Just out of curiosity, have you actually tried one? How do you know?
Windows Vista had bugs too, as does Windows 7, and about every other software out there, does that mean that they are not fully ready to come into the hands of consumers? That's not the way software works. :)

I can't say I've noticed any bugs in the 3 weeks I've been using mine.

In the case of Microsoft, the more bugs the better because it's easier to make the next version.

He should have used the word "sell" instead of "make". Bugs make it easier for Microsoft to sell their next version of Windows, because people will buy it in the hope that the bugs from the last version were fixed.

Back to the iPad shall we?

The iPhone is getting the multi-tasking, I assume the iPad is too. That can only be a good thing for many people who were hesitant before due to these certain features.
Yes it is, later, when iPad gets iOS4.

The iPad has now passed Android in total browser usage share :D

By now many of you probably already heard of the $100 tablet that recently went on sale at Kmart. In India, students at the Indian Institute of Technology produced a $35 tablet (runs on Google's Android OS... like the $100 tablet @ Kmart). The project was government funded in an effort to help bring technology to the masses.

It's important to note that the $35 tablet is NOT currently available in the US.

Let the games begin 8-)

Cheap knock-offs


I want the Asus eee Tablet (Article - here)

I'm not a big fan of Android, and Apple is very expensive.
At least this way, I can make apps for my own use without needing approval everytime I want to chance or edit something.

Normally I've carried always a laptop with me, owning an iPad would mean that I've got to carry a second device around that is getting getting near to the size of my laptop,
but this is not looking like laptop,its like pad full touchability
