The iPad is Just an iFad

Apple iPadI don’t get it. How is this product any better than what I already have?

The Kindle 2 gives you a crisp, paper-quality look and feel when you read a page with a pixel density of 167 ppi, while the iPad has a pixel density of 132 ppi. [see more Kindle advantages at marclafountain.com] So the iPad is not the best ebook reader.

Sure one can run all existing iPhone apps on the iPad, but if I already have an iPhone what do I need an iPad for? Just to see an app running in a tiny block on my iPad? Want to make a phone call? Sadly, iPad doesn’t have an APP for that.

So what about its browser capabilities? Sadly there’s no Flash support in the iPad. So how is that better than my PC?

When the iPod came out, it was a better and more convenient way to buy, download, store, and listen to music.

If it was a better way to buy or read books than the Kindle (it’s not), or a better way way to browse the Internet than a laptop (it’s not), or an easier way to get music than the iPod (it’s not), or better at accessing thousands of apps than the iTouch (it’s not), or connect people with phonecalls than the iPhone (it’s not) then perhaps it would be worthy of the hype.

What is the iPad better at?

Hitler is just as unhappy with the iPad, see the video here.

    “What is the iPad better at?”

    Sucking money from the pockets of thoughtless and really stupid Apple junkies. Note: there IS a class of thoughtFUL and intelligent Apple junkies who usually evaluate things well enough to avoid wasting money on silly things like this.

    For the same money as a nearly useful iPad (64GB with 3G and data plan), one could have a Kindle (or Nook) to BETTER read eBooks and a high-end configured netbook with 3G and a data plan to better do computing functions–or download and read eBooks or whatever the mind/heart desires in the computing world.

    Lovely Daughter commented on th iPad by semi-miming attempting to make an “iPhone” call with this large, cumbersome, bloaded iPhone app thingy… “There’s no dial tone. Oh, what do I do?”

    *feh*

    Apple’s confirmed its place in the 2010 Hall of All Sizzle, No Steak Fame with this one.
