OK here is my iPad
rant whine. When it comes to Apple and All Things Mac, I am a little like Agent Fox Mulder from the X-Files "“ I want to believe! But the Apple iPad product announcement left me seriously underwhelmed. I was watching Steve present his Magnum Opus and hearing the vacuous sucking sound "“ we waited so long and this is it?! The positive stuff was there too "“ its slick and cool looking -yay. It reminds me of other things I love like my iPhone 3GS "“ yay! It has serious potential "“ yay! That said I just felt like a kid who was looking forward to Christmas all year long only to get a really bitchin pair of socks, So without delay read on for my WTF moments from the iPad presentation.
- No Camera!!! Really Steve? REALLY?!?!
- No Multitasking "“ *checks the calendar* WTF?
- No Flash Support "“ I understand Apple's hard on for Adobe, but the iPad was supposed to offer almost sexual level of gratification for browsing the Web. Not!
- No 720p Resolution – *taps foot* seriously, what's with the 1024×768 rez?
I mean this wasn't exactly a total "mene, mene, tekel upharsin" moment but I found the whole thing lacking. Here's hoping for the version 2.0.
