The difference between men and boys is the size (and price) of their toys.

It's just a status piece.

Ralph defending it was HILARIOUS. Typical fanboys can't bring up a decent comeback. Like when someone calls into Bubba's show, saying he's a fatass and he can't talk about Sarah Palin in a good sense.

Bubba: "Name three good things that Sarah Palin has done."
Caller: "You're a fatass!"
Bubba: "See? You can't do it, can you?"
Caller *starts shouting over Bubba before hanging up*


It's the same thing with Ralph.

Hey Ralph.. what will you do when the battery needs to be replaced?

iPad is neat if you're grandma and you want to watch some TV in your rocker or email the kids. It's a safe environment for people who aren't as computer savvy.

If you want to get actual shit done, you'd probably want to get a netbook if size is a factor. I'm sure there will be netbooks with touchscreens if there aren't already. iPad just isn't worth the price. You could get a full-function netbook for less, and some even have 3G now.

Some people will get it for the look at me look at me factor. There was a guy quoted in a news story that said he would buy a toilet if it had an Apple logo on it. That's pretty sad. To be fair not all people are like that. We have some people on the board that love Apple, but their not that stupid.

Years ago I was quoted as saying you could put the number 3 dale Earnhardt logo on a dried up dog turd and people would buy it. Well I think it's time to update that phrase to the new millennium.

"you can put an apple logo on a dried up dog turd and people will stand in line for hours to buy it".

Canada Eh!
Exactly. If jobs shit in an off white box ralph would go on about how fantastic it is. The ipad is a cool gadget but its not much more than a giant ipod touch. Which I already have. So I won't be getting one.... Ever.

I'm shocked that they sold 300,000 on opening day. Weird.
i was reading on drudge that a lot of the hype from the morning lines died down by the afternoon. i hope this thing proves an overall flop, just so ralph has wasted his "hard earned" howie cash.

I'm sure version 2 will be much better than version 1. same as iphone 2G, 3G, and now 3Gs. For now, I have no use for the iPad.

Ralph is a typical Apple fanboy. It’s a religion to them. It doesn’t matter if it is functional or just a toy, it is an Apple product. I remember back in the 80’s Apple ran an ad on TV that was a parody of the book 1984. Thousands people all dressed the same repeating the same mantra about PC’s until a Mac evangelist breaks the spell. Kinda ironic eh?

lol I found this on MSLSD written by a apple fanbot no doubt

Apple, Microsoft hit midlife as fresh, frumpy
Microsoft is still bigger company — for now — as Apple gains momentum

I mean, get it if you want a toy to kill some time and play games and shit. That's a great reason to buy it if you've got the money. I've got an Android smartphone, myself, the iPhone's new competition.

But if you want to be productive you really need a proper computer with a keyboard and mouse at this point.
