For me, I dun really do multi-tasking and I feel that wasnt ipad's primary strategy as well.
IF (Big IF) i decide to get one, it will be used in following order:

1. Casual Surfing (wifi or bbom)
2. Watching movies
3. Light reading
4. Photo viewing
5. Music
6. Games
7. chat

many of u ppl gave jobs and apple too much credit....

for every iphone/ipods, there's a apple pippins or appletv......

the thing is, not every released by apple is gold.

in fact, if u r old enough, i'm sure u can remember some of the spectacular duds apple released back then.....


Apple currently still have what i called the 'obama effect'. When obama first came into office early last year, the american hailed him as the coming of christ and savior, golden crown, turning water to wine, halo and all. But alas, reality kicks in and now ppl realised that he is no god.

Same with apple. They make good (looking) products....sure.........but every product they released is a repackaging of an existing product......with a better casing. The mainstream probably will be drooling over their stuff but any decent technology users will be baffled by the stuff that they released.
Which tech company always release "hit" product? None.
These are business that take risk whenever they release new products.
Apple almost bankrupt few years back even got "loan" from Microsoft
But look where they are now. Apple Inc. is bigger than HP, Dell, IBM in market capital.
Point is Apple learned from their mistakes and now very profitable. You can have the best tech but nobody buys/uses.

I don't think anybody knows yet considering it hasn't even hit the shelves.

Well, Obama is still the hardest working president America ever got.... when asked about his less than popular decisions and how this will affect his mid term polls, he answered that he'd rather be known as a 1 term president who's done more for his people than a 2 term president who's done little.

Likewise, Steve Jobs is the best CEO any company has ever seen (and this has been validated by Harvard, Fortune, etc) and the company's products are always at the top echelon of it's product class and have the sales figures to prove it.

If your statements had even the slightest validity, then prove them with hard facts. Numbers and figures please.

They went bust before Steve was hired back into Apple.

I totally agree about this. People have still not realised that technology alone is cold and boring. You can have the highest spec whatever, but without the great user experience, it will be an epic fail. Just look at the iPod when it first came out. It was more expensive than most of it's competitors, it did less even. But it became the best selling mp3 player. Why? Well, most sour-pus will tell you it's because of Apple's Marketing engine, but any half-wit person will be able to tell you that marketing alone without a great product will never get you to the top. Until the clueless geeks realise this, I guess we are doomed to hear these nay-sayers flood Apple forums with their nonsense until sales figures shut them up.

My guess many tech manufacturer came up with netbook as the 'product' between a laptop and a smartphone. However, Jobs insisted netbook is not good enough to carry out the 'tasks' during his keynotes. He came up with iPad...
