    Google screens apps as well, just not to the same strict guidelines as Apple. But this is due to the open source nature of Android. Google welcomes apps that take advantage of the OS to make it do things it wasn't originally designed for, Apple does not.

    I do not intend to get into an argument here however point of sale custom apps and apps used by Mercedes for sales staff plus insurance agencies form completion plus restaurant ordering system and many many more are examples of taking advantage of the operating system for the ipad, iphone, ipod touch and it is more than what the consumer can do at the current level unless they want a custom application. Maybe you should explain what type of applications you mean as your statement is too broad and frankly does not make sense as you have provided no examples. The above was not what Apple promoted the iPad could be used for it took smart developers and companies interested in improving their productivity and reducing the use of paper and to look at the iPad and Apple,s iOS and develop applications to do this, further more which I feel is important major corporations are as one would say are pushing the envelope to get as much out of the Apple iOS as they can.

    I don't need to provide examples, just do a quick Google search and you will see Apple has blocked several apps from the app store that would have undermined it's own software. Google Voice comes to mind right away, but there are several others.

    Oh ok but I have google voice installed on both the iPad and my iPhone so I am confused. Go to iTunes or the web site
    Google Mobile App
    Search Google using your voice.*. For iPad and iPhone

    I know its available now, but it was declined multiple times over the last two years because Apple didn't want it doing something that the iPhone already did.

    For comparison, Android phones have had it approved since early 2009.

    Actually with the Whisper phone app, calls come in thru the speaker very loud n clear. Remember, Ipad has a built in mic so u use that to talk. If u choose, u can use a bluetooth or plug in headset. I have the plug in one wit earbuds n mic on the cord. Works great actually, n its Free. ;-)

    Dear FatalDesain,

    Is Desain even a word? Did you mean Design?
    I suspect that most of us are glad you gave up.
    Like "deckyon" I had a long rebuttal post ready but decided not to waste anyone else's time reading, not to mention server space.
    I felt I had to say a bit though.
    P.S. The first person I heard say that iPad was not a computer was Steve Jobs. He was wrong too.

    Cheers

    Second comment to FatalDesain,

    You say AT&T is raping "some people" and 16 GB is plenty. I too have about 30+ GB loaded with very little music, mostly apps and photos. Remember that no one is demanding that anyone get 3G.

    Sorry, I couldn't help commenting on this too.
