    What is iPad ?

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXe3i42ptu4"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fihOmQY-JxY[/ame]

    New iPad commercial.

    I think the problem in most apple commercials is that they exaggerate way too much, however after seeing this I'm just happy to have one.

    I think one of the biggest problems with the iPad... is that it is sold by Apple! After all, what is Apple's claim to fame? Computers of course. While iPod and iPhone users know what an iPad is (a consumption device), I think a lot of newcomers to Apple products think that the iPad is a re-packaged laptop or net book and end up disappointed when they discover it only does apps from Apple unless they jailbreak and even then, they can not just put any "off the shelf" software on it.

    It's called marketing. And there aren't many companies in the world that are better at it, than Apple.

    Does anybody know the name of the app that is on the first frame of the video above? It's the one with nine thumbnails of web-sites in three columns and rows. Just curious.

    That's Safari.

    Third icon from the left in the menu bar gets you there.

    yeah, the owner of our company ordered one. Then a week or so later ordered a laptop. He thought he was going to use the iPad instead of a laptop. Of course, he cant browse network folders in the office, or run excel, or powerpoint, or demo one of our company's online products (its 100% flash). Its amazing how many people will throw down $700 for something they know nothing about. I researched for weeks before I finally decided to get the iPad. I have had very few surprises.

    Same for me, but the only surprise was explaining to "the boss" (and I don't mean Bruce Springsteen!) about all those iTunes and Amazon charges on the debit card!

    Ugghh, for the dude who said "I amazed at how many ppl throw away 700 dollars,"

    the iPad is a lot more portable than a laptop or net book, has an awesome touch screen, and many apps available, that alone is worth the money..

    Heck , just the fact that it is much more portable is worth the money..

    But did I mention the awesome battery life?

    The mention of the cost is about those who buy without studying what they are getting. The iPad is a temendous value, but cannot be everything for everyone.
