Apple Even though I was extremely sceptical of this whole tablet thing, I bought an iPad 2 a few weeks ago. Obviously, this occasion couldn't pass by without a proper review of the thing on OSNews, so here we are. Inside, my view on the iPad 2, and more importantly, how my perception of tablets has been turned around completely.

I'd love for some biologist to see exactly what really nasty bacteria lives on your MacBook keyboard then.

At least with the iPad (other tablets are available) you can wipe down the screen with Anti-Bacterial stuff...

Actually the nasty bacterial transference is more likely to go the other way.

Generally, toilets are far cleaner than most peoples keyboards.

Close the screen before flushing and there's nothing to worry about.

Or, close the toilet lid before flushing, which is recommended anyway, since microscopic urine/fecal matter mushrooms up when you flush, covering about a 6' circle around the toilet.

I'd be more worried about what's on the toothbrush, soap container, hair brush, anything on the counter, etc since they're in the bathroom 24/7, instead of what's on a keyboard in the bathroom once in a blue moon.
