well i like to believe that the "it just works" apple mantra is what will make the ipad successful.
shit i'm still using an old C2D plastic macbook thats over 3 years old. all i did was upgrade ram and a HD and its still working great.
i'm still using my first gen iphone with att and its still going strong. even on edge googlemaps loads up pretty quick and i've used it for all sorts of shit (finding my way around here in NYC, or any other city, games, camera, music, medical apps, and music and videos).
they are both old and beaten up, but i guess the new englander in me likes it that way using shit thats functional and i don't have to even think about operating. the shit just works.
coming back from a trip i just realized where the ipad would work great for me: something light and easy to use to bring around to store pics with and surf the net and even watch a movie.
hearing people hate on apple just kinda goes in one ear and out the other for me... because i'm sure if i buy the ipad it'll just work and keep on working.
i almost understand the hate for apple products/users when someone clearly just buys an iphone/mac for looks and doesn't know even how to use it, but that shit is prevalent even for blackberry users or dudes who drop $3,000.00 on a DSLR only to shoot with intelligent auto 99% of the time.

I feel like I've been pretty good at not "insulting everyone with an Apple product" as Haganah states. In fact, it seems to me that I'm frequently intentionally baited in threads like this, and if you don't like my response - don't start an argument with me about it.
