I will be glad to eat my words if that day comes, but in my opinion the Ipad is going to sell like gangbusters.
I find this all funny and strangely familiar. Remember the Kindle? :-) It sucks, it blows, it's stupid. Uh, yea ok. But those same people wouldn't mind having the money from the sales that thing has brought in.
Here's what kills me most of all. The people who say it doesn't have a phone.
Are you kidding me?
Are you seriously thinking about not being able to put this big thing upside your frickin head and talking to someone?
I suppose some people would actually do that and feel ok with it :-) Wow
It doesn't have a camera?
Oh darn...you mean I won't be able to stick this large object in peoples faces and take a pic? Oh man...bummer.
Flash? Well, flash may go away. Things evolve and some things die. That's the way it is. It may not die. But if you think the lack of flash is going to stop the sales of this thing I would urge you to rethink that.
They say something in this video that is very true:

Something like "I don't have to conform to it, it conforms to me"...A tower computer? You're stuck to that thing like glue. You can't move, you can do anything except be there with it.
A laptop? I'm sick of those also. Leg chapping junk with wires and no battery capacity.
The first thing I thought not long after getting an Itouch was I wish this thing was bigger...if only. Well, now it is...
Well that's my take on the Ipad. Can't wait for it to arrive!
