Yes it was right, and too many uses to list. The next model should be free for me...

Just simply read some of the thousands of posts here on the forum of happy iPad owners and the many ways they use their ipads....

I'd like a USB port

Can I ask why? I keep hearing this but for the life of me don't understand why you would want let alone need a USB port. I'm not saying you don't, I just really don't understand! :)
Maybe it is because even Apple tells us that things like that are important.
From this year, on Apple.com, where we are told why it is good to 'Get a Mac', (emphasized some key words):
3. Everything-ready.
Today's Mac is powered by the latest Intel processors, so customers can run other operating systems, including Windows XP and Vista—enabling them to run more applications than any other PC.

In addition, each Mac comes with industry-standard technologies for connecting to peripherals and networks, including USB 2.0 and Bluetooth. and all Macs but the MacBook Air have built-in Ethernet, and the Mac Pro and MacBook Pro also come with FireWire.
So you can connect to whichever external device you need.
or even whichever one you want.

File management.

I have stuff.
I have it on my hard drive.
I want it on my iPad and iPhone.

Why can't I simply drag and drop without using silly iTunes or resorting to some sort of slow Wi-Fi transfer??

That's an OS issue not a USB issue. Even with usb you stil couldnt drag and drop

You can email, sync wih itunes or use all kinds of apps for cloud computing. That makes a heck of a lot more sense then using some silly dongle that can break or be lost. And you can access it on any web enabled device with cloud computing.

For people who buy new technology some of us are stuck in the past.

As I said earlier, USB would ply work if the OS supports drag and drop. It doesn't so it would do no good.

I'm not drinking Jobs kool-aid. Blue tooth handles the periperhal issues and cloud computing can handle the files. Why would I want some stupid wired device on a wireless device. Other then my ipad and CF card, I don't use USB on my iMac and the iPad has a camera connect card anyway. My mouse and keyboard are Bluetooth and evening else is wireless. Why would I expect anything different on this device.

You're right. I guess the OP was asking more about hardware than OS. But still... Getting content on and off the iPad is just ridiculous.

Nope - mifi is a separate device with a separate battery that takes up extra space and requires additional space management.

I have a lot of things on my wish list, but I have also learned patience. It will either be added by Apple, or by an app. In some cases, the answer may be something that I will not feel confident about adopting. Life is like that. And buying the iPad was one investment that I am glad I made, even tho I am rarely an early adopter.
