    How to make the iPad a better music device

    I was at Apple's iPad launch on Wednesday, and maybe it was just Steve Jobs' reality distortion field, but I don't quite understand why the haters are piling on. A lot of PC-centric commentators are dismissing the iPad as an overpriced gadget, wondering why it's lacking features that are standard on even the cheapest notebook computers, like Flash support, multitasking, USB inputs to connect peripherals, and video outputs (HDMI would be nice).

    Notebook replacement, there are tablets coming out very soon that will have a ton of features the ipad doesn't. Similar size, shape, and cost, but a crapload more to offer. There is a reason why it's getting negative publicity. It's an overpriced tablet with not much to offer.
