I had been debating getting an iPad but the last line of your post "no multitasking" pretty much just made my decision for me!

I wanted to get it so I could work around the house without being at my computer, but if I can't multitask with it, there's no reason for me to pick one up.

Love the blog Bob!

HI Bob, I've been wondering about this new idea from Apple and was hoping to hear more about it from someone who was in the no. I guess that would be you with all of your credentials that you have. I see that some things that you mentioned that I think would of been better also if they had put them in. The price seems a little steep right now, but maybe it will go down? Thanks so much. JJ

I'm disappointed that the iPad has no camera.

Apple has never been good in Camera even in iPhone with just 2 mega pixels.

I don't know when they are going to improve...
