apple ipad

  The wait is over; Steve Jobs unvield Apple's latest revolutionary device at the Yurba Buena Center: the iPad. Let's start with the name, the "iPad", which I hate. While this name is growing on me, it was terribly predictable and the rumored "iSlate" was much more thoughtful. However, now, all of their portable devices start with a P, if that was the goal.
  The specs are astonishing though: a 9.7" glass multitouch display, 1.5 pounds, and only half an inch thick. It comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, an accelerometer, and, get this: 3G. The storage options come in 16, 32, and 64 gigabytes, and 10 hours of battery life. Every application has been redesigned especially for the iPad, and the iPad will also have it's own store with apps designed specifically for the device. It also can use any of the 140,000 existing app store apps, including the ones you already have downloaded. Speaking of stores, the iPad also has a book store exclusively for the included iBook app.
  One fault, is the interface. The icons on the iPhone and on the iPad are exactly the same, including the size. There are huge, unnecessary gaps between the apps, which could have easily been fixed by making the icons bigger or allowing a fifth icon per slot.  Also, one ridiculous feature is the "Slide to Unlock". This has no purpose considering that the iPad won't be bumping around in your pocket. It just looks weird on the display.
  I hope that the customization options haven't been altered with either. One thing missing too, is the menu bar at the top of the screen. I sure hope this doesn't mean that apps are quit by exiting them. This would make some tasks impossible. Overall, the iPad looks cool, but I will wait a few years before considering getting one. It just seems like it would very buggy. The price isn't what you would expect from Apple though.

  As you can see, they aren't very outrageous. The prices seem to fit what you get better than other Apple products, which is why I think this will be another home-run for this notoriously innovative company. It is absolutely amazing and has unlimited potential to be even better. What I think Apple could only improve on, has already beaten any other competitor. They now, already dominate the tablet market. Microsoft doesn't even have technology advanced enough to compete, I think it will be a few more years before they catch up. View the video here.
