    As we know ipad is a great device but at the moment it has its limitations too.
    Especially multitasking and flash thing.
    I am kind of annoyed at mutlitasking not being possible?
    what annoys you the post?

    Well don't be annoyed for too long, OS 4.0 now has Multitasking support.

    HTML5 takes care of FLASH


    The iPad isn't a LAPTOP or DESKTOP replacement, its the Magical device in between.

    If you were at the coffee shop spying over my shoulder this evening, you would think my iPad usage was borderline multitasking, creating, surfing, researching and just down right amazing! :)

    IMHO the iPad is about as limiting as ones own imagination, and oh there's an app for that.

    You can do some multitasking

    Some of the built in (official Apple) applications do multitask. For example, Mail checks for and sends emails in the background, iTunes will play in the background, and Safari will do some things in the background as well.

    In the case of Safari, you can use it as a music player for streaming music stations to get around the problem with Pandora not streaming in the background.

    Check this thread:
    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-os/1...c-background-without-itunes-using-safari.html

    Not exactly Pandora, but until iPhone OS 4.0 comes out, not at all a bad workaround if you want to listen to music while you're doing other things.

    What do I hate most about ipad.

    There is not anything I "hate" about my Ipad. There are two things that are annoy me a little but I can live with it:

    Fingerprints

    App store prices-Take 1password for example-I had it for the Iphone/Ipod Touch and liked it. I really did not have to buy the ipad version but thought it would be cool. For 6.99 I am not impressed.

    I want to see some package pricing for apps that will run on the Mac and my Ipad. For example if I buy a new version of Iwork for my Mac I would like to see some kind of discount code for the App store that would allow me to buy Iwork for my Ipad. That would be awesome but I doubt we will see that.

    this is the one thing i can not understand when people say about the whole thing about not haveing a camera or the multi tasking ..it can multi task like the one post told you how to do it ..

    my thing is more for a basic checking of the emails and send a few emails here and there i need to send ..checkng my website i go to daily along with the online tracking of the items i order for personal use are where they need to be with the tracking number to see where they are at ..keeping track of the book and dvd library along with my oversized ipod touch mp3 player unit ..that it ..i do not need to lug a laptop around to do those basic fuctions when ipad serves those fuctions very well ..plus cut down on the items i have to carry with me on a daily work and play

    You know what I hate the most?

    Being on break between classes, trying to study, or prep for a quiz/test using the GREAT education apps available, when someone walks up to me to ask me about the iPad. If they just have a couple questions I don't mind, but then when they start talking about how they read on the Internet that it's really not worth the money and it can't do Flash and can't multitask, no camera, etc, etc. It's happened 4 times over the last week, I was nice enough the first three times, but the last time I told the guy if he hated my iPad so much, he should leave me alone and not ask stupid questions about it.

    I like my iPad, it's perfect for what I need it for, I don't need anything more than it does. I just hope this newness wears off soon so people will stop approaching me about it. It's interrupting my studies.

    I totally agree. Some people are just jealous because they can't afford to purchase one and so (to make themselves feel better) they have to criticize someone else who does own one.

    If I were to say anything is physically disliked it's fingerprints, but as long as we have fingers that can't really be solved too easily.

    As for software my only complaint is how the app store is handled. It really is annoying to navigate and discover is basically nonexistent if it's not on the homepage.

    Other than that no complaints here!

    I dislike the lack of a Usb port - I have a 3G air card for work that would be great to use with my iPad, since I cant tether my bb curve

    That would be an apple 30 pin connector on the iPad, thank you very much. Not a USB that easily accepts a sierra air card.

    Secondly, I love my iPad, but the title of the thread is "what do you hate the most"--- Its not really cool for a moderator of the forum to then jump down people's throats when they post....

    Now, to turn it back to you---- what do you think microfiber cloth is for?

    It actually is a USB port, the female dongle is on the way...whether software will be written to use additional hardware is up to the developers.

    Well then, two things I hate about my iPad.... #1- having to use a dongle to use any USB devices (that may/not be supported) #2- the dongle for a moderator on my favorite iPad forum...:D
