The iPad has everything that any other computer has...

You mean like USB ports, the ability to create and run your own software, the ability to chose your own OS, the freedom to download software from anywhere you chose, Flash support, the ability to export and import files at will, etc.?

Oh God! Seriously...if you want a tablet that does all that, buy a Windows tablet.

The iPad does exactly what it was designed to do and what it is marketed to do. Fess up and just say that you're pissed off because it doesn't work how YOU think it should work. As far as that goes: tough titties. Buy a device that does what you want it and let the iPad be bought by the people to whom it was marketed.

The fact is that the BBC is known for its objectivity.



NOTE: For the record, I think FOX News is shit and Murdoch should be hung by his balls...but let's not pretend that the BBC is some bastion of fairness and impartiality.
