Saw it in the news - there's a big outcry by the people who have them already as they don't pick up wi-fi - they're not strong enough LOL - isn't that the whole point of them? Getting on the internet?

Always be issues with new tech. It's the life of an early adopter I'm afraid.

I won't spoil it for you then. I never rely on Sky or terrestrial TV for any shows. I'd never watch them otherwise.

Yeah I used to be the same, but now most things come on pretty quickly after the US airdate, so I'm happy to wait and get it in HD. Plus, having a 3 year old means we don't get as much time to watch tv anyway, so got a load of stuff in the SKY HD all ready to go, which we slowly get through.

Dark Knight is narrow minded enough to have an unreasonable hatred of certain electronics companies and seems to spend far too long being negative about them in threads about them. Not just restricted to Apple is seems.

Me, I like different products from different companies. They've all made great products somewhere down the line and fortunately I've been in a position to be able to afford a lot of them to actually gain some real experience with them. I also get to play with a lot of cool tech through work.

DK, you really can't see beyond you're own little bubble!!

From every review i've read of it, there are more bad points than good. And the good points certainly does not justify the high cost of the product.

Usual silly post from MC it seems.
I do not have hatred for certain companies, in fact i do own an Apple iPod which i bought about 3 years ago, i only bought it because someone asked if i wanted one and gave me the cash for it, i wouldn't have bought it otherwise though because Apple products are just too overpriced and overhyped.

I don't stick to certain companies though, although i do prefer to stick with companies that constantly produce high quality goods at reasonable prices, such as Sony.

Yes i agree with you that most companies do produce at least one good product somewhere down the line, and most usually make a few bad ones too. But the price to quality ratio needs to be right.

Then I can only assume you are deliberately, or subconsciously highlighting the bad.

I am in no way suggesting there is nothing wrong, or nothing they could do better, but the quoted section of your post is simply not true.


I admit I probably wouldn't have bought one for £500, but as a simple internet device, I don't think there is anything better, and I'm gonna enjoy my prize when it arrives! It's a big iPhone, and thats exactly what I want for surfing the net while watching TV etc

There's no way you're older than 16!

The PS3 was not a reasonable price when it first came, sure it offered a lot but its primary function - to play games - was limited for the first year at least. An example of something being overpriced and overhyped. It became good value and is a very good machine, no doubting it, but it was overpriced for the market and it suffered because of that.

Sony have a chequered recent history when it comes to their technology. They pretty much traded on their name throughout the last decade, the standard had dropped significantly. The only product they had going for them was the Playstation brand. Issues with MP3s and LCDs a lowlight during that period. They lost a shed load when plasma/lcd came out as nobody no longer wanted the CRT tubes they pretty much had a monopoly on. They were in a position of going bust at one point. So Sony highly consistent? Not lately! Capable of greatness? No doubt!!

You're blinkered because you can't see what makes a product great for anyone other than yourself. Every product has pros and cons, take the iPad for example. You just went through the list and focussed on the cons as you didn't think the pros mattered to you. You need to think about why someone may want a particular product, look at it from their point of view, then weigh in with your comments. to simply suggest people buy Apple products because "it's Apple" is immature, clichéd and shows you up as a troll.

Now I don't want an iPad as I can't find a need for one in my life right now. Same would go for any tablet product. If I was in the market for one in the future I would look into another product but that doesn't mean I dismiss the iPad as a load of rubbish and try and turn everyone against. It pretty much fills the same market for tablets/netbooks as the iPhone does in the phone market and I can really see the attraction in that for some people. Not me, but others.

I'm not highlighting the bad points, the people who reviewed it are.
And what does it do that a Laptop can't do? Actually a Laptop is better as it has more features and is usually cheaper.
An iPad is just an enlarged iTouch at an enlarged price.

It's half the size of a laptop, has a mobile operating system which has been designed for touch from the outset so the user interface is the same as the aclaimed iPhone OS.

No one is disagreeing that its a big ipod touch - thats a plus point for me.

I don't think I've called more than one person a troll in the whole time I've been a member here.

DK's original comment was a CLASSIC trolling comment. Pretty much seen on any Apple centred forum or blog.
