Ok.

I'm not that big of a gamer. I prefer old school mame stuff, or wii.
 
My brother is a pro gamer though, and I never heard him mention stuff like that, so I though it was rare.

Some Apple fan boys believe Steve Jobs is The Almighty and talk as if AppleCare is a modern†miracle, so I believe the†comparison†still stands.

That I agree with, the worship of Jobs is pretty insane.

That's true. In this last week before the apple event today, people were talking as though steve jobs was an equal mix of Willy Wonka and Jesus Christ.

That always happens, and he'll get a standing ovation when he walks on stage too. This isn't anything new, this was happening back in the days of the Apple Lisa.
Heck watch Pirates of Silicon Valley, they make a joke about how they thought they were making computers, when did he become a religious icon. Heck, even...Time? did an article about the cult of mac, lol.

He turned apple from a weak third party computer maker into the largest digital device maker in the world...
 
 
 
 
That is nothing to sneeze at. Too bad he didn't want to get into politics. Our country wouldn't be saddled with debt if he were running it.
 
Have you ever looked at how much cash apple has?... It is astounding.
 
I bet this will take off, as this is better than a laptop when your sitting around goofing off, plus only $499 (soon to be $399, after a few months) it will sell like crazy.
 
I still think the stock is overpriced though.

I'm surprised you wouldn't want Steve Jobs shot on the spot if he even tried to enter politics. From a longhaired, bearded acid dropping birkenstock wearing hippy artist visonary, to a black turtleneck wearing cult icon.

Wouldn't you be afraid he'd want to make California the capital and give away free cars to the homeless or something?

It's a bigger ipod touch, it's not going to change the world. Speaking of which, if they can sell the new ipad starting at $500, that means they are hosing people who are still paying up to $400 for the itouch.

No webcam built in? What an ordinary tablet. I agree with Shub, this won't change the world, or gaming.

I'd never suggest any product would change the world, the odds of ANY device doing that are immensly slim.

I agree, no camera? Especially no front facing camera for iChat? Really? No point in the first iPad, hopefully 2nd gen is better.

No flash still really aggravates me, it better be in os 4.0

Going back to the e-book reader thread recently, I am truly surprised that apple made a reading device a standard lcd screen. I'm sure it was in the interest of price, but an OLED screen would have been much more interesting, and a more favorable choice, imo.

PopSci had an article this month that a lady is trying to make a better tablet screen. Might be worth looking into.

It's not just a reading device, so making an e-Ink screen would cripple every other feature of the device. Also OLED has disadvantages for the type of device that it is, so an IPS screen like it has suits it better. Especially since apple is big on colour.

This can't even be a negative anymore. They replace it free within a couple weeks.

Yes it shouldn't have happened in the first place, but still Usually when your stuff breaks you have to buy a new one.
Que pasa?

Though I do believe that the 360 is by far the best console out there now, I have to disagree.

The red ring is still a major problem even if it is an easy fix.

Yeah, the red ring is still very inconvenient, but otherwise I feel the 360 is best as well. I still can't stand the triggers on the PS3. Curving them out instead of in? What the heck....
