Looks like a giant waste of money to me. Like a pricey netbook.

But dude, It's not the design what should bother you.
They are using the same freaking OS the iPod and iPhone use.
It's just stupid, why can't they at least put a decent computer OS, a less modified version of 10.5 or 10.6.
But this, this is just a joke.

i refer design as inside and outside when it comes to this
inside meaning OS too.

Nuff said.

Apple needs to pull their heads out of their ass and make a product for the consumers instead of something that is new, edgy, and overpriced just to make a quick buck.

Agreed.
If I won one in a competition (that's the only way I'd ever get one) I'd jailbreak it and see what it takes to get Linux (or even Windows!!) on it.
I mean, come on, a "netbook" replacement with no multitasking?
And no support for Flash? Hell, I wouldn't even be able to Facebook properly on the thing.

This.
For all the apps available on the app store, the iPhone/iPod touch becomes mildly useful (just). But for something the size of a small laptop, that's just not good enough.

Apple knows if they keep making ****, people will keep buying it.

They're pretty much unmatched as far as electronics like these tend to be.

I like the idea of a tablet, but I certainly wouldn't buy that. I read someplace (I'll try and dig up the link) that Microsoft and (I think) HP are making tablets too, and there's rumors of a deal where if you get a subscription to content from certain people (contract-subscription, like a cell phone) you get the tablet free. That would be worth looking into, IMO.

Edit: Ok, it's Dell and Intel that are collaborating. link

I got turned off of Apple products when I found out that you had to BUY firmware updates for the iTouch. And it's not like these are optional either, it's "if you want to keep using apps, you're paying $5-10."

I often find it hard to believe how true this is... but why? What makes apple so darned popular? I see the appeal of Macs. They're easy. They work.
But crap like the iPad and iPod I don't get. Why do people like it so much?

-- Edit: 28 Jan 2010, 12:15 --

As much as I don't like the idea of siding with Microsoft, I did see something a while ago that I like A LOT more than the iPad:

Haven't hear anything for ages, may not happen, but THIS would be an awesome use of the tablet idea.

This would be a decent product if they used a Mac OS instead like other people have stated. If they really want to bridge the gap from the smartphone and the Mac they should make the next iphone OS as close as a Mac OS as possible. iWork and some other apps would be nice but if they just throw in Finder and a easier way to get through files they would already have a damn good iPhone OS if it could do that.
