    OK, lets look at this rationally. Here are your issues with ipad and my response why they don't make sense.

    iTunes required for uploading content--Not sure what the issues is here since this is a great application to maintain all content.
    No Flash support in the web browser--Flash is dead. HTML5 is the future and most sites support both
    Poor still cameras – though, really, this thing isn’t meant for taking candids--Really, other than facetime, why would you use the ipad to take pics/videos
    No standard USB port--What would this bring? To access files? Ever hear of dropbox or box.net?
    No kickstand – it cannot stand on a table without the help of a dock stand or a Smart cover--Buy a case
    Non replaceable battery--I have had my ipod for 3 years now and use everyday. Battery is still working fine. Non-issue
    No stereo loudspeakers--Buy a dock with speakers. It is not meant for hi-fi output
    No GPS receiver for the Wi-Fi only version--
    No memory card slot--Again, use dropbox or box.net to transfer files.
    3G model uses micro-SIM, instead of a regular size SIM--And?
    iPhone apps designed for HVGA resolution squander screen real estate or look pretty bad uspcaled--iphone apps are not meant for ipad.

    OK - for those of you who don't know what the above post is about, we just recently had a poster who had some pretty severe things to say about the iPad. Those are in black. This poster's responses are in red.

    The original poster is no more - he has gone to that place in the underworld where all failed tablets reside...

    So what he was trying to say is: THIS IS THE BEST INVENTION SINCE WHEAT SLICED BREAD. I just forgot to take my Prozac so now my depression is outweighing my mania. It's so good that I can't even be happy enough!?!!

    Install DiskAid,trial version, on GF laptop then just drag&drop the file and then use oPlayer from app store if native movie player won't play movie.

    So, let me get this straight. You giving your opinion on issues that people have with the iPad "debunks" all of them? I'm going to try using this with my customers from now on and see how well it goes.

    Now that I found the other thread with the guy with the name that doesn't fit him, I think you sleighed his life.

    I am glad he is banned.

    All the moderators agreed that he was 'extreme' and was deliberately trying to provoke contentious conversation....

    iPad Forum tries to keep this a friendly place -- PM me if you disagree and we can have a conversation about this....

    From what I understand does the OP prefer using iTunes to add content to the iPad, since OP's response is in red.

    But otherwise Goodreader is a really good solution, especially the ability to add/remove files/folders wirelessly.

    Couldn't care less if someone hates the iPad. It's not my fault they're poor and can't afford to buy one. :). I'll be sure to throw some small change at them the next time I leave Starbucks ;)

    I like using diskaid to transfer contacts, voice mail & voice memo's, call history, text messages along with audio/video. And uses the 'file app sharing' similar to itunes. It also allows you to see the root folders/files on ipad. It's basically a pc version of the ifile app from cydia.

    I'm not a big fan of having to go through iTunes for certain things either. And a USB port would be nice. I don't think those criticisms are invalid.

    Ugh. I'm a longtime forum lurker and happy iPad 1 owner since day 1.

    I will say that most of his criticisms were dead on. I agree with most of them. There are always ways to improve a product.

    I was disheartened to see his real criticism overwhelmed by his ridiculous attitude. If he had just been quietly sensible we could have had a good discussion.

    That being said, I won't debate all of the points but I agree with many of them and would have enjoyed telling him that while I agreed with almost everything he said I also felt that the iPad is the best tablet out there.

    When someone creates hardware this good with a better infrastructure I will definitely be interested.

    Gingerbread has some serious growing to do before it competes.
