    From the Guardian Tech website. An interesting and anjoyable read with a number of very astute points from 'the self-confessed Apple fanatic on why the launch of the company's new tablet will change everything'.

    Nice article; although I still think it's just an oversized iPod =)

    I'm glad to finally see articles giving it a chance. Instead of the typical bashing for it not having basic laptop features, which it isn't.

    I saw this the other day, Stephen Fry basically hits it right on the park. Admittedly, he's a pretty big Apple fan so he isn't necessarily the target market (He was pretty much sold before it was announced). That said, he's brilliant and has good vision, I just hope other people realize the same basic things he did.

    Mossberg, unsurprisingly, got it right too with his "It's about the softwares, stupid" approach.

    I so glad that i can finally read an article that isn't bashing the ipad. People who bash it are people who are already against apple.

    Very nice article. I think it's just an over-sized iPhone with more ability and there's nothing wrong with it. People are just mad because it's not what they wanted!

    If only they offer trade-in deals for all my Touches and iPhones.

    Another 'beggers can't be choosers' article. The iPad will be a godsend for ipod Touch/ iPhone users with vision problems like my self. It's bigger and faster. I rather hoped for a pricer tablet version of Mac Air. Looks like I may get a Axiotron Modbook after all.

    What really makes me laugh are those that whine and b*tch about the lack of a 16:9 screen....how we suppose to read 8.5x11 paper format on that?

    Since apparently you are too lazy to read the tech specs for the device too, yes it has a microphone and it has always had a microphone.
