They are both good products so what it comes down to is personal preference. Quit worrying about what your neighbor is buying and buy whatever makes you happy.

Well.. Ford is better and always has been. Anybody who buys a Chevy must be a total dumbass....

Word. Although I hear that Chevy is going to be coming out with a super duper car that compares favorably to Ford any decade now.

Just my personal preference.

EDIT - I seem to remember the original iPad starting at $499 just like it is now though.
And that's more than fair; everyone's gotta watch their bank account closer these days, and for something so utterly useless in most practical applications, I understand the motivation for wanting something functional but not necessarily the Mac daddy of the bunch *rimshot sorta*

I mean, I love my iPad 2. I think it's a brilliant little device. I love the user interface, I can handle its shortcomings with certain videos on the web, because ultimately, it is something for me to have on my lap while watching TV or sports that keeps me connected to the world on a bigger screen than my iPhone without frying my testicles like my Macbook.

It seems to me that anything you can 'do' on a tablet, you could do with about 10X more efficiency on even a basic laptop. These are the definition of luxury items. They aren't great for doing extensive typing or spreadsheets, video or audio editing, or photos. They're okay at Skype/FaceTime. Video quality is fine, but I do wish I could watch a video and surf with the audio in the background.

All I'll say with regard to Flash is this: most if not all tablets do not have the proper hardware to run Flash the way your laptop would. Flash on tablets as they exist today slows them down. The technology just isn't there yet. If you get a tablet for the inclusion of Flash, I'm almost certain you're going to spend most of your time browsing with it turned off. So I would simply caution against citing Flash as a deciding factor for the amount of time you'll actually need it.

I haven't had any issues with slowdown on my gtablet with flash. If it were not for the HORRIBLE viewing angle on my gtablet it would be perfect.

Absolutely. I've never really understood the Apple hate that some have (and haven't really met many Android "haters.")

Well, I don't hate Apple. I just hate their prices. The product is really good. I love my ipod touch.

Very cool discovery... I just got Icefilms playing on my iPad.... Also works on iPhone/iPod.

Here's how:

Step 1: Download Buzz player on iPhone or iPod Touch or iPad. It currently cost 3.99 and is well worth it.. On a jailbroken device, this player will play nearly any format.

Step 2: Open Buzz player and tap the "Internet Explorer" icon(funny I know). Type in the address "www.icefilms.info" and find the TV show or Movie you want watch.

Step 3: Once you're at the source page, click on a megaupload source. At the next page that says you do not have the script installed click on the link that says Proceed to "www.megaupload.com/xxx".

Step 4: At megaupload wait for the countdown to reach zero and click the "Regular Download" link. A box will pop up that has two options "Download file" or "Watch File". Click on "Watch File". The movie or tv show will then open and begin downloading while you watch, just as if you were watching them on icefilms in the DIVX web player. If you get an error, click Done and then click the link again in the Buzz player window..

A Premium Megauplaod account eliminates the 45sec wait and also lets you scan and skip.

This gives you thousands of current movies and TV episodes on your iDevice. Let the streaming criticism commence...

That arrogance has created a stigma.

It rubs some people the wrong way. I'm not alone in this around here.

What does this arrogance look like? How is it different from someone touting a different piece of technology that they like?

The Apple "fanboys" around here are hardly pretentious or fanatical with maybe 1 or 2 exceptions.

It rubs you the wrong way that people are proud of their device? Why? Many Apple owners are certainly douchebags, but why should that bother you? That sounds like insecurity. If you're happy with what you use, why should you feel rubbed the wrong way by what someone else uses?
