-=PCTechTalk=- Re: iPad

Well then it's worse than useless.  a Pad computer could be so much 
more.  And Apple blew it, in their rush to bring it to market.  What do 
I want.  A real computer, rather than a simple crippled device.  
Something that big should be able to take on some real computing.  And 
frankly it doesn't nor will it. It's $699  for a $200 device.
