I am unconvinced by the i-Pad. You can’t use it as laptop, and it is a bigger version of an i-Phone without phone capability. E-readers are cheaper and my lightweight Apple Macbook is already an “entertainment experience” that I walk around with.
Steve Jobs can rely probably on Apple fans to buy thereby stopping it becoming a flop but I think the company should be producing a good Netbook, which, of course, Apple executives sneer at. Maybe the product will be better the second time round: it will have to be able to cope consistently with flash and be able to multi-task.
