@Huh Huh, You're making the classic mistake of thinking that just because something's not right for you, it's not right for anyone. To completely rip of Steve Jobs, the desktop is a pickup truck, the iPad is a tiny car. Some people need a pickup truck, because they do certain things, in the IT world say they are compiling code (although, with the iPad you can just SSH to a server and using VIM code just fine on it, but that's besides the point). But most people out there just need the "small car", so browsing or maybe they just need to read/make do changes to MS Office (or equivalent) documents, all of which is so incredibly easy on the iPad. I code across multiple languages for a living, so I need a pickup truck and I'm cool with that, but that doesn't mean I have to force my parents to drive one when all they want to do is surf the net, email and look at pictures of their grand kids. @David Re: stuff about "open". Come on now, we all know Android isn't "open", even the most staunch Google supporters would agree with that. Also, what innovation has Android given us lately? Every Android tablet so far as been much worse than the iPad, can't be updated, has horrible battery life and a low customer satisfaction rating.
