iPad – First Impressions – Piece of Shit

Wednesday, 1 December 2010 23:02 by RanjanBanerji

So I just got a brand new iPad.  Luckily I did not have to pay for it.  Lucky?  Why?  Well anything free is always good right?  I suppose but quality should matter too right?  So I get the iPad, charge it, then turn it on, hoping to see all those cool things the Apple commercials claim.  But alas nothing.  Nada.  Apparently I need to buy a computer in order to run this computer.  The iPad is a worthless piece of plastic unless you own a Windows or Apple computer and then you must install iTunes on that computer before you can get the iPad to work.  Why do people call Steve jobs a genius and an innovator?  Seriously?????

Isn’t it interesting that Micorosft is considered evil for supplying IE with Windows but Steve Job’s Hilteresque strategy with the iPhone and iPad is considered cool.  LOL

Hence my statement that I am lucky I did not have to pay for this shit.

More on the iPad:
So as i use the device, I must admit its very well made, I noticed one more weirdness that I find unacceptable.  I went to youtube on the iPad and searched for a song.  The result list I got is not the same as I get on my computer or my droid.  It turns out that certain songs though legally available via youtube, are not available to iPad users. hmmmm  Censorship?  This is a joke right?  And people love this... why?

The Apps man, people love it for the apps. I think you're being way too critical out of the gate. How do you like it now? If you still hate it, you may not be who this device is targeted for then..

I have so much trouble using this iPad that I  am almost sorry that I bought it. Especially when I read about how somebody got one for free. I think that if I had gotten mine for free I might feel different about thins. I guess that I got into this new technology a little to late. Now I am playing catchup. Is there any way to effectively learn the ropes?

In addition to my most recent message,I am so much trouble logging into to some sites because apparently my email address or my user name or password will not be accepted. Somehow I wound up with two email addresses dominguejohnp@gmail.com is one and the other is jpleasent25@ gmail.com and I never know which one to use. In some cases neither one is accepted. I always use 10May1969 as my password andI am told that this does not agree with either of my email addresses. In some cases when it is required to verify my phone number after entering the same phone twice I am told the numbers do not agree. This is beyond my wildest imagination! This message should go along with a message that I sent earlier.
