When Apple's iPad debuted to consumers this April, there was a ton of hype, as there is for any launch of a brand new Apple product.

Ladies and gentlemen, don't buy into Steve Jobs' big brother mentality. Instead, support devices from Apple's competitors that facilitate free exchange of information and trust that you're an adult.
Why would you want an iPad with no USB or FireWire? And so many webpages these days utilize Flash, browser games and Youtube are a no go on the iPad.
If you want a tablet PC, do yourself a favour and invest your money on the BlackBerry PlayBook or another device that competes with the iPad.
