Re: Apple expected to unveil 'Jesus' tablet today

tablets are good

tablets without multi-tasking suck

Re: Apple expected to unveil 'Jesus' tablet today

Love mine so far. After using the iPad all weekend going back to the iPhone today is a little disappointing. No killer apps yet from what I've found, though Netflix streaming and ABC's app are both pretty damn good.

I am thinking about getting one and then juts using my lap top for like Microsoft Office stuff. My surfing will be all on the ipad. Does it boot up quick?

It's very fast.

The screen is very nice too, perfect for the web and watching movies/TV.

Isn't a bit of a pain to drag the iPad around vs. the iPhone?

Battery life is impressive too, though I haven't watched a full movie on it yet.

I used it all weekend and still had 40% left this morning before charging it back up.

Re: Apple expected to unveil 'Jesus' tablet today

how about using iphone developed apps that haven't been adjusted for the ipad yet? heard they look like crap when you 2x em, which is to be expected I guess

how about not being able to listen to Pandora and check e-mail at the same time? no true multi-tasking would kill any hope that I had for the thing

future versions should be good

It looks like it would be a bit awkward for a phone. Now I guess I'll guys walking around with theses things strapped to their belts.

I guess I'm just out of the main stream on these things. To me a new toy is a new driver,wake board, fishing pole, power tool, or something like that. I guess I look at computer stuff as work related items even though they are much more. Even though I'm into fishing and boating I find learning how to use the electronics a pain in the ass and not much fun.

I'm planning on using it pretty much only at home. Figure it will be nice for taking on a plane too.
