Apple A Forbes article notices that while the iPad's reception from the public and the mainstream press has been overwhelmingly positive, the prevailing sentiment among some alpha geeks has been negative to the extreme. The conclusion, of course, is that these people aren't reacting to what the iPad is, but rather what it represents: a violation of the ethos of the personal computer. The author of the Forbes article concludes that much of the anti-iPad vitriol is hyperbole, and doesn't help advance the cause. It's a thought-provoking question.

Apple is now the Sony of the 10s. THey produce overpriced crap and people line up to get it like they are on crack.

QFT. It's not that I *hate* the iPad, I just see it as a rather pointless gimmick (considering the non-crippled alternatives out there.) I guess it may fill someone's needs, but I suspect it's more about being seen with the latest trendy gadget.
