    What's hilarious is that Apple and its fanboys think that the iPad is this device that's perfectly designed for human consumption. The reality is that the iPad, itself, is a compromise. There's very little that an iPad does best. It's supposed to be a portable device, yet smartphones are way more portable. It's supposed to be a media device, but watching a movie on a 9.7" screen is a shitty experience compared to watching on a notebook or HDTV. It's supposed to be a book-reader, but it's way more clunky than a real e-book reader. It tries to be a productivity device, but I'd rather stab my eyes with a rusty nail than to have to type something with that horrendous on-screen keyboard and even more horrendous autocorrect feature.
