No - cut, along with copy & paste will come in version 2.

It took me just a few minutes to set it up on OSX using MacFUSE. Was very simple. I agree it was a bit more complicated on Linux, but if it's packaged correctly and someone makes a nice configuration tool, then it should be simple there too.
I think they missed out the word "Internet"
Internet on cell phones became wildly popular in 2001-2003
I'm pretty sure that by 2001 I was on my 4th cell phone and it had internet. Shitty slow WAP internet, but internet nonetheless.
The RIM of the toilet bowl.
As a 32 year old, I was never taught what lbs are in relation to kilograms or metric tonnes. According to Google, it's about 36 metric tonnes, for anyone who cares.
The iPhone is a very expensive phone
Off-contract, the iPhone 4 is the same price as the Galaxy SII, and the iPhone 4S is not a lot more than the SIII. Granted the iPhone 5 is about GBP 150 more though, but until that was released they were about the same price as Samsung's competition.
I've obviously not been using Windows for a while... When did the start button disappear?
On my handheld device, I'd rather have an OS that was designed to be operated using my fingers or thumbs rather than one that was designed with a mouse and keyboard in mind. While I know that it is theoretically possible to use Windows or OS X on a tablet style device, most of the apps that run on those platforms are not designed to be operated on a small-ish touchscreen.
I imagine the ease of use that iOS provides on these devices would be far superior to OS X or Windows. So on that note, I will be staying away from any tablet style devices running OS X or Windows, and opting for iOS or Android instead.
The iPhone is hardly locked to one carrier. Buy an unlocked one from eBay and put it on whatever carrier you like. Don't all GSM phones work this way?
Really? I'm surprised they added this limitation when the iPhone doesn't have it. If I can buy an iPhone from the shop and start using it instantly, why can't I do that with an iPad?
At 1.5" bigger than the iPhone's screen, and being tied to a mobile carrier, this seems more like a slightly-too-large cell phone and less like a tablet.
As much as I loathe Apple's restrictions, they have the right idea with the iPad. As a device, the entire desktop UI metaphor needs to be rethought.
The iPad has a desktop UI metaphor? I've used my friend's iPad a lot and to me it definitely doesn't appear to have a "desktop" UI. In fact I'd say it's UI is perfectly suited to the device, although it might benefit from multitasking.
Maybe it's related to me already having Chromium installed but there is no 'beta' labelling and no 'google' on the title bar like the Windows version has.
How is installing from a tar.gz considered to be evolved?
