I know it’s an opinion piece but this article, reposted on Macworld, is really ridiculous.
Buying a new kind of product sight unseen is foolish. Especially given how mysterious Apple has been on what the iPad can do and what restrictions on capabilities and media access it will place on users and content providers.
Really? Has Apple been mysterious? I was pretty clear on what the iPad can do and what it can’t do based on the presentation from Steve Jobs when he introduced the device. It’s based on iPhone OS and has, currently, the same limitations as iPhone OS. There are changes to account for the new screen and there are new applications but it’s a Wifi and/or 3G larger iPod Touch. What is so mysterious about it? And what restrictions and media access is Galen Gruman referring to that we don’t already know about?
I really wish people would just get over the fact that Apple makes good products. If you don’t like them don’t buy them but stop faulting others for buying them.
