipad.. you're looking at over $1000+ (if he bought wifi and 3G)
I just can not comprehend how ppl follow apple like a kid in a candy store and will pay whatever it takes.....

If you got the money to spend then why not. Why do people pay for a porsche when a audi can do the job. Or you could keep moving down the bar; why pay for a audi when a vw can do it; why pay for a vw when a bicyle can do it. Why have an iPhone when a cheap free phone can do the job.
If someone has the money the go for it. It is not fully about "Apple fanboys" all the time. I see this as a great living room device. It happens to be the first out the door in the slate area. JooJoo arrived today but that is 500$ too but has limited use. If the "courier" device actually came out people may flock to that. It is not fully Apple like I said but more of limited slate devices that are actually here now.
Nobody cared for laptops as much because they were not practical back in the day unitl Apple busted the scene.

I think after a year or so when these are getting out for sale used I'll be getting one. I'm cheap like that

I think it's funny and a little sad how people complain how other people spend their money. All points to jealousy to me. Because unless the iPad cost you that big promotion and ran off with your wife, I can see no other reason why you troll around and attempt to piss on something we all are excited about and came here to discuss...*
That's like if I were to go to the android forums and sign up for an account just to say the droid sucks. Pathetic. And that's how we all see you. Pathetic. As much time and passion you put into hating this product makes me beleive, deep down you want one really really bad. *It's like the nerdy guys in high school wondering why that hot chick is going out with that dumb jock... He hates the jock... But he would trade places with him in a heartbeat...[/RANT]
FYI, you missed the point. People are complaining that the iPad is an oversized iPod touch. If the touch gets you already from point A to point B, what is the point of getting an iPad that does the same thing? Now the car analogy was introduced saying a ford focus can get you to point A to point B, so why buy a Porsche? Simple answer, because although it's true that both with get you there, but one will be more pleasurable to drive than the other... As is the iPad.
The one life to live story was basically saying to not complain how other people spend their own money, that what is money good for if we don't get to waste it on unnessesary toys and gadgets? All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. I get no sexual themes from that message... Not sure how you do.
Point of both messages, worry about how you spend your own money and don't complain how others spend theirs.

Perfect interpretation of what I was aiming for.

The list of things I've dropped more money on over just a matter of a couple of hours (gambling, strippers, concert tickets, etc. etc. etc.) is really quite lengthy. Not to mention the 10's of thousands of put into lesser computing products over the years. Christ, it's the same price as my first iphone, less than my first "smart phone" and like 1/4 the price of my first computer.
So for me, and I'd imagine many others, saw some previews, liked what I saw, wanted one, and the price point isn't exactly breaking the bank for me, so I bought one.
That this is a problem for you, and your need to waste so much time whining about it is what's difficult to comprehend.

Just kidding...i'm not even gonig to bash the thing anymore. All i saw was a guy busting out more accesories from his bag than anything else. I think between the keyboard and everything he spent the same money as a 23" iMac would cost. <\----does that count as bashing? I love this game!

So again what is your point on how versatile this thing is?
BTW Apple can not take criticism and only give preview iPad to its devoute followers, no wonder they are getting good reviews. Wait until it gets released hope people really start taking apart this thing, expose its weak points like a real review should be.
