What's the point? - Less than one percent of users want to mess about with something that already works. It's like taking a brand new BMW and felling chuffed because you learnt to service it yourself. The days when everyone's PC would constantly be causing problems and getting stuff done took longer and longer are gone. Move on chaps and allow these new tools to enhance your life not take it over. And if you don't like the ecosystem then don't buy it.

Seriously guys, enough with Apple already...
I own a MacBook which I enjoy, but come on guys, you've overdone it, I guess all those Apple hardware in your press room brainwash you silently by broadcasting evil messages to your subconscious...
I am sure that if Intel or AMD only released a product every 2 years you would go nuts when it came out, but this is not the right way to give credit to a company.
You were given an inflated iPod so nothing to write about it and you invent about everything else, like trying to understand a modern art exhibit, you are trying to find the big plan behind it.
There is no big plan it's just a Big Mac iPod, and they are letting you find ways to use it, while the gain the extra cash, for doing nothing.
I know I find Apple products to be over-hyped, restrictive, and over-priced. I know the iPad is missing key features that push it toward worthless. However, with all these articles on Tom's I found myself defending the iPad to total strangers this morning in a coffee shop. I keep repeating, "It just works!" over and over again...
Oh you poor babies. You hate anything Apple and despise the iPad because it won't play Crysis or encode an hour of H264 video in 10 minutes flat. When will you get it? The iPad is a "content delivery device" not a "content creation device".
You must be so upset that reviewers actually like it and the experience of using it. And that Apple is selling them like crazy to everyone, not just Apple "iDrones" or "sheeple". Interesting, the only other time I hear the word "sheeple" is from all those 9/11 conspiracy nuts or fans of Zeitgeist (sp).
No Flash support? Looks like websites are starting to switch to HTML5 for video, even Youtube has done this. You must really hate the fact that developers are actually spending time converting their websites to work with the iPad (HTML5). Or that the iPad may be the catalyst to start a quicker adoption of HTML5 so we can get away from having to rely on 3rd party plugins to view content.
Speaking of which, it's funny how people complain about the iPad being "restrictive". And you're telling me that FORCING me to install a plugin (Flash) so I can go online and view websites isn't being "restrictive"? I thought you guys were about open standards? Hypocrites.
Even Tom's is getting upset at all you haters constantly whining about the amount of iPad content here. If you don't like it, then don't bother reading the threads.
