    Apple hurting Adobe?

    This. Flash is a horse that should have been put down long ago were it not already dead. It's a resource-hogging, kludgy piece of crap that's long past it's sell-by date. Laptops, let alone the iPad are going smaller and thinner; if you want halfway decent battery life, Flash has got to go...

    Pictures of iPadForums.net on your iPad?

    No, thank you for the site! In my case, it was, "Gotta love getting up at 5am and driving to the closest Apple Store.". :D. Not to mention thanking the powers that be for coffee....

    AAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!!! still not delivered

    Should have met me at the Southcenter store--by 9:38am, I was back in my car. And they were handing out coffee and warm Mrs. Fields chocolate chip cookies..... Sorry that UPS is being a bugger to you. :( Just read your last post--I'm really sorry. That sucks big time.

    Late to the party. I was actually back in my car by 9:38PDT.

    Apple is being reckless!

    I don't get the distinction you're trying to make. Since they're selling 3 different product lines in numerous locations, the plural "supplies" is correct. That's not being reckless, it's being truthful--"We can't guarantee how many there will be, but we'll sell 'em until we run out." Sadly...

    For that price, does it come with somebody to carry my iPad around for me? Yikes! :eek:

    Apple is being reckless!

    If people don't pay attention to the bit I bolded up there, it's their own darned fault. Being up-front with people about availability is not "reckless". "Reckless" would be saying, "Hey, everyone that walks in the door will walk out a happy iPad owner!!" when you can't guarantee that.

    I'll be bouncing between here and another forum on my iPod while waiting. Maybe we need t-shirts.... :D

    Travel bag for your Ipad

    I went with the Booq Taipan Shadow XS here - iPad cases by booq I like the idea of backpacks or slings, but I'm paranoid about having spendy stuff out of my immediate control and view. The Taipan's small enough to wear like a messenger bag and still have it under your coat.

    What is failure or a product?

    True, an iPad would be better for hospitals and such. When my Dad was in his last hospital stay, they had a laptop or notebook computer in each room for tracking meds, vitals, etc. A unit that a doctor or nurse could carry around would be so much easier than each of them having to log in and...

    What is failure or a product?

    Seadog, is this the article? Analysts Ask if the iPad Can Live Up to Its Hype - NYTimes.com I didn't see them saying that it would damage Apple's reputation, just affect stock prices (which may amount to the same thing. I never majored in business.) And I especially liked this quote...

    Internet on ipad

    Amen! I wish plugins would just go away; it'd make using my Open Source desktop a lot easier! And you're right: use proprietary code and people get cranked; don't use it and people get cranked. It's the Kobayashi Maru of coding and I'm happy to see Apple opting for standardized code.

    Internet on ipad

    I don't think anyone's "scared" of Flash, it's just that Flash has become outdated. There are a number of problems with it if you're designing websites. For example, if you embed info in your lovely Flash page, it's invisible to search engines. It's not uniformly supported (see Apple among...

    iPad in-store pick up list

    Southcenter Mall, Tukwila, WA. Probably between 7 and 8 after I call and confirm that they're opening at 9am and not their normal 10am.

    (shakes fist at Living 2345) Man, I was going to be good and not order/buy any more accessories until I actually had an iPad in my hot little hands, but that soft gel case....the colors....dang.

    iPad sold out? apple.com store dates changed

    According to the Mac Rumors article, they won't be carried by the online store at bestbuy.com and they will only be available in Best Buy stores that have a dedicated Apple store-within-a-store. Also according to the article, that's 675 of the over 1,000 Best Buy stores nationwide. So no...

    New to the Apple Kingdom

    Well, there's our problem right there--we're using different definitions of "navigation". And yup, you're right--I'd think the iPad would be a lot more cumbersome than a Garmin or equivalent for the job. Not to mention that it will likely fall under my state's law that says, "no looking at TV...

    to brave the early morning crowds?

    Having never been to a release day event (other than for Snow Leopard), I can't say how they'll handle things. As it stands, you can wait in line, try to game it by getting there at 2:00 and possibly still having to wait in line or you can have it delivered. If you choose to order it by mail...

    Wot_Fan already answered this, but when it says, that 3G uses GPS to find your location and give you directions and routes, that sounds like a navigation application to me.

    iBooks app, Kindle app or Nook app, which will you use?

    I have a Nook and I'm looking forward to the iPad. E-ink is nice, but it's a pain not having backlighting. Barnes and Noble has also been slow getting publisher agreements signed, so the selection is rather limited. I'm thinking that Apple won't make that mistake!

    From the Apple website: "iPad with Wi-Fi finds your location using known Wi-Fi hotspots, and Wi-Fi + 3G models use Wi-Fi, GPS, and cellular towers. So you can get routes, get directions, and get there in no time."

    What accessory do you think you will need

    I ordered up a dock, an Apple case and a BT keyboard. I don't know if it counts as an accessory, but I also ordered a Booq Taipan Shadow vertical messenger bag that's supposed to fit the iPad. I think I'm set for awhile.

    Greetings

    Hello, all. I reserved a 64gig iPad at the closest Apple Store. I'll be another of you all waking at o'dark thirty (assuming I can fall asleep from excitement the night before) and driving 42 miles to stand in line with my brethren. Why, oh why hasn't someone invented a way to warp the...
