Apple Now that Apple has unveiled the iPad, people are wondering what the future holds for the iPhone OS platform and the concepts behind it. The iPad comes scarily close to being an actual computer in the more classical sense of the word, and a recent Apple job posting seems to indicated the Cupertino giant is interested in further moving the iPhone OS up the ladder. We ask you: would you be put off or excited about the iPhone OS' restrictive model moving up the stack?

Loaded question much?

Wow.

The question itself implies that to answer in the affirmative makes you an idiot. Why bother asking it?

In the intro you say the ipad comes "scarily" close to being a real computer. "Scarily"? Not "Amazingly", "remarkably" or something positive but "scarily".

The questions itself picks "restrictive" as the description rather than leaving it up to the users of iphone OS to make up their own minds and answer based on their own assessment.

Long toes?

The iPhone OS is restrictive. That's a fact. It is perfectly valid to put that as part of the question, especially seeing Apple itself uses the restrictive nature of the device as a marketing tool.
