Apple I had written an entire article on the debate about whether or not the iPad is a pure consumption device, but realised I could summarise the entire debate into a single sentence: it's the difference between 'suitable' and 'ideal'. You can ride a unicycle from Amsterdam to Paris, but that doesn't mean it's better than just taking the car or the Thalys.

Kroc, I'm pretty sure you are confusing "turing complete" with "not locked down, I can install what I want." The iPad hardware is turing complete. Arguing that it is not is pretty effing stupid.

Same idiotic arguments about whether or not a playstation 3 or xbox is a "computer" or not. Yes. It is. It just isn't a /general purpose/ computer.
