Thread: Apple iPad

  1. #1

    Default Apple iPad




    It's pretty awesome... I think version 2-3 will be unreal...

    I think a Google Android or the reemergence of a M$ Windows 7 version should be just around the corner... once Apple does all of the work creating the market.

    I'm buying one as soon as it comes out. I just spent $500 on a Kindle, but this is going to blow it away. It's only over the past few years that I've become a big Steve Jobs fan, I was always a PC guy. I bought a MacBook pro a couple years ago and I love it.

    How do you like the Kindle? I've been looking at them.

    If you are interested in the Kindle, you might want to take a look at the Nook from Barnes & Noble. A lot more features, a lot more titles available.

    The large Kindle is nice, but the smaller one is not worth it. It's easy to read, and it feels pretty natural as you hold it. Overall it's very good, but it looks like the new iPad is going to offer a lot more for about the same price.

    I got the original Kindle about two years ago and I love it! It's easy to read, and it's like taking an entire bookstore with you wherever you go. You can download a sample of a book for free (about the first 15 or 20 pages) before you buy it. In fairness, though, I haven't compared it to other similar products.

    I heard that Barnes & Noble might be going out of business. If that's true, the Nook may not be a wise purchase.

    Schlottke, is there a monthly cost or anything with the Ipad? It looks really cool.

    In regards to ebooks I have the Sony Reader and love it. It is so much easier to take than regular books when traveling.

    I hope you are wrong on the future of B&N - for multiple reasons. For one, there is something special about browsing the shelves of a bookstore that can't be reproduced on the internet. I can spend hours in a bookstore. Of course, that usually costs $100 or so, but I have my addictions.
    Secondly, I bought Barnes and Noble right after it went public (92 or 93?) at something just over $10 a share, if memory serves. It has split since then, and pays a small but consistant dividend every quarter. Nothing spectacular, but very steady. As I near retirement, steady and consistant are looking better and better to me.
    Thirdly, I just bought a Nook - I really don't want an orphan!
