    Sorry, I had to.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Well technically, due to 4.0 not being available until fall for iPad...

    Also that developer announcement, yikes!
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    There is a pretty good explanation on the Developer announcement

    Why Apple changed Section 3.3.1

    And that is lock out Adobe. Apple's fooling no one.

    Just skimmed the article and what I thought was interesting was how it states that Apple is the leader in the mobile market. I just had a flashback to the 80's when I was in elementary school and remember how Apple was the leader in the desktop market at that time. Every school had a computer lab full of Apple computers and a server (which was crashed more than it ran) running an Apple OS. Less than 5 years later there wasn't an Apple product to be found, everything was replaced by PCs and something called Windows.

    In my opinion, Apple is setting itself up to repeat history. They have the most desired cell phone on the market, but the way they treat their customers, developers and dictate control of their devices will cause other companies to imitate what Apple did at a lower cost and add more value.

    Look at the video of HP's Slate (http://www.hp.com/slate) and comparison to iPad(HP Slate to cost $549, have 1.6GHz Atom Z530, 5 hour battery? -- Engadget). Cheaper, faster, has a camera, Flash support, and has ports. If only we could get something with WebOS on it.

    Hp slate.

    Apple iPad Will Leave HP Slate in the Dust - PCWorld

    Slapping an overlay on windows 7 does not make a tablet os

    Don't forget with that 599, you'll need to add antivirus and antispyware

    There are plenty of excellent free Anti-virus/Anti-spyware offerings available. Actually, Avira consistently wins awards for it's detection rate and it doesn't cost a penny...

    People are buying the iPad for the multitouch experience. All its apps are made for that. Every single one of them. The OS is so lightweight is the reason for its speediness.

    An atom processor running windows 7 isn't speedy. There's hardly anything designed for windows that has multitouch solely in mind. HP would have to customize an entire skin running atop windows 7. But where are the multitouch apps? The speed? The battery life?
