ipad got so many problems,but still can't stop people buying.Why?I guess just outlooking attract many,and some Personalize setting make you more comfortable.Specially,it never similar with any others,so if you are conditioned to use Apple stuff,you are in.
Adobe is not evil.Apple is evil.Apple will not play nice w the rest of the entire web just so they can try to dominate w quicktime. It is quicktime vs flash.Flash is free and comes available on like 95% of all computers. It is the method of choice for streaming video and it looks good too.It is apple screwing over people who buy their products by refusing to let it be used on it's iphone and now on the ipad.They want to control everything and lock out all other developers.
Is this all this thing is? A glorified Iphone? It's very limited and a ripoff. I thought it was supposed to be a portable computer tablet. It's being marketed as an internet portal? There is going to be a lot of people with vision problems squinting at the small screen. Thou shalt not have a device that's easily upgradeable among other things.
I'm desperate to read magazines on it; the Touch and Phone are too small. Books too - the Kindle is not in color.
I think there is very little that Lisa is saying that you can't already do on your computer. The only advantage here is that the Ipad is somewhat more portable.
The real issue to address is the relationship between Apple and Adobe. If popular media switches to a Flash-based media, people will be shut out from communications distribution.
Adobe is more evil than Microsoft.
YES! I just sadly placed hundreds of dear magazines onto the sidewalk. I lost the room for them.....
