"Apple ... has unveiled its iPad, an iPod touch like tablet computer that, so far at least, doesn't seem impressive at all."
"It's actually ... can I say this about an Apple product? ... ugly."
"OK, this has to be a joke. He can't really be this excited about this device."
"This stuff is just boring. If Apple wanted this to be a game machine, they should have built hardware controls into that huge bezel."
"I can almost hear Apple's stock price dropping every second this demo goes on."
"Overall, this is a letdown. I'd be surprised to see anyone try to claim otherwise."
You know, for the life of me I can't figure out why anyone would call Paul Thurrott a partisan hack. It's clear that I was 100% right about this silly product. Obviously.
