[access-uk] Re: Apple unveils iPad tablet device

Hi G,

You are right, it's just so frustrating to see commercial venders like Apple do 
something like this, despite us being a minority market etc and then to have 
individuals and Blindness organisations  (who really should know better) to 
stamp on the idea without even giving it a fair shot. Because something is not 
Windows and because something doesn't work like JFW it is immediately decried 
as bad. News flash - because something doesn't work like the Mac or Unix and 
because Screen Readers don't work like Voice over doesn't make them immediately 
bad - it just makes them different. 

But talking about the IPad, I don't quite see the advantage of having such a 
device am i missing something?
