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.

It probably comes with a EULA, which you consent to when you open the package it comes in, and which explains that you have not really bought it, but only licensed it, your use of it is only permitted if you consent to it, and that if you break the terms of this EULA, you will be in breach of various copyright laws.

It’s just like Apple products! You never own them, they just simply enter your life and then leave and Apple remain the sole owner.

It's like a religious experience; you supplicate Apple for their blessing, making the appropriate offerings, and then they grace you with their divine favor... for a time. And it is not yours to question Apple's infinite Wisdom; they will grant you their blessings, in their own good time, for their own good reasons!
