Bitter, Bitter Little boys
Amusing to read all the bitterness here.
Oh dear, despite the Reg nerdcores usual predictions of doom for Apple hardware, the iPad is a success.
Just like all the wise men here predicting the failure of the iPhone, you are so very wrong again.
And also, as I predicted here in a previous post, the "oh, so superior" saviour pads are once more proven to be vapourware - sad, bitter attempts to steal the limelight from Apple.
The courier mock up video was so fake, but you all so desperately wanted to believe it would work. I said at the time that there was no way a windows product would work that smoothly and look that good. Guess who was right?
And the "slates" that Ballmer announced - dead too. (how embarrassing for him and MS).
Do you see the difference here? Apple announce products, and deliver them, and they work.
These aren't mock-ups, prototypes or fantasy island devices. They are out there now.
Meanwhile, you all wait for your cheap copies from Acer, Dell and whoever and hope that they might come close to the ease of use, stability and functionality (and pray that they aren't too ugly in comparison).
Hilarious how you all so desperately hate the iPhone and iPad but can't seem to stop reading and commenting on articles about them.
Your penis envy is so obvious, it is kinda sad.
(On a side note, also amusing is the whole "Slate" thing. When the rumours went around that Apples new device was going to be called iSlate, suddenly everyone was talking about "slate" this and "slate" that (even Ballmer).
Now it's back to "Pads" again. You know you are on top when even the rumoured name for your device changes the game).
