Again, why on earth would you want to store everything ON the device? Bob Dole prefers to have all his stuff available on all his devices, wherever Bob Dole happens to be at the moment.

Unless you spend a lot of time in some strange place where there is no 3G/4G/Wi-Fi, there is absolutely zero reason to store data ON the device.

Also, as an Android user, I dont consider Android to be the end all, be all. Its not perfect. Neither is Apple.

Hmm... perhaps Apple IS right for you, after all.

But in all seriousness, Bob Dole is right. Storage ON the device is irrelevant, really. I stream all my movies and music to the device, keep my documents on the cloud (google docs mostly), and use Goodreader for all my other file needs.

Hell, if you want, you can play WoW on an iPad, and it works reasonably well.

Unfortunately we are far from being fully "cloud" capable... in a few years that likely will be the case... but right now if you had a win7 tablet (that wasn't HUGE or clunky)... you could do everything an iPad or Android tablet could do AND you wouldn't need a laptop because it could run "real" programs... Right now ANY tablet is more novelty than utility. Ok, mine isn't but mine is also a pain in the ass to carry around and I wouldn't call it a "true" tablet.

It's going to be interesting to see how things pan out... we have more and more things moving toward the "cloud" which will make tablets as they are NOW.. fully functional... BUT at the same time, tablets are evolving to be more and more powerful with more storage and options which makes them more capable of running "legacy" programs. The big sticking point being that there is only one "real" OS that is tablet capable right now(Ubuntu).. but who knows what the future will bring. It's a funny paradox (well it really isn't a paradox but you get my drift)

You say that now, but I've been doing it pretty well for a while, as limited as it is. Of course, I still need my desktop, but I'm not planning on replacing my desktop with a tablet, like, EVER.

You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but I replaced my Win 7 netbook with my iPad for school and have had zero issues doing so. Your mileage may vary. It works great for me, and it's not a pain in the ass to carry around.

Bob Dole must be confused, then, since he has 3.5GB of free space that he can access from any internet connected device with a browser, his phone, and his iPad.

My 2-yr old Dell was $500 and I can burn/copy CDs/DVDs. I'd like to see an iPad do that. I already mentioned I have no use for a Tablet.

You're old.. it happens..

I am talking about being able to run "real" applications over the "cloud".. it's definitely moving that way but we aren't there yet. I'm not talking about just storage.

I am talking about being able to REPLACE your desktop.. whether you plan on it or not.. we are headed toward being able to do so.. if you choose to.. my point being that we are still a ways off.
