Interesting stuff re: iPad vs. ChromeOS.

Considering that I've wanted a proper tablet for something like a decade now, it's only natural that I'm excited about the iPad. I keep coming up with things I'd like to be doing with it -- and don't want to lug out that creaky brick of a laptop for.

Thinking about starting a pool - who long before someone gets Chrome running on an iPad...




I'm not certain if the iPad will be a "proper" tablet. I know it's more extensive then the iTouch/iPhone (I have both) but we'll see. With THAT I can understand MobileMe, and hope they have an Enterprise level of support for it...

You just want it to feel Trekkie. You need a tricorder to go with it!!

But I'm not happy about Apple's iPad. It's just the iPod Touch Giga. Or we can call the iPod Touch the iPad Nano. Whatever you want. Regardless, it's mostly a book reader with an iPod touch. And the Touch will have book reading as well, I think. You can't draw with one of those, especially without a pen or stylus! :<

So yeah, not exactly excited for it. Maybe I'm just not getting it. We'll see once we have our demo units here. >.>

Well, I don't want it for drawing. :) I want a portable internet with a decent sized screen.

Of course you want it for drawing. Any artist would love a portable digital art tablet! Stop twisting my words, you want it for art, you know you do.

Okay, joking. But that does make sense. Still, there are other options. Beyond that, you'll have yet another device with the no-tactile-keyboard! Are you willing to go with that?

laurie_robey bought me a clicky keyboard for Christmas! Or was it my birthday? I forget which. Point is, I get my click fix now, or at least, a reasonable approximation. :)
