Well it's been a rumour for slightly longer than a roll of Andrex, but it's
finally dropped. iPad, the fabled Apple tablet.
So it looks really nice, and it's not a bad price either, but... nope sorry. I
don't want a giant iPhone. I don't want the shackles of Apple and their damned
App Store crap, and I don't want to carry something that sounds like a
women's sanitary product. Oh and it's a netbook size device with a 1GB ARM CPU
and it likely won't multitask... GET REAL!
 It uses iPhone OS 3.2 apparently. Although I don't know for sure if the
App Store restriction is in place on the iPad but I'd guess it is as it's
basically a large format iPhone on juice pills.
 Also an assumption based on the OS and the iPhone lineage.
