    Did it also mention the fact 100% should have waited for a cheaper, more open alternative?

    no, it also failed to mention a third of ipad users just use twitter to say they've got an iPad before going to something that has the right aspect ratio for films, or something which can display webpages as you know, they should be.

    Maybe because there isn't anything else they can use that "just works"?

    yeh my vaio P has never just worked, ever, once, in its entire life.

    The reason I'm getting ready to drop kick my SQA-5H is because its taken effort, sure I can test a PSU, I've got a stupidly over powered fluke 123 for the job, but now its re-building the dynamic raid I can only hope. I don't want to know. I'm a geek who's been dealing with this type of gordoning all week and now I just cba. Time to play some more of RUSE followed by some CS gun games me thinks! If my P series ever did something like that it would find itself replaced so damned quickly.

    My point is just works is subjective, an iPad can't view a film well enough for me to begin to tolerate, web on it just doesn't work any better than my phone and god damnit I'd never think to use it for reading a book on!

    But hey, if it works for them thats fine, however I would still say that this shows that iPads could easily be a flash in the pan, a many million sold one, but plenty of people buy things and then seldom use them.
