    I still say the iPhone/iPod Touch will make a great game controller

    Love my iPad. It's a fantastic machine. Nothing in the world much less electric devices are perfect.
    There isn't anything else out there that comes close

    The iPad will only get better over time. I don't think i will have to upgrade the hardware for sometime. When we get to install os 4.0 this fall - forget about it!
    Apple Computer and Vespa Scooters. That's how I roll.

    Agree. But i wish it was running its own OS instead of using the iPhones. Multitasking is going to be great on this badboy
    It actually is. The iPad has completely different built in apps that are using a lot of the new iPhone 4 features that noone else has yet. While it will never actually look different from the iPhone it is not actually the iPhone OS...it has a lot more functionality..but Apples idea was to have a 0 learning curve. If you'd used an iPhone or iPod Touch you are already an expert.

    No matter what dramatic changes occur don't expect the look to stray from the iPhone ever.

    Also, the iPhone OS Style works extremely well. Why fix what aint broke.


    I got a phone call today from an old workmate who switched to Android on Sprint. He was absolutely miserable after having an Android for five months. He is looking forward to the end of his 1 year contract and then he is bailing. He said the iPhone was far easier to work with with its more advanced and refined interface.

    I was very careful not to rub it in by saying 'I told you so'.

    I was also able to convince him he needs to go to the Apple Store and look at the iPad. He has a Mac which he loves.

    Kickstand? Get a case you cheap *******! It is a kickstand and a stand.

    Really? Calculator and Clock? Go to the app store..there are plenty of free versions in there.

    I really like the calendar and I love that it syncs with Google calendar, that way I can make new events on my phone or desktop and they appear on my iPad iCal.

    User Accounts??? iPad is mine....you want a user account....GET YOUR OWN!

    Arrow Keys on the Keyboard? Its a touch device! What would be the point? The magnifying glass trick works exceptionally well on the big screen. Nit picking there!

    I agree with the Google docs complaint. You should be able to work off Googl's cloud in Numbers....This Apple/Google feud needs to end...the only one it's hurting is the consumer!

    So far the only complaints I've had have been some 3rd party apps having issues...but the stock bundled device has been a dream.

    Jumbo Calculator 1.0


    Category: Productivity
    Price: $.99 -> Free, Version: 1.0 (iTunes)

    Description:

    FREE for a limited time!

    Jumbo Calculator is great for anyone wanting the ease of use of a large buttoned calculator. While sadly you can't feel the exquisite texture of its large plastic buttons (and the included solar panel doesn't actually charge) Jumbo Calculator succeeds at its main purpose: adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, squaring and square-rooting.

    One size fits all. Priced at dollar store prices, anyone can afford Jumbo Calculator!

    An update was submitted April 13th, and will contain the following features/options:
    - Full calculator persistence (Jumbo Calculator will remember exactly where you left off when exiting and returning to the app; with an option to turn it off)
    - Key click sounds (can be turned off in settings)
    - Bluetooth keyboard and iPad Keyboard Dock support

    For those who are griping about the iPad not having a camera (Why anyone would want one is beyond my comprehension) the latest info says that Apple is looking for an engineer with camera systems experience for working on the iPad.

    I have begun to feel more and more at ease using the pad like a laptop. The typing is still slow but over time will get better. I just wish I had google docs on here.

    Thats too bad for your friend. I on the other hand love my Android which also allows me to wirelessly tether the ipad giving me 3g without having to buy the 3g version and also without paying additional for 3g access.

    But I was going to say one of the things I'd like to see is easier switching from one email account to another. Currently it just takes too many clicks (touches). Not a big deal but it could be better. BTW I love my iPad

    Flash Downer

    I thought I'd be able to replace my 15" 5.5 pound MBP in my Great room with the iPad. However, I spend several hours, in the morning, reading the NYT and other digital news, and am frustrated at not being able to view embedded videos supported by Flash.

    So I guess the iPad will go on a shelf in the computer room unless I want to read a book, play games, etc. I wasn't That troubled by lack of multitasking, as the A4 processor is very fast in bringing up pages. I do miss the ability to copy web pictures into iPhoto, and to more easily cut and paste. i wasn't under the impression that the iPad was a full fledge computer, but was naive in terms of how much web video is Flash supported. With my MBP I just opened "whatever" and Never gave a thought that Flash was behind the scenes.

    Jobs says Flash chews up battery charge due to excessive processor requirements and that HDML5 will solve the problems, but I'm not willing to forgo the Flash supported video in my news experience.
