Sounds like a sales pitch to me. you know if you buy directly from china I found prices close 80 bucks for that stupid ipad thing.
I have looked at the ipad and it's nothing new no new techology. This technology has be around for a long time.
Oh you mean tablets? iPad is not a tablet... need proof? Both HP and Microsoft killed their new "tablet"
lines once the ipad went platinum in just a few weeks...
This isn't about the technology... its about how its all put together... I'd hate to have a product designed by engineers as it wouldn't exactly
be user friendly and complications are something they tend to justify....
Anyway... I've never been able to purchase a tool such as this which doesnt make me fiddle with the operating system etc...
that a look at his article:
the cpu is either the same or similar to the iphone.
Is that why my ipad works so much better than my iphone? Once again... who really cares whats under the hood? I only care about the user
If your not a hardware guru or a computer geek. Then you won't know whats under the hook and just fall for the marketing gimics.
You are hilarious... actually 3 years ago once I first installed VNC on my iphone I said "What I could really use, is this level of mobility with
just a bit of a bigger screen... and sure enough they made it for me... so what marketing did I "fall" to?
Apple made a product that I desired to have... simple as that... I wish more companies thought exactly like me
They you think that this is something new but in reality the hardware and software ideas has been around for a long time.
Yeah and? Hoew come no one put them together in such a great way before? I'm not interested in ideas, I'm interested in actual things that I can
That's like poo pooing the univac, because babbage had the ideas decades before....
I mean what is new? they have 256mb or ram yet my desktop has more then 4 gigs of ram?
The hardware seems less then of a desktop or a laptop. ya I know this is a tablet and what do I expect...
once again... ipad is not a tablet.... both HP and MS are waking up to this after they both killed off their brand new "tablet" products...
I know tablets have a purpose if your a doctor then yes this can help you look at x-rays and other stuff mobile while with your patient. I mean it
can help those areas but I don't understand why young people or people that have no need of this device goes out and spends 700 bucks for something
that you can spend 400 or 500 bucks on a laptop that has better hardware.
You really seemed to be focused on the hardware.... what good is hardware if the software, OS, etc isn't integrated into one beautiful user
experience? I really could care less what hardware is being used... the ONLY thing that matters to me is the user experience....
For example, I'm typing this post on my ipad, while sitting on my back patio drinking my morning coffee... and this thing just works.... is ultra
light, never hot... a battery life that allows me to use it all day, and I do mean ALL DAY.
I would rather buy laptops for mobility. I wouldn't want a tablet for mobility unless I was doing a business where I need to sign something or have
someone else sign something... tablets have a purpose mainly for business where mobility is important and the laptop can't offer that amount of
I HATE laptops... they are heavy, too damned hot to actually put on your lap, and require big bulk bags in which to store things like power supplies
etc... I can put the power supply of my iPad in my pocket! But in reality don't need it...
I take business trips a lot... and now that I don't require anything but an agenda sized tool to handle everything else I used to need a MacbookPro
the ipad is fast... it's elegant, I can QUICKLY switch between apps, and even better kill any process I want without it asking me "are you sure?"
Were the ideas for this around before? Sure.. had anyone actually had the commerical power to put it together in such a perfect way? Not that I have
And btw... $700 is nothing for something as great as the ipad.... plus, as a business expense, who can afford NOT to buy one?
I'm much more mobile now than I was ever before....
Ok... time to move to the couch, so I can continue to enjoy even more coffee while using my ipad to bring an uber efficiency to my productivity.
