It's amazing the buzz Apple gets of late. Well, it seems that way to me. Since I don't invest in Apple, the stock news means little to me. I just want to see Apple continue to innovate. That breeds competition and more innovation.

iCade | iPad Arcade Cabinet Review (Totally Rad Show)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCYw98tPqfI

I watched this back a month or so ago and I forgot to post. I was going to post in the Video Game section, but since this is geared strictly for the iPad, it's found a home here. Anyway, if I ever do get an iPad, I will definitely get the iCade. No doubt about it. Looks really cool and brings back a lot of memories for me in its retro facade. Me likey.

Competition from Microsoft. Surface and Surface Pro

Let's see how this plays out...

They're gonna be catching up to what... 3 years of Ipad penetration. Also still looking like a wannabe.

And remember, one of the key things about the Ipad are the Apps and the App store. If Microsoft can tackle and improve that, then let's talk... maybe.

Yeah, they are too far behind to make an immediate dent. The only option would be to have a very cheap entry price point because right now, if they are both priced the same, the iPad will easily take the trophy based on name recognition alone.

The iPad Is Three Years Old Today – Let's Now Stand In Awe Of How It Has Changed The World



Quote
Three years ago today, on January 27, 2010, Steve Jobs stood on a stage in San Francisco.

First he talked about how Apple invented the modern laptop in 1991 and revolutionized the smartphone with the iPhone in 2007.

Then he asked: "Is there room for a third category of device in the middle? Something that's between a laptop and a smartphone?"

After trashing an existing category of devices – the netbook – Jobs's tone of voice changed. It grew hushed and fervent.

And then he said: "We think we've got something that is. We'd like to show it to you today for the first time. And we call it…the iPad."

The world hasn't been the same since.

Never owned, let alone played with an iPad. I've yet to be changed.

Depends on your needs... And wants. It is liberating for me not have to go up to the 2nd floor to my office. To carry this around just about anywhere is so freeing.

I get the practical use of freedom which is really the only selling point for me. I just haven't really found an ideal use for getting one though because I'm pretty much glued to working from home.

I played with one a little bit.  It was cute.  But honestly, it IS a toy, it's to be enjoyed.  I usually work with my tech, scanning or filing or drawing or that sort of thing.  If I want to watch movies, I have a much better selection on my Laptop, and that screen stays up on its own.

What we need to be sold on, I think, is all the stuff the iPad can do that the regular computer can't.  The iPad is for when you don't have your computer with you, but I think we're all guys who always have their laptops with them... or are capable of restraining by techno-urges while I'm out in public and meant to do things.

I remember the first Comic-Con I went to after the iPad came out and people were using them at their tables to show off their artwork, that was kinda cool, the colours were more vibrant and they could show many more things.  That kind of use, but it'd need a couple dozen more to make it worth my interest.

So papa, how do you like the iPad we got you?

I think you'll get it without the English...

All I got from that is they were talking about how awesome Penny Can is and that he feels a clean as this 'dishwasher' every time he post on Penny Can.
