"What we're seeing is a desperate wish -- the last gasp of desperation. Editors and publishers and advertisers want to regain control of the media experience that the Internet took away from them. In their minds, this iPad is the magic pill that will make all of this Internet crap go away. Surely, it won't," Jeff Jarvis, the veteran journalist and author of What Would Google Do?
It’s going to be very hard to find enough time to use the iPad. When you’re at home or at work, you’re going to use your computer. When you’re on the go, you have your smartphone. If you’re on a train or a plane and need to do some work, you can use a laptop. When you’re doing something else, such as running, well, then your attention is focused on that. When, exactly, are you going to use the iPad?

I have to respectfully disagree , slightly .
The people at Apple are smart and very capable of creating good products . That said one has to wonder just what they were thinking when they decided to repackage and oversize an ipod and then pretend its some new product hoping people would buy it ?
iPad / Apple doesn't offer 4G.

I want one, some doctors already use a laptop with the swivel screen that turns it into a tablet. Very useful.
My friends love there itouch, and Ipad is just a bigger version. Plus you don't have to sign with a carrier unless you want 4G. I already want one of those electronic book readers, why not one I can download apps on, and listen to music. Plus the gaming aspect is pretty cool, you can steer a car by turning the screen.
I am waiting until it comes with flash though, so I can watch videos online. Plus maybe I can multi-task with it by then.
You can't persuade me not to get a tablet something, they are the future. Drawing with one is gonna rock!!!
