iPad UK Pricing Confirmed; Apple UK Tax Applied 248

Posted by kdawson
from the dig-deep dept.
The iPad will be available in the UK and eight other countries from 28 May 2010; both models will be available for pre-order on 10 May. Reader marcopolo007uk adds a note from iPad-Review.co.uk with pricing: "WiFi Models: 16GB / 32GB / 64GB — £429 / £499 / £599. 3G versions: 16GB / 32GB / 64GB — £529 / £599 / £699. These are a little higher than some had guessed... The Apple Tax stings the UK consumer again." At the current exchange rate, these prices are right around 150% of those offered in the US.

I have tried using the Britannica site a few times in the past, and I just tried again now. It isn't very good, is it? I mean sure maybe it's all accurate, but on Wikipedia I find what I am looking for within a few minutes, mostly within seconds. Once you get there, the pages are relatively easy to read.

Go on, have a look at Britannica.com... Tell me what you think... What do you think most non-geeks will go back to, Wikipedia or Britannica?

Richard_at_work writes "Thirty years ago today, the Big Ear radio telescope recorded a 72 second long signal that perfectly matched the expected signature of a signal that was not of local origin. This became known world wide as the 'Wow!' signal after the comment its discoverer, Dr. Jerry R. Ehman of SETI, scribbled in the margin of the print out, and while it has never been detected since, it has fueled arguments on both sides as to the existence of extraterrestrial life ever since."

if I could save time in a bottle
the first thing that I'd like to do
is to save every day 'til eternity passes away
just to spend them with you
if I could make days last forever
if words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
again I would spend them with you

funny how people open their mouth without thinking/reading/informing themselves

funny how people just "assume" things

funny how people always asume there is a fire when they see smoke ...

as long as u havent actually *seen* a fire, there is NO fire, just the potential of one.

now, me, i like playing devils advocate ...

One good reason why computers can do more work than people is that they never have to stop and answer the phone.
