Apple So, yeah, uhm, I bought an iPad 2 today. I still don't think anyone really needs a tablet, but that doesn't mean I didn't want one. I wanted to wait until the HP TouchPad was announced, but now that it has, it seems it won't be coming to The Netherlands any time soon. As such, the iPad 2 it was. A few quick fist impressions.

iPad's, IMO over priced generic all in one gadgets. But hey, just because it doesn't fit my needs it does fit a niche for others nicely. I've toyed with a couple from those I know who have them. But much like smart phones while there may be a few neat features it really doesn't fit my needs. For a portable I have an Alienware M11x, it's nice and has the power to run applications like VMWare Workstation which I require but it's very portable.

A reader, the Kindle is the best IMO reader there is, eInk is awesome. Long battery life and I can actually read outside in the sun. The Kindle got me reading regularly again, love it.

Anyway the iPad does fit a niche for those who need/like generic all around devices. I follow a simple and basic philosophy, just use the best tool to fit your needs.

You are one of these guys who don't think their posts through well enough. Even if I call you out now, in a year you'll be raving about how much you love your iPad.

People who like "all around" devices are a niche? I could go on.
