Key Change, Same Tune...
Most of the people on this site are not the target audience for this device. This device is the personification of what makes apple great. It's a computer for people who don't want a computer, and don't want to be left behind by being a person without one. This thing toasterizes computers for everyone completely (there's no moving parts!).
But i'm not reneging my position. For a person like me this is a really lame device because i have everything that this device is in something else, so I was correct in calling it what I did, lame. An iPod G4 to a an iPod G3 user is cool, but a iPod to a new iPod user is life changing. I thought about what my mom's next computer should be and my dial mysteriously stopped here.
I can either get my mom a new PC that will cause crazy issues all day long and confuse and upset her and my phone will ring like clockwork every 3 moths when it needs reformatting, or spend an extra $500 bucks and never get a call again. In fact this is even better than a macbook or mac desktop because it'll save her from all the other confusing mumbo jumbo of having a computer that she never uses any friggin way. Her Internet bill will drop to $30 a month (that's 1/2 what Adelphia's charging people) and she'll never call me up to tell anything besides family dish.
This thing has a chance, and as much as I hate to admit it this time and (e:Jim) is prolly right.
i'm not an apple fan boy. I use their stuff when I love it, and when I love it I love it so hard it breaks my heart not to have it. As soon as a (e:Matthew)'s sister or (e:Enknot)'s mom gets one; LOVE. Pure nasty sloppy wet flicking noise making wake the neighbors PDA style love.
Now if they could only set it up so that you never need to use your computer to use it it'll be a show stopper. On top of it all the reason why they're putting out this uber lame version is because their easing you into the more complicated yet still quite simple version of the device that will take you past the last mile and compete with Google head on. In fact this device is the only thing that I can see that might have a chance right now.
When it has front and back camera and blue tooth (if it doesn't already) for head set you won't need the phone company to be a phone company anymore. Hell, Apple wan't going to take Google on first or without an army of stubborn paying customers behind them.
Yeah my mom's due for a new compy soon, and depending on how things go in the next few months if I have anything to do with getting her one, it'll be one of these things. (If only so I can bash it first hand *snort*)
Funny how close they were. I guess the newton finally lives.

I have a theory.
It's that extremely attractive people typically attract the most shallow of individuals, while their deeper more aptly suited suitors lurk in dark corners waiting to for a chance they'll never take, and everyone looses.
The marginally attractive people get to date the most since they're not so fugly that they don't have confidence and/or folks won't revile touching them.
And the supa homely get to have really weird sex everytime they have sex, cause really why would someone have sex with the fugly person unless they wanted to do something crazy that no one else would do.
I think that super hawt people are sometimes not as sweet as we imagine they are in our heads. Sweet ass, no shake. Huge member, no endurance. Nice face, bad breath. Happens. No one ever thinks of it when they see this kinda stuff:
but she really needs a mint.
Worse, since hawt people are soo hawt, they're typically kinda dull. They've never had to try. Everything kidna falls into their lap. Which is where the dumb blond things comes from. Makes sense though. Why bother knowing anthing else if everything you want can be aquired by being ...you. Leaves those smart hawt people out in the cold.
Lastly, interesting hawt people have a love hate relationship with their hawtness. Only brazen idots and other dumb hawt people ever wanna be with them. It's sad, but often true. I'm guilty. I can't approach a supa hawt lady seriously. Supa smart ones scare me off too, but I want them. i want them all.
Ok, ok ok ok ok I'm ranting. I'm gonna stop now. Tell me what you think. Ever pass on a hawt person that you had a chance with? Ever get ignored by a timid person cause your milkshake brought too many boys to the yard? Ooh, better yet. Do this and report. Go "jokingly" ask a person who's too hawt for you out and see what happens. I'll do it to and report back, this could be fun.
