    Yea I am bitter about flash too. I will be getting the 64gb version on release day
    Since you like throwing money away please pm me, I wouldn't mind getting an ipad if you threw money my way, perhaps then you can have someone to share the same "good points" as yours.

    IMO Apple needs to apply a bigger HD, flash support, and an OS that's not just for dummies. And for my own personal preference I would like to see a blu-ray player and some usb ports.

    ^ I agree a blu-ray player is a must because the tablet will suck without 1080p.

    Apple goes too far - The Inquirer

    But apparently he did. The Ipad is a netbook without the usable keyboard. It is an Iphone without the phone. It is a games machine that can't do graphics well. It is an e-book reader without the e-ink to make the print easy to see. In short, it is the veritable chocolate teapot of hardware.

    Its competition really is the Amazon Kindle, which despite using e-ink is also overpriced and extremely limited.

    Initially the response from Apple's fans was the usual "Jobs is a genius" nonsense. However this morning more rational heads are saying "What the...?" and "Wait a minute. Is he just trying to flog us a car without a motor?"

    Enough said.

    Shame on Steve Jobs, he is on their board of directors.

    Really though I was expecting there to be flash. I am sure if not jailbreaking will bring it then Apple will be pressured to eventually run it.

    I might buy the $499 WiFi only device. Just wish it had 32GB instead of just 16GB. I would mainly use it for an eReader as I've been looking at them lately. I also can see a use for it at home when I want to read things away from a desk on a bigger screen.
    see, these are the people that concern me. people seem to think that this iPad = eReader just because Apple said so and are going to offer books.

    Has anyone actually tried to read whole books on an LCD screen? How'd that work out for you? Didn't like it much? Then why in the hell would you think it's going to be different on this product, which features *gasp* and LCD display!

    Clearly you haven't been looking too hard at eReaders, becuase if you had, you'd already know that e-Ink > > > > > > > > LCD and it's not even close. It's like night and day. Like "I want" vs. "do not want eye strain". for brief reading, sure. but 300-page novels? Hell to the no.

    It frustrates me because e-ink is such a superior technology, but people who don't know any better (not to pick on you, southfrisco) are going to blindly buy this product *primarily for reading*, pay more, and struggle to read when they could have bought a Nook or Kindle and had a much better experience (if their goal was reading).

    Again, for short reading, I'm sure it'll be as good as any LCD is. But we should all be familiar enough with backlit reading to know better for extended reading.
