To say I 'hate' any piece of tech outside of Acer and Sony laptops is incorrect. They're just pieces of plastic and metal.

What I find irritating is the insistence that Android/RIM/anyone else who's putting a tablet on the market is going to put forth a better product in terms of user-friendliness, functionality, and overall quality than the iPad based on the fact that the non-Apple devices have higher technical specs. Furthermore, why anyone would assume that a first-generation product with a completely unproven operating system would be a better overall product than the second iteration of the product that literally invented this market makes no sense to me. If the hope is that one day, the Xoom or the Galaxy overtake the iPad, fine. But despite the fact that these devices (specifically the Xoom) do specific things better than the iPad by a small margin does not mean that the iPad isn't the better overall device at this point in time.

I'm also puzzled by the argument that just because something is open-sourced, that makes it better. Yes, anyone can make an Android app and put it into the Marketplace. Think that might be related to why Android phones are more vulnerable to malware? Anyone can also make an iPod app. It needs to be up to a certain standard of quality to get into the app store. Now, is this system perfect? Of course not. Is it better than nothing? Hell yes.

You can argue that Apple products are overpriced, relative to the specs they provide. Relative to product quality, customer service/support, etc I'd say you get what you pay for.

Awesome.
