After that, I started holding laptops exactly like that, making people cringe. True story.
Correlation is not causation. I think you need to perform a few studies to prove that you caused people to cringe.
I got a $100 dock for my ipad. It's an okayish $800 alarm clock now. But since the app can't run with the screen off and such, I have to leave the screen and dock on the whole night. If either go to sleep, the alarm doesn't go off. So I have my regular alarm clock as my "it's REALLY time to get up" set about half an hour after my ipad is due to start my wakeup playlist.
Totally worth the money..
I know exactly what you're saying. I bought a BMW 750li a couple weeks ago. It's sitting in the garage right now. I don't drive it at all but I do hang my clothes to dry on the grab rails. The rails are not that large so I can't hang too many clothes. I just don't understand why doesn't BMW make the rails larger so I hang more clothes and make better use of the car.
We're approaching the point where most people who want them, already have them.
Most people who want one at the current price, already have one. As with other devices, competition, economies of scale, and market saturation will lower the cost. It won't be long before we see an iPad mini with fewer features for a lower price (or an iPad maxi with more features and the current iPad sold at a lower price). As with the iPod and iPhone, this will expand the market. I don't know if Apple can still sell at the current rate but the potential is there.
