They're trying to get rid of USB, honestly. First, they got shit for 1 USB port on the Air. And secondly, they're working on something called LightPeak which is basically One cord to rule them all. Power, video, usb, etc etc.

Pundits saying it blows the Kindle out of the water and Kindle is out of the 1800s.

It's ridiculous. Not even competing for the same thing. Sure, there's overlap but again:

Long term reading better on LED/LCD or eink?

My bet is eink.

This, exactly. I want a full-featured, flat computer. I want to be able to install firefox or chrome on it. I want to be able to throw a game on it. I don't want some BS limited OS that is locked down so tight that you can't do jack shit on it. I'm sure they'll get jailbroken, but I'm not happy with the way the IpadOS is behind handled. I know there are battery issues, but it's still disappointing. My grant will be written to buy 5 netbooks for my students, not 2 of these.

that would be a cool idea.

And morphius according to Gizmodo they will have adapters for USB and SD

Quote:
The iPad really is a giant iPhone—so much so that if you want to get a laptop-like experience out of it, you'll need adapters to change the typical 30-pin connector into USB, SD, or AC power. In addition to the keyboard attachment, there will also be dongles, attaching to the 30-pin dock connector, that give a USB port and SD card slot. In terms of charging, there's no built-in MagSafe connector or anything, so they'll also be shipping a USB-to-AC cable as an optional extra. Neither release date nor pricing has been revealed on these accessories, but we'll let you know as soon as we have them.

It's a visual media device. I'm still out on the reading part.

Pundits saying the ebook reader itself blows kindle out. Like I've said missing the point, but maybe there's some truth to it.

I would have to try it out before I bought it. Also trying to find some specs on the slate and I don't know if it is locked down or not. It is supposed to run Windows 7 though.

True, it does have a full featured OS on there.
