Whats the fuzz about the IPad

So Apple finally came out with the Jumbo IPod touch, and everyone thinks its either the best thing since sliced bread (really its just a bigger screen!), or Apple totally dropped the ball by not making it your laptop replacement.  My Take, it is for sure not as revolutionary as the IPhone, who took the clunky mobile space into the the new century by showing the handset manufacturers the power of a great GUI (Which is oddly weird that they ALL failed to see the power in one before the IPhone).  The IPad on the other hand does not replace anything we have today, its trying to be a NEW thing that we have to decide if we really need or not, a much harder task than asking someone to replace their exciting phone for something MUCH better. For me the only and i think the reason most people will get one is simply as a surf board, aka, a web access pad.  The other features are nice, but not ground breaking.   So the question then begs how many people need a surf pad?   Well time will tell.  I am for sure getting one, in about 11 months for myself for Xmas.

  1. The iPad is a little special but having played around with it for a week I have to say it works well for me. Sometimes you need more than a phone but it's inconvenient to lug around a laptop, and even if you have it, it's a bother to take it out (like on an airplane). In bed or on vacation it's just a lot easier to whip out my iPad than anything else.
