# Optimalised?
Also, why would anyone read a book on a computer screen? Even when I downloaded the preview introduction to Frankie Boyle's book as a PDF I printed it out to read.

Also, why would people want a phone that big?

EDIT: Sorry, I like your picture :D I am just reading the comments from that link that Tribs posted down the board and I really don't get how the Mac fans are actually defending this!

# but I thought
a) you can't read books on it in the UK (US only)

b) it's not a phone

# Sorry, I explained badly.
What I meant to say is why are people saying "it's not even a phone". Why would they want a phone that big?

# Oh ok.
So where can I get a phone that big?

# I think that when people say "it's not even a phone"
their intention is to draw attention to the fact that the iPhone itself does all the same stuff as the iPad AND it's a phone too. Although there are better phones than the iPhone anyway.

# But I dress cool
You're all fat and you wear grey suits.

Also I've never owned or been particularly impressed by anything made by Apple.

But still. Let's roleplay.

# I should do.
I had a TEN HOUR job interview yesterday so I've been mostly sleeping since. Hence little recent music.

# Ten. Zero eight hundred to eighteen hundred.
It was not for the army or that sort of phrasing might have been useful.

# I must say, it does sound like a technical shit curl,
thought the original release of the iphone was shit but this...

and anyone remember the revolutionary laptop u could fit into an envelope but it had no drive or use? They're hitting some pretty feckin poor shots lately IMHO.

*edit* oh and there was some TV thing too wasn't there, seen once n sank without trace...

# I have seen Apple TV advertised on a fair few things
but I know no-one who owns one despite a fair few of my friends owning pretty much every Apple product.

I agree, all of their product launches have pretty much been derided, but at least they served some purpose. I really do not see what purpose at all the iPad serves.

# I disagree with one thing;
the iPhone was not a revolution. At least not in the field of technology - it uses technology that has been available to the general public for five years. It was, however, a revolution in the field of marketing hype.
