    Link: iPad Failures & Alternatives: Is Their Goof Good? - Apple got it wrong this time, according to just about everyone, and here`s why. Also a link to alternative tablets.

    The iPad might have been good if it was, y`know, an actual computer.

    Is this the guy they were talking about in "20 things we already know about the iPad"? The guy who`s going to hate it at first and then write a column about his transition to the device?

    In summary: Apple sucks, before you`d need an average sort of person to tell you why, but now even the most stupid of users know why they are throwing their money away.

    Apple doesn`t usually suck. Usually there is some genuine innovation or surprising ability in their products that makes people want to buy whatever it is. The iPad breaks this trend. Apple effed up, big time.

    Apple always got it wrong but the average consumers eat it up. There are better alternatives to the ipod & iphone but Apple`s namebrand is enough for it to sell well. The ipad will sell well and Apple will make a new version a few weeks later anyway.

    Apples target market:

    i.e. anybody who doesn`t know how to work their way round microsoft office.

    ipods and the like are pretty cool, its just you have to break it away from the company to get the fullness of it. the Macintosh Computer on the other hand . . . .

    People can say Apple is stupid as many times as they want, but the thing is, Apple has a much smaller customer base than windows in general, and most of the people who buy Apple products are loyal to Apple, so Windows isn`t going to succeed just because every single person isn`t going to buy an iPad.

    Everything is biased, and if you can make money by it, you will be super biased.
    I hear that if you make enough money by bais alone, you can shed your mortal coil and become money backed by the selling power of bias (better than american currency which isn`t backed by anything at all except blind faith).

    Though I hear if you do that your brain becomes a liquid pile of ooze unable to preform the most common forms of logic or reason. (cough Fox News cough).

    Apple products:
    "It has a sleek beautiful design to make things simple"
    "What about software from outside sources"
    "You mean not from apple? HAHAhahAH.... oh your serious"

    I really really really urge everyone on IAB to go look for old forum posts and news articles discussing the iphone/ipod. Seriously.

    Cnet: "Apple is slated to come out with a new phone… And it will largely fail."

    Microsoft CEO: " is the most expensive phone in the world and it doesn’t appeal to business customers because it doesn’t have a keyboard which makes it not a very good email machine… So, I, I kinda look at that and I say, well, I like our strategy. I like it a lot.”

    Dvorak: "Apple should pull the plug on the iPhone"

    Cooltechzone editor: "The iPhone is going to be nothing more than a temporary novelty"

    Microsoft CEO: "There’s no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share."

    Motorola: "How do you deal with that? How do they deal with us?"

    Seriously. Go have a look around. Regular old forums are twice as funny.

    Yes, the pad thing is funny, but it has been done, and done, and done again.

    Not to mention I work in Telecoms and I`ve already heard the joke "what do you call an iPad on a WiMAX network?" "A Maxipad!" 5 times.

    I have an iPod Touch and I love it, but I don`t think this will work. It`s basically just a bigger iPod Touch, not enough of a computer to appeal to the netbook market, and too big to appeal to the iPod Touch market. The Dell one looks great however, I can`t wait for a cheap tablet computer that will run Windows 7.

    Mac-users are tools. Refusing to see Apple as anything but "God" of hardware and design and fails to see that they are actually the biggest monopolistic piece of crap out there.
