I know they do, lol. Sad how some people have nothing better to do, lol. It's just like I have to throw in my hatred for Sony and a few other companies, lol, I can't help it, but I won't go off on a rampaging tirade of it either. Oh well.

Hmmmm...

I never owned a laptop. Those squishy keyboards and finger pad thingys you use in place of the mouse drive me crazy.

The closest thing I have ever owned to a portable computer was a Mac SE/30.

I would really like something I can take with me that's smaller than a laptop, yet bigger than a cell phone with it's dinky screen. I'll be keeping an eye on this iPad gizmo.

Giving second thoughts to the iPad... I am still not sure I can justify the cost yet... however if the ebooks work out as well as I think they should, I could go for it. Especially if I get get a book that would have come out in hardback for $10 instead of $30 :)

The Kindle looked annoying when I put my hands on it.

Wife gave me crap about buying 5 new books in two weeks... figure it is easier if they don't take up more physical space :)

Translation: if she can't see the new books, she can't give you crap about 'em.

;) :D

That's exciting to me for two reasons:

* competition
* the porting of Android to a tablet.

It is too small for me but they do say that they'll be bringing out several versions. Perhaps they showed this one to differentiate it from the iPad.

Either way .. I'll be holding onto my bucks for a while to see what devices shake out after Apple's release. Which, I suppose, it exactly the intent of this announcement. ;)

I'd rather have the Dell over the Apple... that is of course, assuming that the screen size becomes equivalent. The Dell makes way more sense.

Dell hasn't made sense since Mikey boy moved out of mommy and daddy's basement.

I think you've been around long enough to know that you don't bump threads that are over a month old .. especially with a useless post that adds nothing to the discussion.

Bad PM! Bad! *newspaper on nose*
