    Re: iPad is awesome

    I'm not an anti-Apple person at all (I've had every generation of iPod), but do you have details on exactly what the iPad does? It seems to me like it's a bigger iPod touch mixed with a little bit of a Kindle - is that pretty accurate?

    uhh there has been spell check on iPods/iPhones ever since they released. 4.0 actually has a dictionary so you can replace words and etc.

    Re: iPad is awesome

    I want to hear from someone that owns one and see what it can actually do. I've heard horrible stories about it but from second hand sources.

    I just find it funny that it's trying to sell it as a kindle when it isn't a kindle. Kindle specializes in reading books and has a screen for it and is run by Amazon the largest bookseller in the world, IPAD is a computer screen and I would imagine the screen would hurt your eyes.

    So how is this any better than the tablet PC's that have been on the market for years? It is basically a laptop/tablet with less features.

    There was a kid on Cyride yesterday that was watching a music video on an ipad and dancing in his seat. I guess that's one cool feature. Oh yeah, and it's shiny.

    Re: iPad is awesome

    The only thing I don't like about the iPad is the fact that you have to pay for internet access through AT&T as it is not WiFi accessable.

    Oh, that and I'm pretty sure the second generation will be the iTampon.

    I didn't realize that the internet was through AT&T. Now I think it really sucks.

    Re: iPad is awesome

    There are two versions, a Wi-Fi only version and a version with Wi-Fi and 3G service through ATT. I have the Wi-Fi version and I love it. I previously had a netbook, and this pretty much replaces that device. IT can't do everything a netbook can, but it does almost everything I did with my netbook. In general I use it for web surfing around the house and on the go. I'm taking it to europe with me in a week as my primary "computer" so I don't have to haul around a laptop or even the netbook but can still do all my e-mail, web browsing, etc on it via Wi-Fi.
