I absolutely do not need an iPad. I've got a computer, multiple laptops, a netbook, an iPhone, a Blackberry, a Kindle. The iPad seems like such a great idea/concept. But the cost. And what can it deliver to me that I don't already get? AFTER the recession, when spending is OK again, maybe iPad will make sense.
In any case. I'm not going to be lining up Saturday at the Apple stores. But I'll be following closely the issues.
David Pogue in the NYT captured too much of the issue.
