Apple Yeah, just in case people think we forgot: Apple launched its iPad today. It's just that since the rest of the web is pretty much clogged with iPad "news" items at this point, I don't really know what to add; who'd you rather hear from, someone who owns one, or someone like me, the small orphan child pressing his face to the glass of a candy shop full of delight he can't afford (because he lives in the wrong country)? About the only meaningful item I've seen today is Engadget's iPad review, so let's take a quick look at that one.

No, no, no, no, no, lol!!! That is the point - regular people do use things like smartphones because they have reached the point where regular people can use them. That is exactly what the iPad is.

They don't care about lock-down and all the other stuff we care about - in fact, they want all that so they won't accidentally screw things up.

We have all kinds of things we, as geeks, can work on, get into - there is no shortage. If we don't want an iPad because it contains elements we don't like or are absent, we have a million other things to attend to.

So many of you absolutely refuse to look at this from the ordinary consumer's point of view. If it's no good or unexciting to you, then it's crap. Open your minds a little bit!!
