Useless? I was tracking a package the other day, retrieved my gmail and the link for tracking with the ipad. All from the comfort of my bed.
I bought it specifically for browsing and so far it's exceeded my expectations. The one thing that does bother me is that the default browser cannot be changed, but I can live with Safari, no problem.
I've never had a need for flash. I have an Droid with flash and I don't use it there either.[/QUOTE]

They are selling well, and they will continue to sell well, but for someone who wants a little more from their tablet, they will soon have several quality alternatives to the iPad. Give it time, you'll see the Android tablets cutting into the iPad sales. I doubt they will outsell the iPad, or even come close, but give it time.

Yes, it's been lowered and the tinted taillights kinda give it a different stance.

Ah, the tail lights. I was thinking it might be a Sky, but the lights looked wrong. I've never seen a white Solstice (mine's Sly gray), so that threw me as well. Thanks for clearing that up.
Have you figured out how to print a document (after installing Weprint) from a document to a printer that is not wireless? I have an HP 5440 and will be getting a wireless printer next month - however for now, only when I am the print central app on my ipad can I print anything. Do I need to import? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
Calling an I-pad usless is... I dont know how to put it.
Read and learn about it and you'll see that it is not useless.
I can find a small rock in the middle of the road useless, but if I was a hard rock miner i can find a porpuse for it. I just wont buy it.
If you find the ipad useless, why buying it?
i do think when it came to buying the ipad it was over the fact that alot of people where thinking that would be getting more fuctions of computer instead of a basic all around device to use in one life..
the reason apple has the sales of the ipad is the one fact it can do the basic fuctions of the computer of surfing the internet --checking emails and sending emails and some other fuctions that people want on the computer in a light wieght protable device ..
Perfect actually. I just happened to have an apple wireless keyboard and that really completes it. It's almost like having a laptop.

I think I said this before in this thread but the darn thing without a case is just so slippery.
Geez Newfmp3 get a grip, apple is nothing like the Nazi's. This sort of hyperbole is both stupid and dangerous.
They made a number of decisions regarding the iPad with regard to portability, battery life, cost etc. which they believed were right for the gadget and it's limitations at that time. That it doesn't accord with your assumptions is frankly irrelevant. At least no firing squads or death camps were involved. If you feel it's such an affront to your beliefs sell the damned thing and feel free from oppression.
I for one love the curated experience. I don't need to run virus checkers and spyware/ Trojan checkers, I don't have to create an install point before installing a program. I just click install and it works. That's all I want from my gadget. Just that it works when I want it and goes away when I want it.
