    Hi Folks,

    I've been following the coverage of the iPad in the tech media and frankly, I find it very biased and negative. I don't think the iPad is perfect, nor will it save the world from nuclear destruction or end poverty. But it looks better as a portable media device that Windows devices I've seen so far. I've started a blog that I hope will provide more balanced coverage of the iPad at

    Hope you can browse by every once in a while!

    Nothings perfect. But things can be good and even great. Im not judging the ipad just yet since it hasn't even come out in stores!

    None the less, WELCOME TO THE SITE. You seem very cool, and very experienced. Glad to have you aboard the Ipad train. Have a seat and enjoy.:)

    Welcome to the site Mark. We are enthusiasts here but I do believe once the device comes out it will receive more positive coverage.

    Criticism is a good thing. The next iPad will be better.

    I agree Mark. There seems to be a lot of criticism about what is not available on it as yet. I put it down to very impatient people who not willing to wait. As for me, I already love it. I did not thing Apple could do it again but they sure did. This beats kindle and any netbooks out there hands down.

    As a photographer it is the ultimate portable portfolio that I can take anywhwere, get work done and look cool doing it.

    Don't worry about all the negative press. Normal people like the iPad, most super-geeks hate it. I learned a lesson a while ago, you can NEVER satisfy an internet nerd. You can come out with a system like in the movie "Surrogates" and geeks would still complain that it wasn't "real enough", or "OMG there's no Flash support in the surrogate!!"

    Take anything they say with a grain of salt.

    Welcome!

    I'm really waiting until I get my hands on one and even then, you can't say. It'll take some app writers a good 6 months to really figure out how to take advantage of the platform.

    Look at the quality of iPhone software coming out now vs the first 6 months of iPhone release. Big difference.

    Thanks for the warm welcome

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for your comments. Seems like my concerns about iPad coverage resonated with many of you. I've posted another article to my blog at Mark's Tech Chat. This one involve the selection of the core technology for the Apple A4. My blog's gotten alot more technically detailed than I intended, and I'm thinking of breaking it up into a "general interest" page and an "In Depth" page featuring complementary articles on the same subject. Wouldn't mind hearing comments about this idea.
