It was pretty good with Boxee on it, though, before WD Live came out and destroyed it.

Yeah, I thought I was in a ****ing Wal-Mart or something.

They looked like they couldn't afford to breathe, much less buy an iPad2. Then again, as an ex car salesman, I learned long ago not to trust appearances.

I remember this old farmer came into the dealership on afternoon in overalls and shit-covered boots. No one wanted to wait on him, so I took him.

An hour and a half later, he had bought two custom F-450's and paid cash.

well I'm sure they couldn't afford it based off the story

but that isn't what bothers me

what bothers me is a grown adult older than a teenager (I'm assuming) was CRYING in a store because she couldn't purchase an ipad...

that's just embarrassing...

Dude, it was nowhere close to pretty good.. it was a piece of crap. And didn't you have to hack it to get Boxee on it?

AppleTV was and iTurd and I know a ton of fanbois who bought it and made excuses for it... most of them finally gave up and admitted it was crap in the end.

The story goes that Sam Walton used to walk into various Wal-Mart stores dressed the same way to be sure he was treated well.

I wasn't sickened, so much, but I was doing my best not to outright laugh in her face. I mean, this girl was probably in her late 20's or early 30's. It was embarrassing.

I'm glad I was able to find one, but Christ, it wouldn't have been that big a deal to order one and wait a month.

I'm just saying it was good with Boxee on it, not before that. Yes, you had to hack it to get Boxee on it. Not too terribly difficult, though, considering it was just a USB installer.

maybe not the perfect place for this... but if Google keeps moving in this direction, Android phones/tablets could easily be much better enterprise devices than even blackberry. As a former corporate IT Director, I can't stress enough how badass it would be to have a fleet of phones and tablets that were centrally managed and all using a product that is much much cheaper than anything else. (Google Apps vs Exchange). Google has a ways to go yet in the enterprise space.. but man, this is impressive.

Yeah, they've been making a major push for the Enterprise market lately. I've been tempted to try and migrate our email over. I hate Exchange with a fiery passion.

Tell me about it! I haven't looked at the recent improvements but if they are even close to being able to replace Exchange's functionality I would pull the trigger next time you are ready to get a new version of Exchange. Are you on Exchange 2010 now?

Na, we're still back on 2003. We don't need much. But yeah, next time we're looking to dump some money into upgrading, it's definitely going to be a consideration.

I'm a huge fan of google apps for education. Our district is wasting a shit ton of money on Microsoft Sharepoint for something that could be achieved with minimal cost for free from Google. On top of that, the "open-source" nature of google apps would allow for a much higher level of student interaction with the system. Imagine: all students have their iGoogle homepage set up. Students start developing their own applets for the homepage. Everyone is customizing on their own. People are using reader, shared calendars, and maps in connection with each other. The possibilities would be badass if there was a district move to it. Instead... we're going to be stuck with Sharepoint, and no one is going to know what to do with it.
