From what I understand does the OP prefer using iTunes to add content to the iPad, since OP's response is in red.

Couldn't care less if someone hates the iPad. It's not my fault they're poor and can't afford to buy one. . I'll be sure to throw some small change at them the next time I leave Starbucks
I like using diskaid to transfer contacts, voice mail & voice memo's, call history, text messages along with audio/video. And uses the 'file app sharing' similar to itunes. It also allows you to see the root folders/files on ipad. It's basically a pc version of the ifile app from cydia.

Ugh. I'm a longtime forum lurker and happy iPad 1 owner since day 1.
I will say that most of his criticisms were dead on. I agree with most of them. There are always ways to improve a product.
I was disheartened to see his real criticism overwhelmed by his ridiculous attitude. If he had just been quietly sensible we could have had a good discussion.
That being said, I won't debate all of the points but I agree with many of them and would have enjoyed telling him that while I agreed with almost everything he said I also felt that the iPad is the best tablet out there.
When someone creates hardware this good with a better infrastructure I will definitely be interested.
Gingerbread has some serious growing to do before it competes.
I have a feeling he was a former member already banned b4 coming back under a new name to cause some mischief. I wish the thread wouldn't have closed down so soon. We were flaming him pretty bad and was funny. He woulda looked like Freddy Kruger once we all were done with him. I honestly laughed my a$$ off when I first read his post. I knew what was coming next. Imactually found the thread very humerous. He said the compaq ipaq was better thn iPad. FAIL! Lol

I agree. He had valid points but it was the way he went about portraying them that cause his immediate demise. It was his language and attitude used. He could have stated his opinion in a more civil, intelligent matter. As everyone is entitled to their opinion BUT everyone doesn't have to hear u b$&@? About it in a childish way. I thought is was a bad aprils fool joke..lmao

Does anyone here know someone with an android tablet? Maybe we should have them let us know what it good about it vs. saying what is bad about the ipad. I think it may be hard to find one of these people.
I love my ipad, it fits my needs and there is rarely a time when I use my MBP because I can't do something on the ipad.
iTunes is not a great application. Having to let the iPad sync for 5 hours because it must make a backup every time you plug it in is moronic. Not being able to load music into the ipod application in any way other than through itunes is ridiculous. Requiring a sync to a computer to load movies into the videos application is ridiculous.

You can't use any site that is built mainly in flash like almost all car sites and ticket sale sites, etc. Having an "app for that" is not a replacement because its a pretty disjointed experience to have to jump through 5 different apps to handle something the browser certainly is capable of, especially given the hardware of the iPad2.
No Flash support in the web browser--Flash is dead. HTML5 is the future and most sites support both
Your answer to his criticism is "why use that feature?" LOL.
Poor still cameras – though, really, this thing isn’t meant for taking candids--Really, other than facetime, why would you use the ipad to take pics/videos
Those are helpful sometimes. Much easier to just use a thumb drive. Standard USB feature opens up the possibilities to what the device can do. Keyboards/mice, USB thumbdrives, USB peripherals, etc. Going over a friends house and you want to grab some music/videos, today you have to install either itunes or dropbox on their computer and then go through that whole hassle. Imagine if they could just hand you a thumbdrive and you could load them up in 30 seconds. Still left with the ridiculous limitation of iOS of not being able to import music/videos without the aid of a computer though.
No standard USB port--What would this bring? To access files? Ever hear of dropbox or box.net?
Yea, that was a dumb criticism of his. Maybe a couple tablets will have kickstands, most wont.
No kickstand – it cannot stand on a table without the help of a dock stand or a Smart cover--Buy a case
Still a nice feature to be able to replace your own battery, but again not an important criticism of the iPad when there are so many other valid ones.
Non replaceable battery--I have had my ipod for 3 years now and use everyday. Battery is still working fine. Non-issue
Your answer to his criticism is to buy a VERY expensive accessory? lol.
No stereo loudspeakers--Buy a dock with speakers. It is not meant for hi-fi output
Very valid criticism of his. Every other tablet will probably have GPS functionality with their wifi models.
No GPS receiver for the Wi-Fi only version--
I didn't realize your point and shoot camera had dropbox or box.net capabilities? Oh, you mean take your camera to a computer, pull the images off of the microsd card, sync them with dropbox and then sync your iPad with dropbox? Yea, that is seemless. . .
No memory card slot--Again, use dropbox or box.net to transfer files.
Not a big deal to me personally, but it means you can't simply travel with the iPad abroad and use regular sim cards for internet access.
3G model uses micro-SIM, instead of a regular size SIM--And?
Yea, but iOS does app scaling easily the worst among all major mobile OS'. Having a black box in the center of the screen is moronic, especially when the "retina" resolution is so close to the Ipad resolution. They should automatically make iPhone apps that support retina resolution full screen on the iPad. The reason they don't do this is so that you can buy the same application twice when the shiny new iPad version comes out.
iPhone apps designed for HVGA resolution squander screen real estate or look pretty bad uspcaled--iphone apps are not meant for ipad.
