    Think these pictures sum it up

    Yeah, I agree with the critics. The word is that they might did it purposely like with Iphone. The will have the new and better version in a few months for $500 higher....

      as much as people want windows on a tablet, the atom cpu stinks. it's slow, uses too much power and requires a separate gpu. i'm looking forward to a tegra based android or chrome os tablet. if i need windows, i can rdp onto my server.

        kinda funny rereading this thread now that Apple has already sold over 2million of them....
        HomeSeer 2, HomeSeer 3, Allonis myServer, Amazon Alexa Dots, ELK M1G, ISY 994i, HomeKit, BlueIris, and 6 "4k" Cameras using NVR, and integration between all of these systems. Home Automation since 1980.

          Sure they sold a lot, but Apple still sucks

          My feelings are the same, the build some really cool stuff but leave out all of the things that would make a true geek happy.

          Some interesting tablets still to come this year.... in 5 years this will be a really funny thread to read.

            I was playing with the Weather Underground web weather app and attempting to use a slider. How does one use a slider on a web page? When you side it the app slides. Things like this drive me crazy when using Apple ware.

              I never thought of that. I'm betting based on the element type this could be avoided... I bet some sliders would work, what kind of slider are you trying to use on a webpage? There are so many 3rd party sliders to choose from one of the is bound to work.

                This isn't my page but rather WeatherUnderground's radar web page. It's not just theirs either but all sliders on web pages. It's really annoing when you want to zoom in on Google Maps and a double click isn't recognized and the sliders will not slide. At least on this web page you can choose the + or - to move.

                  I see, that does suck with it's out of your control. They probably want you to use an app for weather, not a webpage.

                    Joe; how are the Mimo TS's working for you? How many VM clients / TS's are you running from one box? Are you using local power via USB hubs? How are responses?

                      When HTC introduced their Touch sliding applications (way before IPhone) I tried them. I guess I still was very used to the touch point and click on my MS Mobile phone and removed the touch sliding applications.

                      I think there will be a "few" used IPads sold after folks find that they are not using them too much. My neighbor won one in a contest about a month ago and its just collecting dust today.
