Apple A Forbes article notices that while the iPad's reception from the public and the mainstream press has been overwhelmingly positive, the prevailing sentiment among some alpha geeks has been negative to the extreme. The conclusion, of course, is that these people aren't reacting to what the iPad is, but rather what it represents: a violation of the ethos of the personal computer. The author of the Forbes article concludes that much of the anti-iPad vitriol is hyperbole, and doesn't help advance the cause. It's a thought-provoking question.

It may be a Cool Gadget, but its not a real computer until you can scoop out the gunk it comes with and install your own stuff in it.

Imagine buying a PC from Dell or HP or whoever, and having to use it with the 10 Gig of bloatware on the hard drive and recovery discs.
