iPad WTF?

  

So here it is… The iPad! Ok, I know it’s been out for a few months and it deserved this kind of review before hundreds of thousands of people rushed out to waste their money on an oversized iPod.

All I have to say is… Seriously, WTF? If you are going to charge $700.00 – $800.00 on a device, atleast make it useful. Really, what can you do on an iPad that you can’t do on the iPod touch or even on your iPhone…?

So, you have a bigger screen, big deal!

The iPhone has a purpose it’s a phone with a ton of extra features and so does the iPod, it’s a music player with a whole lot of extras but what exactly is an iPad? It doesn’t even have GPS and even if it did, how much of an idiot would I look like with this thing mounted on my dash? If someone were to mount it on their dash, atleast build the damned thing with a camera on the front of it so they can use it as a rear-view mirror.

Don’t get me wrong, I really like Jobs and his work but in this case I think he and his Corp. dropped the ball.

I’d like to think that if they are going to charge that kind of Money on a toy that has some of the makings of a cool device, they would atleast make it into something useful. Why couldn’t they have a full fledged Leopard or Snow Leopard OS on it? Why does it have to be restricted like the iPhone OS is? If their intention was to make it EXTREMELY user friendly, atleast give both options and control it through user credentials and permission levels…

Anyhow… Enough ranting!

The Black Apple gives the iPad (All Versions) A Big, Wet, Floppy Noodle! (that aint good!)
