http://www.apple.com/ipad/

more like gigantic, ugly, piece of shit iPod Touch. What the fuck were they thinking with this? Who wants a tablet with no handwriting recognition, only supports the app store, no Flash support, no usb ports, and god knows what else? Sure, it's "only" $499 to start out, but come on. I can do almost everything this thing can do on my iPhone. The iPhone can get away with that stuff because, well, it's a phone.

I feel like I'm watching a video from The Onion when I watch this promotional video. I still can't believe this is real.

I'm also pissed that I sat through an hour and a half waiting for the supposed announcement of firmware 4.0 for the iPhone, only to get NOTHING.

But but but Chaos it's like holding the INTERNET in your HANDS as you SURF it! It really is quite magical because I don't know how it works! :isuck:

Okay I won't bash it too much. I'm sure its a cool device like any other of these tablets that I wouldn't pay 500 dollars for. But they present everything like they're changing the world and it just looks ridiculous.

haha this is what happens when something is hyped for years..yes I said years.
It turns out everything people predicted it would be and the apple fans are OOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH OMG FAP FAP!
Everyone else is just mocking it for being a 10 inch ipod touch.

So I was not blown away nor letdown just ..."yip it's everything people said it would be" Since it's Apple I am sure it will be a major success and the world will make i pad clones ..hell at CES everyone was already showing off tablets and some looked just like ipad.

So once again it will just be another somethng that was already out but Apple makes cool to have.

Fear not Chaos you can get female version OR the 1987 bowtie model!.
:P

i watched the original iPod keynote presentation from like 1999 or 2000, holy shit was it hillarious "we have CD players and CD players that play MP3 CDs... but what if there was a way to carry your entire album collection on one device?" Honestly, it was an insanely profitable idea, I wonder if apple really had the original idea for the MP3 player though.

Nope they didn't AG there were others out but Apple made a nicer looking product and simpler to use plus launched itunes along side it so yeah as usual Apple takes something already out and makes it popular.

In fact Lenovo at CES made something looking exactly the same with an actual SSD inside that was larger and other better products at CES but doesn;t matter since none had a Apple logo.


Oh and I just saw this and found it funny.

Apparently MADTV already thought of this years ago:
