Apple It's the most hyped device of the moment, a device that nobody has laid eyes on without an NDA death-grip. While rumour and speculation escalate (sometimes giving way to apathy), little has leaked out of Cupertino. But nobody seems to be asking whether this tablet thing will be successful or not.

I was being a little jocular with my wording, but my point was that the criticism was often way out of proportion. A missing feature like copy & paste didn't make the iPhone a useless toy, or nullify all its innovations, but you'd read lots of comments to that effect.

The iPad seems like even better ammunition and I'm sure it'll be used to reinforce the stereotype of a style-over-substance, more-money-than-sense Apple-user. Trendy Soho types sipping their skinny lattes and playing with their iPad... I'm not saying it's wrong - it can be pretty funny, and accurate, but this device would be perfect fodder for the critics.
