Apple This is what we call an epic blunder of epic proportions. The article that used to be here, was submitted to us in full, with Tom Krazit as the submitter. As it turns out, though, this article is already published at, so it's pretty clear someone kindly submitted it to us, but included the whole of that article. For some reason, I let it slip through without checking if it was actually an original - which I normally always do. Nobody contacted us so far, but I'm still incredibly sorry about this.

I've had a tablet, and it was of no use to me whatsoever. It was indeed a waste of money so I sold it and made my money back thankfully.

At the moment it's all hype, pure and simple hype. People jump on bandwagons like theres no tomorrow, and thats why you're seeing a huge increase in sheep, erm sorry, people buying these things.

Give me a good keyboard any day. I predict laptops will bounce back within the next couple years after everyone realises that tablets aren't much use other than glorified kindles.

I guess it depends what you want to do with it and what you expect from it.

My wife and I find our iPad very useful, even though we both use it in different ways. If I include my son we all three use it in different ways even.

Some people can type very able on it. I can too, if I really want to, but most of the time I don't. It just doesn't feel right and it's not as convenient as a real keyboard. Then again what I do with it doesn't involve much typing.
