Apple The beauty of the internet is such that every opinion has become worthless; this goes doubly so for those with publish buttons on (relatively, we're humble) major websites. For every opinion, there's a matching counter-opinion, and that's great. Yesterday, we linked to an article by Mark Pilgrim about tinkerers and the iPad, and of course, someone was bound to disagree with that one.

It will never happen! there is a large percentage of the population that believes in open systems and open specifications. Linux is a success, and there is a ton of open software and hardware out there.

For me, the closeness of iPad is a non issue. The IPad is not a general purpose computer, it is an internet & multimedia appliance.
