    I took it to work today for the first time. My mate asked to see it (I havent stopped talking about it since I ordered it), and although at first he couldnt see the point, he is a huge movie fan and he loves it now just for the movie side of things.

    My other colleagues didnt seem to get it though - I must point out that most of them are women in their 40s and 50s, and generally see PCs as just another home appliance - if they have one at all. One of them asked what it was for and I told her I use it for email, the internet, books and movies etc - she replied "so its like a computer then?".

    In the end I used it for taking minutes in our meeting - something I had not even thought of doing. I never intended to use it for work purposes at all, but the notes app was quite handy really :P

    I think the guy was totally jealous and trying to get psychic revenue out of making you feel inadequate. It's a form of schadenfreude. The guy was a jerk.

    The couple of times I've taken mine to work, the response has been almost universally positive. "Oh cool!" "Oh my God, you've got one of those? Can I see it?" etc. Where I work is predominantly men between 45-65 and a few women between 35-55. Small % of folks in my age group (35-45).

    I wouldnt call his response jealousy. Its disgust at people who have to go out and buy the latest trendy gadget not knowing what it is or what it can do or what the competition offers, frustration at how Apple has become so rich from over-hyped products and irritation by the macevangelists that are constantly going around telling everyone how macs and apple products "just work" and are superior to everything else because they come from the almighty hand of Steve Jobs.

    I understand some of those frustrations, but doing what he did was far more obnoxious than all those things he hates.

    Its the arrogance and contempt of other people expressed in statements such as this that really piss me off.

    Virtually all items sold nowadays are "over-hyped" from burgers to cat food. To assume we are all still taken in by modern advertising is insulting, especially as the corollary is that "they" of course are clear eyed and far seeing.....

    My little iPad ain't no trendy gadget, it's a sturdy little work horse.

    ooooh shiney shiney!
