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.

(um, pretty sure he was referring to the origins of the company, not present-state. Same with my comment on Gates. IBM thot Gates was a dope, figured there would never be any money in the software. Oops.)

I don't see any evidence of that. If you look at it from a market share position, then Apple is a small company compared to MS, but compared to most companies, Apple is very large and successful

Rockwell's correct. My point was that the OP was basically saying if Apple can't make it work, then no-one can...which is just silly. Never say never.

Personally, I think Apple botched this one. If they'd just added a front-facing camera and a USB port, it'd be hailed as the 'Next Big Thing' the world over. Without them it's just...to quote CNN.."a big iPod Touch".

I understand they do these things to ensure an upgrade path for v2.0, but it's bloody annoying all the same.
