The iPad: Opinions?
« on: April 02, 2010, 06:24:07 am »
So Apple's iPad comes out tommorow if it isn't out already.

Anybody going to buy this?

To me it seems like the answer to a question I've never wanted to ask.

Grangted I'm not thier target demographic but it seems to me that if the iPad can't use Flash (no Youtube, no Hulu and no online Flashgames) it pretty much useless for anything somebody'd actually want to use it for.

Five bills is a lot for a Kindle with delusions of grandeur.

Call me when it is $200...and then maybe I'll consider considering it, for all the reasons you mentioned.

iPad is so easy to use, even a  child can play/function it.



A second generation iPad is probably your best version to get a hold of...

Before my 81 year old mom passed away, she had a macbook that she barely turned on because the world's simplest laptop was still too confusing for her to understand.  She also had an iPhone that she "could" understand and thrilled her octogenarian pals with her highTech-dexterity.  But alas, as she grew older her vision blurred and her fingers began to tremble. She could no longer hit the right buttons accurately enough to play with her phone.
If she were alive today, I would clear out my bank account to put an iPad in her hands.  At her age everything was magical anyway.  
The iPad would have blown her mind.

Maybe Apple is so successful because they're the first company to acknowledge that even the nerdiest geeks on earth have plain ordinary parents.
A truly untapped market.
