    No need for me to buy an anti-glare cover, the smudges, and smears fit the bill! ;)

    Ya lack of flash sucks, and the fact that if you do get a site with video it is through an app that looks like it reconverts the video, which likely means it is somewhat stale. I was taking an online course and the site had flash so I could not do it on the iPad. I know there are apps that let you share the desktop, but that is no good if someone wants to Ouse the pc.

    Also what about filesharing and printing? If I had a Mac would this be possible? Kinda dumb that it is not included, other than finding an app, I shouldn't have to get an app for something so basic, and you ussually have to buy one to get full functionality

    Has anyone else seen just how small the front facing camera is on the iPod touch 4g?

    Why can't Apple come up with a camera/webcam that connects to the camera kit so that we can all use Facetime?

    And don't tell me it's so that Apple would be unable to sell iPods. I bought 2 iPod touch 4gs already and am thinking about a third.

    Steve (Jobs), are you reading this? Please give me a camera for the iPad.

    I agree with you. It's too slick. Also, my holding hand goes to sleep after about 10 minutes, which is painful as well as annoying. One would think that an intelligent person would stop using it, BUT....I love it too much![SIZE="[/SIZE]

    I don't have a keyboard, but I use a stylus, which I like better than regular typing. I don't have a dock/charger either, so there's no need to put the cover on and off. Other than my numb hand, I'm fairly well pleased.

    We need FLASH support.

    That really all that is missing.

    I can deal with thingies like poor printing and absence of Flash but why can't the iPad be a standalone device if one would choose so?

    The lack of Flash is a big deal when so many websites are going that route. (e.g., I have yet to find automotive [brand] website that doesn't use Flash.) Apple will be forced to somehow add Flash or forget using it as a browser.

    Apple cannot be forced to do anything. Steve Jobs will go play in a corner by himself before he gives in to implementing something he doesn't like.

    I want Flash on my iPad too, but it doesn't stop me from using it as a browser for most of the sites I visit. If I really need to check out a site with Flash, I do it on my PC at home. But this is also the reason I'm buying an Android Tablet early next year, but I will still keep my iPad as there are many apps not available in the Android Marketplace that are available for iPad.

    Being that I just purchased an Ipad yesterday I would have to say everything is a big annoyance, as this is my first time ever owning an Apple product. But the biggest annoyance for me so far is Flash support and learning Itunes.
