    I was thinking about an iPad, but bought a Macbook Air instead. I have decided to take the plunge into Mac computing. Eric

    If you have an HP wireless printer, there is an app that will allow you to print photos from the iPhone to the printer. No reason why it won't work with the ipad.

    perhaps but by design, an iPod Touch and/or iPad is linked to a home computer or laptop and from there is where I would do such things.

    You don't get to brag about switching to Mac when you were already a Linux user!

    The iPhone is actually better than the iPad, but I'm not interested in an iPhone either; I prefer to have a physical keyboard rather than a touchscreen keyboard. I think the Motorola Droid will be my next phone.

    I know some people don't like it because their are some things it can't do. Personally all I would use it for is getting online and jackin around. It'd fill my needs easily. Just a light weight tablet that I could use from the couch or bed to talk to y'all on GT.

    Right now I use my phone prolly 80% of the time I'm on the web. The only problem is not getting some videos to play(adobe flash). We will see what the next couple generations of ipads do and maybe look into getting one then.

    That's what I use my 300 dollar netbook for and it doesn't even say Apple on it.

    enjoy! As we will doing the same with our iPads.

    It's entertaining to watch the Apple bashers having at the iPad, something new to bash, providing links to show us how stupid we are for wanting them and liking them. Somehow it must make them 'feel' better. We Apple folks will never make the switch to PCs.
