    Apple tablet

    Anyone else watching this announcement? I just do not see how anyone is going to want a thing the size of a laptop with no keyboard.

    I think this will be the biggest failure for Apple since Apple TV or whatever that crap was.

    Re: Apple tablet

    As I said on Twitter, "Wow! Apple blows everyone away with...a HUGE iPhone. Not with that bezel. Looking forward to the reports of how world-changing this is."

    Haven't wanted an internet-only device since I got a smartphone. Previously had (and enjoyed) Nokia internet tablets.

    It depends on the cost. If its a $1000 giant iphone, it flops, bigtime.

    Re: Apple tablet

    A comment on Gizmodo's coverage of this...
    Oh, good it's called the iPad. I can't tell you how many friends starting their iPeriods who have been waiting for this.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    No Flash. This won't replace any computer until that's in there. No better than an iphone really.

    I am guessing there were no women in that meeting.

    Re: Apple tablet

    and it looks like theyre putting it on the AT&T network. #### that. ATT's network cant handle the iphone demand. How is it gonna handle the much more bandwidth heavy needs of an ipad?
