In the News An interesting discussion is currently raging through the world of computing, or more accurately, through the world of bloggers and analysts. It basically comes down to this: should the iPad be included in laptop and desktop sales figures? If it is included - Apple becomes the largest PC manufacturer in the United States. But, if the iPad should be included - why not the modern smartphone?

What, before the iPad has been activated, and without plugging it into another PC? The iPad cannot be used out of the box until plugged into iTunes. You can’t jailbreak it in this mode either without plugging it into a PC. Ergo, the iPad is a PC that requires another PC; jailbreak or not.

Any apple store will be more than happy to activate it for you.

Will the Apple Store do this without plugging the iPad into a PC?
