    Not disappointed at all. Since I've had the Itouch for over a year and the iPhone 3gs I always wanted a larger version.
    Just give me my Slingplayer and other apps I am using.

    What ever extra comes with it is a plus.

  2. Ads

    Actually, there is one thing I'm disappointed about, and it's not directly related to the iPad, but the iPad advertising campaign.


    I *really really* wish that Apple would remove the word "magical" out of it's iPad advertisement. That is such a terrible word! You aren't marketing this device to 4 year olds who believe in magic, you are marketing this to adults, come up with a better adjective to describe the iPad.

    I read an article somewhere that the reason for the different form factor SIM card was to prevent you from taking the SIM card out of your iPhone and putting it in the iPad when you wanted to use it. Who really wants to pay for a data plan for the iPhone and the iPad?
    So ones current data plan won't work for the ipad? One would have to get 2 data plans?

    That is the way I understand it at the moment.

    We will have to see when the device actually ships.

    I was hoping that they had more content available for it at the time of the unveiling. Like magazines and more news type media.

    Other than that quit impressed. Very elegant machine.

    As far as Flash I'm with Steve Jobs. The heck with Flash. HTML5 is the way to go. Other web sites are will be switching over from flash like Hulu.

    Apple rules
    Apple Computer and Vespa Scooters. That's how I roll.

    They'd have had a lot more content if the iPad supported Flash.

    Flash will continue to be dominant for quite some time as long as IE doesn't support large chunks of HTML5. Flash will continue to be the first choice of media owners who create content for devices with iPad size screens (i.e. laptops/netbooks) because it is more ubiquitous than anything else. And the media need eyeballs if they're to able to afford to create content that warrants some kind of video player (and judging by what I heard at a recent conference I attended there's going to be a lot more video content on publishers' websites).

    If the iPad becomes a huge success then there'll be an explosion of content, but that success is far from guaranteed when mac devotees like me are looking over the fence to see if the grass is greener with the competition.
