Perhaps, perhaps not. When you purchase a car you check many things and research it`s capabilities. Even take it for a test drive. You buy it and are pretty damn happy with your cool new vehicle until the first time you pull into a gas station to top it off because it`s running low only to find outâ€¦..there`s no gas cap. There`s no way to get fuel into the vehicle. Did you think to check for a gas cap in all that research and test driving? No you didn`t. Why? Because every car you ever drove had a gas cap because having a gas cap makes sense and you just took for granted there would be a gas cap. A gas cap is necessary, without it the vehicle is all but worthless. Bummer. This analogy works well with numerous problems with the iPad. E-Mail for one. I researched and discovered I could e-mail with the iPad. It`s true I never specifically checked whether or not I could attach and send a file through e-mail with the iPad. Why would I? Every e-mail software I`ve ever used had this ability, it never occurred to me Apple would "move backwards" 25 years in e-mail technology on purpose. Without the ability to transfer files iPad e-mail is all but worthless especially since the ability to move files to and from the iPad is so limited to begin with. My bad. I took for granted the same elegant intuitive technology I have grown used to from Apple products would be present in their most "Revolutionary" product yet. I was wrong. Again, my bad. Now I have a question. What can the iPad do that a Net Book can`t?
