    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?

    I wasn't referring to your post.
    My post was in general; it was a reaction after reading the leading tech blogs.

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!
    So crappy reception issues? The best I could get was a one month credit. I like you call bi-weekly/monthly to complain. I have ONE BAR tops and my home. 85% of the time I have No Service. I have to drive a mile and a half away to make a phone call from my cell phone. It has forced me to get a land line here (which I don't want considering I'm paying $120 a month for cell coverage). Eventually just last month they agreed to let me out of the contract 6 months early without any fees. I asked my father if he would let me on his plan so I pay him $50 a month now. Still no service though

    Actually that's wrong. The reason for the 3G delete option is to allow it to fit into a price point more people can handle. It's not really that expensive considering the price apple charges for the iPhone BEFORE AT&T pays apple. Also AT&T just dropped the unlimited plan by 30 bucks a month.. not sure what more you want price wise.

    I will buy the iPad two years from now. Look how much better the 3gS is compared to the firs gen iPhone. I know the time line between 1st gen and 3gs is longer.

    I seriously beg to differ with you on this point. The first iPhone was built MUCH better in terms of durability. The iPhone 3G was a BACKWARDS step in not only durability but also overall performance. If you put the 2 side by side and run apps the 2G has less lag and a faster chipset. The iPhone 3GS is not far off from the first gen.. MINOR upgrades to internal components to keep up with the App Store software... that's it.

    So that's why my 2G was soo smooth compared to my friends 3G which is laggy sometimes, too bad I sold it, I miss the feel of it

    Flash is a gimmick. While it does provide dynamic content for pages, often times it gets abused and used to created splash screen intros most people skip. 2Advanced is one of the few companies that I've seen that truely utilizes flash for what it should be used for.
