Re: Apple expected to unveil 'Jesus' tablet today

I read this article on Yahoo about it and some guy was like, "I don't even care what it is, I'll buy it no matter what the price."

We've had the PC versus Apple debate before, but maaaaaaaan, I didn't know it had gotten to that point. Insane.

Yeah that is insane considering it's rumored to be $800 - $1000 right off the bat. I never understood the need to be an early adopter. I'll just wait for the inevitable price drop with the release of the new and improved version in a year.

Yeah, it's definitely an interesting device. I fall right in the middle since I have to use both PC and Mac each day. Personally, I can't stand the iPod. I hate that you don't have drag and drop functionality. I have a Samsung MP3 player that I pad about $100 less for, have more memory on it and it's WAY more user friendly.

Whatever this new thing is called looks pretty good, but MAN that is almost as much as one of their laptops.

Re: Apple expected to unveil 'Jesus' tablet today

I don't have any desire to buy this thing any time soon. A big reason Apple charges these prices is because of how maniacal their following has become. People are nuts for Mac. Hell, if you can get away with charging what they do, then why not?

I love my iPhone, but those Apple stores are just stupid. $35 for a plastic case?? $20 for a thin piece of plastic film to cover the screen?? LOL. Gimmie a break.

They should give a complimentary "Jesus tablet" to Colt Brennan.

iPad? Really? Sounds like a tampon. I can't really see what's innovative about this thing. Bill Gates was doing this tablet thing 5 years ago.

It's a giant iPhone basically. Looks cool but I'll wait for the price to come down before I bite.

Re: Apple expected to unveil 'Jesus' tablet today

You can't even call it a giant iPhone because there's no 3G...a giant iPod Touch that is smaller than a Netbook, but too big to shove in your back pocket.

EDIT: Of course, as soon as I post that, more info trickles out...

Re: Apple expected to unveil 'Jesus' tablet today

It would definitely be cool for watching movies on a trip, reading magazines, newspapers, etc.

So could you just get the WiFi model and tether it to your iphone?

Re: Apple expected to unveil 'Jesus' tablet today

I was thinking of getting a kindle... might be tempted to go for an "iPad" (horrible name) instead.

First off. That cracked me up...

...and secondly, of course Bill Gates was doing it...

...but doesn't it look sweet now that you are paying 3 times the price?
