I doubt it. The tablet market is going to become a very crowded space very shortly with several potential competitors who have been developing their products for much longer than Apple has.
Kind of like the iPod never took off because Archos, Diamond, and Creative were already in the market and developed their products before Apple. Oh, wait...
While the iPad won't fail, it won't enjoy the same long-term success the iPhone has had.
Which argument are we making? That successful Apple products DO or DON'T have stiff competition? Because as we all know, the iPhone is a raging success only because there are no other smartphone offerings on the market. (sarcasm)
I'm no Apple whore - in fact, I kind of really despise that company. I own an iPod, but it's been gathering dust since I found Pandora a year or so ago on my (then) BlackBerry. And I want to smash my friend's MacBook Pro every time I have to use it. But your argument's more than a little thin on corroborating facts.

If you are viewing them you already have downloaded them: they're right there on your computer. You just haven't figured out how to save them to disk.
Actually, you have figured out how to save them to disk; you just may not know where they are.
I don't have to know the absolute minute details of how/why their doing something...
Ok, how about this: proper spelling is a sign of a writer's respect for the reader off his work. Misspellings are jarring to the flow of reading comprehension
Why do you hate me so?
do they realize the cost that might incur to all these non infringing companies
I'm fairly certain that they don't, and I'm also fairly certain that even if they did, that fact would be wholly irrelevant to them.
