the ipad in my hands…

I just got to play with the Adrian Weckler’s iPad…

For the entire time I had it in my hands, I was thinking “BUYBUYBUY”.

But the second I put it down, I regained my composure and can’t justify it – especially when I carry an iPhone with me everywhere.

And that makes me sad.

    It's going to difficult not to buy it when it's released but I'll bite my buying hand and upgrade to the iPhone 4.0!! Hope it's jailbroken soon after it's release as my 3Gs is jailbroken to f**k and a standard iPhone, even version 4, would annoy the crap out of me!! Jk

    I can't justify the thing either, but fuck it. The more I see of the thing, the more I want to buy it. To do shit like read the New York Times on it and other shit like the Marvel App.

    I don't needs it, I wants it! Tis only money!

    You know Vic, that's how I've justified pretty much all of my other gadgets. I have the cash so I'll spend it on this thing I want. ExceptI usually think of myself using the thing in some (usually unrealistic) way, be it in an airport or sightseeing (two things not compatible with my life). But when it comes to iPad, I can't actually imagine the practical use I would have for it an any way, and it just doesn't have a function for me that the iPhone doesn't do, and do better in a lot of cases.

    Sure, you have your NYTimes and Marvel, but like all apps, the novelty will fade.

    iPhone needs a hardware upgrade though so we'll be watching the webs come summertime.

    Ray, you sound like the voice in the back of my mind. It speaks sense, and normally when I'm in a shop it gets quite loud. But then I block it out and before I know it, I'm half way with a TV in the boot!

    Would be interested to see what a hardware upgrade would do for the iPhone. As for the iPad, I could never see myself lugging the thing around. It's too big and looks like it would break in half at the whiff of a strong fart.

    My inner voice (and my wife) would say you are correct Sir!

    I'll just have to stay away from shops and apple web sites! Come to think of it, the money is probably better put toward a 3DTV. You seen one in action yet?

    sorry i dont get it, the I-PAD i mean. its just an over sized bulky ipod touch. too bulky to carry around, and not as good as a mac. it should have a mac os x operating system, and a bigger hard drive. till then ill stick to my powerbook thanks :)

    This is all fine and dandy, but, you have to ask yourself...

    Will it blend?
