I'm definitely glad to have my Touchpad and looking forward to some of the updates that should help it fulfill my mission of proving it's a better "adult" tablet than the iPad (document editing and kindle app are two supposed near-term improvements I really want). I say "adult" because the sheer number of educational apps for toddlers on the iPad is quite impressive. As I've posted on some early blog-reviews of the Touchpad, my wife and I would use the iPads at night when the kids are sleeping, but by and large I consider them locked down educational toys/tools (the way we use them) w/ a large app selection.
Now for the OT part of my post (that I couldn't put in OT due to my low post count). I did get to thinking that I'm often an "underdog" supporter when it comes to purchases, and I'm curious if anybody else is. Examples include:
* One of our cars is a Saab (good car but underdog)
* A previous car was a Mazda Millenia (assuming most of you have never heard of it).
* Our DSLR is an Olympus (good camera but an underdog)
* My MP3 player used to be a Zune (nice MP3 player but an underdog)
* My laptop was from PowerNotebooks (a quasi mom & pop assembler of laptops)
* Got the Pre Plus (Verizon) for my wife when it was released (good phone, but I think we'd agree an underdog)
The list goes on and on, but you get the picture. So I'm curious if I'm the only one or if anybody else here shares this trait ;-)
