    what this guy doesn't realize is that apple will add one of these new features to the product every year and sell it at full price.

    Isn't it a bit stupid to have to wait for all features?

    I'll give 8 reasons why people should shut up about the iPad.

    1. Who cares. It's an Apple product. Buy it or don't. If it's truly bad, it'll bomb like Pearl Harbor.
    2. I'm already sick of the iPad jokes. We get it, "Pad" is a bad term for electronics or anything else that isn't related to "women's products". No need to make a million lame jokes about it.
    3. Too much anti-Apple hate bickering. I'm not a fan of Apple, but I don't bash them at every corner. Any new Apple product will be met with "WOW THIS SUCKS".
    4. Gizmodo, you're one to bash electronics. Remember that Gizmodo device not too long ago? I'm sure the iPad will sell 200% more than that piece of junk and have 100% less illegal dealings.
    5. I'm sick of having all these iPad threads popping up.
    6. We already know it's basically coming off as an oversized iPod Touch. No need to point that out.
    7. Apple doesn't care.
    8. See me other 7 reasons.

    Who needs features when they should've just installed OSX on the damn thing?
    Backwards compatible with the iPhone apps? That's okayish, but OSX has a back library of software that could've been utilised.

    Some good points and some are just ridiculous... I would agree with 3 or 4 of these reasons. (No multitasking? Come on!!!)

    Gosh, at this point, I really see no reason at all to buy an iPad.

    I was kind of excited when the rumors were floating around, because I thought it was going to be a real GRAPHICS tablet, that could possibly blow Wacom out of the water with their cruddy Intuos stylus nibs.

    But now that I know that the iPad is really just Apple's DSi XL, I'm very disappointed.

    There was much hype for Apple's "tablet". Many people expected Apple to do something intuitive, and not just a big iPod Touch. It didn't live up to everyone's rumors, and all the hype is turning into flaming.

    In any case, there are many reasons why the iPad fails, and I'm not gonna get it at all (or at least until it proves itself to be a good device with necessary upgrades). Though some die-hard Steve Jobs worshipers on the other-hand...
