I'm really getting sick of all the negativity. On IGN Levi Buchanan (http://wireless.ign.com/articles/107/1079035p1.html) asked if the iPad would be good for gaming, and the people on the message boards are having a fit. If apple said that the iPad was an e-reader would people look at it differently? To get a Kindle DX with the same size screen is only $10 less. I don’t remember people throwing a fit over a $489 e-reader. So what if it is a bigger iPod Touch, I love my IPod Touch. For surfing the web its great, I just wish it had a bigger screen…. Wait thats what the iPad is for. Its not a net book. Its a media consumption device. I think people are looking at it all wrong. Maybe I just drank the cool aid but i don’t see whats the big deal. If you don’t want one don’t buy one. I think it looks to be a great product.
