    I wish Steve Jobs could read this

    (I posted this at my website today)

    Nobody from Apple reads my web site - I can't say that with absolute certainty, but I don't see any apple.com in my logs - though somebody could be reading by RSS.

    If I could be granted one magic wish for today, it would be for Steve Jobs to read this one short post.

    The clumsiest thing about the iPad is cut and paste. The next worst thing is the on-screen keyboard, and both of these are easy to fix.

    Three things to do before releasing iPad 4.0:

    Add a Paste button to the keyboard

    This alone would save me much aggravation. A simple thing, but oh so useful.

    Have a Paste stack

    Look at Pastebot - you just take that, make every selection go into it and when the keyboard Paste key is hit, up that pops. That would be beautiful.

    Add a custom keyboard

    Look at Quick Word. I use that to store HTML tags, which are otherwise painful to enter.

    Add a top row keyboard slider like they do - which would also let you take out the .?123 key because those keyboards would be choices.

    And for crying out loud, would you let us put in arrow keys, command, control, escape and whatever else we want? You don't know what we want to type - let us fully control that. I use my iPad for ssh, RDP and Webex sessions; I need those keys sometimes. Even if I just VNC to my own Mac, I need keys that are not there.

    Just these three easy things. That's all I want.

    It is like most products, once it is out in the real world, people decide what they want and eventually most of it gets added as needed.

    You know what they say, you can wish in one hand and **** in the other and see which one fills up first.

    If I had an iPad in 1692 I would have been burned as a witch.

    People really do not get the idea how iPad is such a helpful device. Its even magical! I think a lot of people are discontented about everything. They keep in finding flaws about something.. Too Bad..

    Believe me, I love it. It *is* magical. And Apple is great at designung interfaces that work very, very well. But that doesn't mean that they get everything right the first time. I (and I am sure many other iPad owners) work a lot with text and also use ssh, rep, vnc and Webex frequently - more flexibility and secretion in keyboards and better paradigms for text manipulation only make a wonderful machine that much better.

    LOL Recharging too ...
