  • The new iPhone SDK does allow VoIP on 3G networks. What I don't understand is why we can't just tether our existing data plans to the iPad. AT&T;should stop calling their data plans unlimited. I feel like the iPad as it is right now is going to be a flop. But then again, when iPhone 1.0 was debuted back in January 2007, it didn't have all that many features either besides bringing touch screens and multitouch mainstream. As Apple has stated in the past, it's all in the software. But then again, it's also in the hardware. Assuming there aren't going to be any new additions to the iPad, I will not be replacing my netbook with this product. I still browse the web fine and at least have USB ports, and with a netbook, regardless of operating system, I'm not forced to install apps that have been blessed by Apple. Here's hoping the hacking and jailbreaking community will solve most of the shortcomings experienced with the iPad.

  • Think about where the world was in 2000. We had no idea Wi-Fi, Facebook, portable media, and now "cloud computing" would become such a large part of our everyday lives. Smartphones were almost unheard of at the time. A large majority of us were still using floppy disks. The idea that the mouse would be obsolete by the end of this decade is entirely possible. cwa107, while there are certainly problems that have to be addressed like you said, I am banking on the idea that new technologies and products will be introduced in the upcoming years that will either eliminate or have people overlook these problems. Merredith, BumpTop was amazing on my Windows partition, but it's still not usable yet for me on my Mac. I'm still staying on the traditional dock until more features are made.

  • Eytan, I forgot about Backgrounder! My primary use of it was for AIM on 2.x, but seeing as I've been listening to streaming radio recently (iheartradio and Pandora), it's becoming more of a necessity.
