Not just a iPad

Apple has tried so hard to sue people who produce competitive tablets that to hear that argument is rediculous.

they wanted exclusivity and they got it lol

Ok, i dont know who else on this site is 6 foot 250lb plus here, but I can assure you from just my GIANT sausage sized fingers to my eyes being 12-14 inches taller than your avg person and having to look down at a sharper angle because at a pad/phone on a table, is starting to hurt my upper neck. I have horrible eyes so putting it further away isn't really an option. With my phone, my thumb whilst txting always hits the "X" button when its trying to hit "Enter", I always push 3 buttons as once, and when im at my txt message application on my phone, and i try to hit the "call" button at the top left, it hits the messages button and goes back. Much the same to the "edit/contact" buttons being millimeters away from each other.

I must say that being "larger" with devices getting smaller, the limit is increasingly getting closer to being unusable because of its size limitations due to peoples "PHYSICAL" sizes are affecting the use of the device.

AND i must point out that if we include all walks of life, the avg person is like 5'5", with hands that can fit in jars and with fingers that can accurately hit a pinpoint on a touch screen.... frown.gif
So what about those who cant fit their hands in a gallon bag and need super big buttons?

And i might be just shouting out my butthole here, but its hard for a big guy to use a smallish phone.

I must say i am waiting for this problem to disappear with the Holo-gram Thought-Processed "Force" phone from star wars.....

If George Lucas focused on the mobile market....

Of course it would be difficult to find anyone who could use a tablet for longer than five minutes before getting bored. To be fair to Apple [has someone stolen your ID and password again? Ed] they also tested the users with other tablets it is just that everyone reported it as if it was just the iPad which caused the problems.
hax?

I noticed that too.

So I'm a spokesperson for Apple now? The Anti-Apple force and the Apple defense squad are hilarious

And people really need an article to tell you this??? This is a matter of common sense, and exactly why I advised everyone I know not to get one if they plan on using it in place of a laptop.

It isn't just a matter of viewing angles... you're pressing your fingers against a hard immovable service that doesn't give nor does it have any curves to adjust to your fingers and hands.Think about it... if studies said laptops weren't ergonomic enough by design you think a 10-inch handheld with no tactile controls is going to be an improvement?

No.

They are all singing all dancing, but as soon as the media gives them some bad publicity they sulk.

Just ignore the idiots. Their disdain for hypocrisy and double standards only apply when it is about things they like and dislike.
