this is so funny!! after all these ppl ordering and OVERPAYING for this Ipad that is great because of what, now you over paying ppl will have to pay for updates and not sure if they will be full features for your over priced IPAD...
HAHAAAAAAA......haahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaa..... iM CRYING OVER HERE!! This is too much..
I can see paying for updates on the ipod touch... the price for one was not $5-900... so thats understandable,.. but as I mentioned in all my previous post about apples greed, this just shows my point being made clear over and over again.
Boy this is the icing on the cake right here.... I wonder what other "hidden" charges are not posted for the Ipad....
"boy I loooooove being right"

Vathgol, I find your post ironic considering your signature...respect other members indeed. The macbook is 999, but you had to pay $29 to get to Snow Leopard. Work costs money..if you can't afford it, stay with the previous version until you can.

I just don't get why people seemingly have no interest in a product spend more time whining about it than those "on the fence".
If you don't want one, don't see the need for one, for good god, just move on.

You realize this is just to give them some room to explore it as an option.
Things like this are changed all the time. If there is an uproar about it we probably won't see a charge.
This gives them room to work with it and from a legal standpoint no one can complain if they decide to charge for 5.0 and later.

LMAO. This thing is a piece of junk anyways. The only reason people will buy it is to say that they have it, or just because it has the apple logo on it. They won't even use it after the first couple days cause they will see how uncomfortable it is to use and that a laptop does everything the iPad doesn't ... which is A LOT.

I see failed written all over the iPad. People are going to get tired of this nickel-and-diming. I feel Snow Leopard should have been free because all it was is a service pack. And then you got the iPod that they are going to include bluetooth but you need to pay us $10 to turn it on. I'm starting to see a bad sign here and they wonder why people steal software.

And yes you're right.. Work costs money, but work doesnt mean you have to greedy as apple is.. so dont give me that spill on work costs money.. Apple has ALWAYS been over priced.... makes no sense on their mark up but yet ppl pay anyway...
Yes you can get leopard for $29, but see thats where I come in.. that "upgrade" is also the full OS which I can do a number of things with.. and $29 why pay $29 when theres google......
Its not about cant afford it, its about not being silly and overpaying ... thats just called common sense....
I can afford it... do I want to drop $900 on an UNDERRATED pc... NO.. not when I can get a netbook that can eat this ipad alive for $3-500 and can do everything...
That doesnt take away my comment bc its funny now ppl drop 45-900 and you would think updates would be free.....
Well to make you feel better, my updates for my iphone are FREE...

This is a discussion forum. People have been commenting like this on ALL iPad threads. That's what causes discussions. Otherwise why don't you just ban everyone that disagrees. Call this ModMyFanboy and have everyone agree with each other. Even though I wouldn't purchase this thing if I was a millionare, I still want to comment about how screwed up it is that the owners paying for Apple's flaws. So stop wasting your time trying to ask why we comment here.

ya know. ive really lost the spice and flavor i felt for the iPAd in the past. not that i think its worse than i thought it was/is/or can be. its just this waiting/waiting/waiting/rumors/rumors/waiting process weve been put through. so i just couldnt wait any longer, went out on Sunday and bought me a 40" Samsung LCD. and guess what. it connects to the internet. i couldnt be any happier right now. i'll get the iPAd next year.=]killall Terminal

IMO this is good....now when a hack comes out there wont be 50 million people who "accidentaly" updated because their cat jumped on the keyboard while they were in the shower...and the cat was able to install the new OS on the ipad thus wreaking their jailbreak lol.....When the police want to know where someone is, they ask apple.

People have been calling it a big iPod touch. So, Apple just listened to the criticism and are treating it like an iPod touch.
