Apple In what everybody already saw coming for weeks (months) now, Apple has just unveiled its latest product, a tablet called the iPad. Basically a bigger version of the iPhone, Steve Jobs presented the iPad during a press event in San Francisco. The most interesting news? It's powered by... An Apple processor, called the A4. The most shocking news? The price.

The only thing that Apple really nailed for this product is marketing. I can't believe how people were falling all over themselves about how Apple would revolutionize how we interact with a computer, and now this??!! Come'on even you die-hard fanboys have to admit that after all the hype of the previous weeks, this thing is very underwhelming. It's basically a scaled up IPhone. I remember the comments about some of the apple fans about the crunchpad news here. That thing is/was infinitely more useful and better looking than the IPhone, but a lot of you guys were saying it's useless and to wait for the "oh-so-great" ISlate (or whatever it was called at the time).

With the IPad I really fail to see what it great about it. No multitasking, that's just stupid on a device like this. A normal TFT, makes it useless for reading IMO. You can only install apps from the appstore, that's a total dealbreaker. I don't want an Apple approve what sort of programs I can or can't install on my PC.
