    Math said: Why on Earth are you even on this forum? Your posts have been nothing but incendiary and trying to mix up trouble since you got here. There is a word for that: troll.

    ---------

    I'm not a troll loser, I asked a question you calling me A troll makes u look like a troll..

    I don't knock apple, I have an iPad and love it, and even if windows came out with a tablet I will keep my iPad, even tho there are things I hate about apple, like it makes you install iTunes and u have to have a credit card to install iTunes, just so that will make it easier to buy apps and music, and movies thru iTunes..

    I don't know of no other company that makes you input a credit card just so you can install the OS..and use ur product, even as greedy as MS IS, THEY NEVER make u input a credit card to use ur product..

    well, you should know that competition is the main reason why companys lower their price in their products also is why they make them better faster, to compete..

    if it wasnt for competition and comcast was the only high speed internet provider they would still be charging 39808954 dollars a month for their service..

    so welcome competition becuz Apple will make it better, faster and with a smaller price tag..

    Thanks. Maybe next you can help us with that whole supply/demand thing.

    Back when I was in college and you were likely a gleam in your dad's eye one Saturday night, we were given an example about the importance of innovation in business. They talked about a carburetor company that went under, despite a stellar reputation and excellent quality in their products. So what happened? Everyone moved to fuel injection.

    Apple didn't invent the tablet market. Similar products have been out there for years. They made the first successful one because they innovated, rather than simply trying to make a pc with touch capability grafted on. And as long as those companies keep attributing their failure to win the market to "Apple fan-boys" rather than poor products, the less likely it is we'll see a winner come from them.

    A quick perusal of this forum for non-trolling purposes would tell even the most obtuse Apple-hater that about 50% of iPad buyers here (like me) never owned an Apple product before. That's a large part of why this forum is growing so quickly - it's attracting people that didn't have an established relationship in the Apple community already. The real Apple "fanboys' already had websites to go to.

    Microsoft, nor any other company had the faith to bring out an iPad when it was an unknown. The pundits predicted a good years run would be 3-5 million. They have already met 3 million units in less than three months. They are on track to produce up to 15 million in its first year. The iPad is a great success, and Apple deserves all the kudos for that. They took the big gamble and made it pay. The idea that someone else can step in with a copycat and beat its sales is not likely.

    It's a colloquialism, er, expression meaning "before you were born." Similar to geezerisms like "back in my day" and "when I was a lad."

    The expression is " I was doing X before you were a gleam in your father's eye", meaning I am a lot older than you and have been doing this for longer than you have existed. The correct response is "Yeah, but I learned how to do it right".
