If some one buy a new car and wash every 3 time a day. Other see may feel irritating . But if you play iPad 7/24 no one should brother you. If yes don't care what they though.. May be it is yr though ?
I don't currently own an iPad. I had no idea they were coming out until about a month before their release.
Before I knew of them, I mentioned to my father that I'd love to have a Kindle, so he bought me one for Christmas. However, I really wished he'd have gotten me an iPad. He did, however, buy himself an iPad after I sent him the video link from the Apple store. His was one of the very first released.
I wanted a Kindle because I'm an author and was thinking about publishing to Kindle format (I have done this already and my first book in a series of three is now available at iBooks! Whoo hoo!)
Anyway, I've been participating in the Kindle boards and the hatred for iPad users is thick over there. Having used both the Kindle and iPad I can say there is NO comparison to the two. The Kindle is an e-reader and the iPad is SO MUCH MORE.
I don't understand the vehemence a lot of people have toward Apple products. Again, I've used both Mac and Window's based PC's for years. I can say, from my experience and type of use, the only good thing the Window's based PC's are better for are playing games and getting viruses.
This comment is in no way meant to offend those that prefer the Window's based PC's. I was brought up with an Apple in the house and that could easily explain my preference. (Though... isn't Windows based on the Apple model?)
wow...it's different seeing your perspective.
Im quite the opposite...i love the attention the iPad seems to bring. So far i havent had any negativity shot my way...everyone is usually like "WOW" or "THAT THING IS COOL"...those type of comments, so i tend to walk around with it in my hands in public quite often...or course i have a death grip on it being that im sometimes afraid someone my try to snatch it out of my hands.
IPAD IS A MASTERPIECE!!!!!
IPad 16 gig ,iPad 2 32 gig & iPad 3 64 gig
I don't love the attention, but I don't mind either. Most people are just curious and often considering buying one and want to hear from someone who has one. The most negative anyone has ever said to me was a fairly innocent question about it being like a big iPod touch. My response to that was that it is just like an iPod touch except there is a ton of software that is only for iPad that does a lot of cool stuf you could never do on an iPod touch. I think a lot of people don't realize that the apps are a completely different format.
I've found that if you hold your iPad just right when people are giving you crap about how it doesn't do anything they want to do, you can cause light to shine in their eyes and temporarily blind them long enough for you to get away.
