Agreed, my only worry would be that sometimes companies hire such capable customer return representatives, they can make you feel as if you are giving up life itself, by returning their product...

Have you ever been in an Apple store? I returned a 140 dollar set of ear buds, all I got was "Thank you very much, is there anything else I can help you with?" Big Smile 

I have the iPhone and love it. People are saying all the iPad is is a bigger iPhone. For the price point, that is exactly what I am looking for. If all I can do on this thing is read books, surf the web and watch movies, I would be happy for the price that I am paying. So, bigger version of the iPhone with a faster processor and better graphics? Bring it on.

If it doesn't live up to my expectations? It goes back and my experience with Apple is they won't give me any grief about it.  Like I said, I risk nothing.

I ordered four. One for me, another for my wife and two more for my two sons. Yes, and we love logos. Can't wait to study the Bible on my iPad.

 

Can I get adopted???

Hahaha, only if you're willing to move to Puerto Rico... That was funny, you've made my day. Blessings.

Hey, I lived in Miami for 4 years and had plenty of red beans and rice at my Boricuan friends house (and you know, to eat red beans, and not black in Miami is a huge huge deal!!!) . . . . so, I am almost kin!  Stick out tongue

 

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

No, although I have been tempted to cross over to the "dark side" once, or twice. Big Smile

Thanks, that's good to know.

BTW, Kevin did you realize that the closing parentheses is attached to your url, keeping it form working?

No I had not. I will change it now. Thanks. Did you notice I added a link. I will not be a contributing editor for Notebooks.com starting this coming week.

Tablet form PCs have been available for years - I spent some time trying to use Logos on one a few years ago.  What about the iPad makes it better than these tablet PCs?  When I use Logos now I want one of two things - screen real estate for serious study or the ability to curl up with a book (usually a commentary) and just absorb it.  A tablet form PC does not meet the first need.  And no computer screen allows me to just read - eye fatigue sets in - I dig out my paper copies for such reading.  something like the Kindle would work great.  There is an SDK for the Kindle out now - is Logos working on an app for the Kindle?

For my use, the ipad is much lighter (unless they are wildly wrong with their release specs) making it much easier to use. Second, from all reports it is very fast, which will make it far faster than my TabletPC - (an HP TX2500). And the battery life will be much better than my Tablet PC.

After I use mine I will compare them and post about my experiences either on my website or in one of the two places that I write for.

It does not sound like you are into serious reading on your Tablet or any other computer screen.  The iPad will indeed be lighter than most mainstream tablet pcs - 1.6 lbs vs 3-4 lbs, but still heavier than a Kindle - 10 oz, or 1.2 lb for the Kindle DX (essentially the same size screen as the iPad).

Faster?  I seriously doubt it.  Of course, it will depend on what you are running on it - most Tablet PCs are running Intel Core Duo processors and Windows Vista vs the iPad with an Apple A4 processor and running iPhone OS 3.  And you will not be able to run mainstream applications such as word processing until someone writes a word processor app for the iPhone OS.  If you do nothing but surf the web it will be fast enough.  If you need a versatile portable computer ....  

Apple claims 10 hr battery life, but nobody seems to take that very seriously.  Apple claims similar specs for the battery life of the iPhone, but I know from experience that a couple of hours using it full time (talking, surfing, text) is more like it.

Not true. I read about 4-8 hours a day on a laptop or desktop PC. I read another hour or so on my iphone. I never have eye fatigue. Sometimes get but fatigue sitting.

RandalMHill:

That's just it. I won't be running Windows 7 and the PC version of Logos. I will be running iPhone OS and the Logos iPhone/iPad app. Everyone who has actually used it say that it isntantly pops when you tap an icon to open an app. As for the mainstream apps, who cares. I will not need Word. I have Docs to Go and I will likely get the iWork apps too.

I use my iPhone heavily all day and I always get through a 16 to 18 hour day with juice to spare. If you keep bluetooth running that is a problem.

We'll see. When I get mine April 3 i will post my experiences. If you don't see it here, you will be able to find a link on my site below.

I would say the main difference is the touch interface is built in from the ground up. It's not slapping a different form factor on a mouse and keyboard based operating system. The way you interact with it will be much different.

And for those who say it's just a bigger iPhone/iPod Touch. They are right and wrong. It is a bigger iPhone just like a 50 inch plasma is just a bigger 20 inch TV. Why would you want one over the other, it's still shows the same movies. The mechanics may be the same, but the experience will be something much different.

Man, red beans and rice, black beans and rice! Not only am I going crazy waiting for my iPad, now I'm hungry!

I live in Utah, where the local ethnic food is oatmeal, no milk, no sugar, just oatmeal. Sad

Terry,

Oatmeal porridge is a Scottish national dish. I make it for lunch (most folks have it for breakfast).

Recipe for 3-4 people (Well, two in our house)

 

  • 1 cup Oatmeal (I use Pinhead Oatmeal – the coarsest grind you can get)
  • 4 cups cold water
  • Bring to the boil.
  • Add teaspoon of salt (I use low sodium salt)
  • Stir constantly with a wooden spurtle (spoon will do but hold it upside down so you have the handle in the porridge – seriously a spurtle is just a round-section wooden stick) for 20 minutes.
  • Pour into bowls.
  • Serve with half cream.

 

It'll put hairs on your chest, man!

Every blessing

Alan
