I must be old because I still don't see the point of an iPad, or Tablet. Of course I also don't use social networking sites, or play iphone/ipad games.

I have an iphone, and an android phone, so it's not like I don't like gadgets, but if I want to browse the web I'll do it on my pc, or laptop, and if I want to play a game, I'll play a PC game.

I still think the largest reason people get these, or any tablet is to waste time/show off in public, **that means you guy on subway reading the newspaper on your $600 tablet**.

One of my favorite shows ever.

Partially true^... they don't know and  are educated by the commercials on Television...! Without programming, there is no billion dollar deal to push iPad2 down your throats. Most people don't need an iPad... they wanted one. (And that is the sad part)

I would be like, "dear lord this thing is a POS"

However thats only because I don't care for apple, not because of the products just because almost %80 of the issues I had at AT&T were apple related.

Lol I swear the intelligence of this place is dropping by the day. I don't understand why someone is a fanboy for enjoying something which is, in many ways, a superior product to the competition at this time.
