    I already voted for multitasking but lack of flash has overtaken it. Found too many sites that don't function well without it. Found new one yesterday. Overheating and shutting down while using in the sun on a cool day. See the overheating thread.

    There’s nothing about the iPad I "hate", but I'm annoyed:

    1. By the fact that I have to hook up a USB cable to sync with iTunes. Why can’t this be done via WiFi? I'm gonna wear the connectors out.

    2. That it can't remember my password for the iTunes store.

    3. That Apple changed the behavior in the web browser class for iPad so it doesn’t support zooming (except the whole page).

    But they got so many other things right!


    Edit: After thinking about it, I do hate one thing: no user-replaceable battery.

    uhhhh, actually it isn't a USB Port. it's a 30 pin connector

    Note to gentlefury: Your attitude, behavior and level of (read lack of) knowledge are really quite poor. Better check yourself.

    What do I hate about the iPad? Aside from there not being a USB port, I hate that I had to get on my pc to answer this silly topic because I couldn't scroll within this window on my iPad.

    I love the iPad, but no flash and no USB are major issues with me.

    Oh, and why no spell checker here?

    To scroll within a window on a web site, use TWO fingers.

    The "Walled Garden" Mentality

    So many self imposed, annoying and sometimes petty restrictions, such as:-

    No SD card slot. No it wouldn't cost much or make the iPad larger or heavier. I do think that Apple has a phobia of having orifices in the iPad case.

    No accessible file system.

    No Flash. I wouldn't care except that it means that I can't access some web sites that I need to. I don't believe the battery life argument as I wouldn't be using it for long periods.

    Restricted video output from AirPlay. Why can't we simply see the Pad "desktop" on AppleTV.

    I could go on.

    Perhaps even more annoying are the excuses proffered by the Apple apologists. I don't believe any of them (very few of them anyway). Please don't trot any of them out in reply.

    When it comes time to replace the iPad, I will certainly be looking at alternatives, and issues such as the above will be a big factor (Flash may not be an issue by then).

    Thanks, that has been really annoying me. Now all we need is a way to select large amounts of text more easily.

    there is 10-20 things that make me want to hate my ipad.
    1) no USB
    2) even if you do get USB cable you can't use it to attach camera
    3) no internal camera
    4) no way to buy external camera and connect it (PLZ DONT TELL ME THAT I CAN USE AN IPHONE -- I DONT HAVE ONE!!!!)
    5) limited bluetooth use (i have to jailbreak my ipad to connect a mouse, WTF!!??)
    6) no real file manager to access photos, music, etc...
    7) no flash support
    8) iTunes (worst software that i have ever used)
    9) limit of 5 items per dockbar
    10) Steve Jobs

    Ugh... I can't believe that either.

    Worse, I either dreamt it, or misread something when I was updating Atomic Web browser. I could have SWORN I saw in the update notes that it now supported AirPlay. I couldn't wait to get home to try it yesterday. But, nope, it's not there--or if it is it is just for playing video.

    I am even jailbroken and have an app that specifically turns on AirPlay video in apps that don't already support. But it only works with video. So far it looks like only the Photos app is the only non-video app, that i have, which allows AirPlay on the ATV with more than just sound.

    Yet I am still amazed at some of things I am doing with my iPad. I just installed Air Display and am quite impressed. Normally my iPad pretty much just sits there charging when I am working at my PC. While I already have two displays Air Display has turned my iPad into a third. Pretty slick actually.
