Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Where it concerns generally pointless gadgets that serve more as status symbols than meaningful tools, yes. Then again, I've never felt the need or desire to buy a cell phone so I'm clearly not the target audience.

I was under the impression the iPad's like an iPod for senior citizens. At least that's how a family member explained it.

Regardless, not interested. I don't own an i-anything. (Mainly because I have no income and because these products force you into depending on Apple services/software instead of being more compatible.)

It makes a very pretty dumb terminal, when all your multi-tasking is happening on a real computer somewhere else.

I will want an Ipad in a few years when they make one with all the stuff that is missing in the current one.

Pretty much it does everything my phone does, on a bigger screen.... and not make calls.

If the ipad heats up as much as the iphone while in use, it might be handy at frying bacon.

Latest reports indicate it can't handle direct sunlight. Close enough?

These things aren't very mobile, is it?
You can't put it in your inside pocket, and from what I see, I can only put it inside my leather wheeled travel case (if you want to look inconspicious, that is- but once you take it out, from what I see, you look ridiculous, especially on public transport)
iPad is too much of a retarded compromise that never worked.

I don't see why anyone would publicly take an iPad out.

If that keyboard was full, as in every single key without having to switch the menu thing, I'd imagine it'd be great for note-taking during college classes, as opposed to carrying a laptop. So, basically, I would consider buying this if it ever makes obsolete student laptops (for student laptop reasons, like note-taking, organizing, and etc).

You need to pay attention to what NemZ writes.

Hmm... Video clips aren't welcome, I guess? :shrug:

But yeah, people are likely to whip these stupid things out all the time for trivial reasons just to show the world they have it. The techo-geek version of idiots who rev their engine at a stoplight.
