  3. Good job Hung; detailed report on the iPad. Where is your charming co-host? I think this is the bold move from Apple and Steve Jobs. There are a lot of skepticisms about the potential success of the iPad, but Apple has been very sucessful with the iPod and iPhone, so why not create a “net book” competitor with the iPhone look and feel. Good marketing will create the need among the consumers. If Apple has it, you will need it, period. If Apple does not have it, you don’t need it. He he, I am infringing on Jackie’s territory :~)) Personally, I think it’s a nice product and would use it. I could live with a touch-screen keyboard.
