Wow. That's not sounding good. I don't like choices being taken away, especially when it comes to stuff like this. The iPad is a great device for magazine reading too. Too bad.

If you don't like your choices being limited, you're in the wrong product line. Steve Jobs was a giant in terms of understanding how best to structure a consumer experience. And he had an ego to match. Consumer choice was not a priority; consumers could make the wrong choices. If you don't like Steve's choices, buy something else. Just how obsessive he was about such things is clear from his recent biography. In his last days in the hospital he insisted on choosing what he considered to be the best designed oxygen mask and demanded that six models be presented to him so he could choose.

You learn to use your car the way it was designed. You probably don't fret over the fact that you didn't get a choice of the user interface for the radio; you simply adapt. It may annoy you for years but you're willing to put up with it because you like other aspects of your automobile.
Newsstand is an ugly pimple on the iPad's lovely face (imo). And I'll do what I can not to use it on principle. But it's just one more annoyance on that side of the iPad scale. So far, that side is outweighed by the iPad's benefits.
