    I agree. I don't understand the whole "owning every piece of Apple equipment" thing. The iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch all look the same, just different sizes. They all have the same basic setup, and a lot of the same features. The main thing I don't understand, is the iPad. What is so special about it? What does it do differently than the iPhone? What does it do differently than a PC/Mac?

    Anyway, not a fanboy here. I own an iPod Classic (160gb), a Macbook Pro, and a Droid 2 phone. I like both companies.

    Could someone explain what it means to jailbreak a phone? The iPad is great for older people who do not see small print well.

    For those with REALLY bad eyesight, they could always go with HP's TouchSmart 600 series with a 23" display...



    But then, at that age I don't know if their brittle bones could support holding it.

    As a side note, I was at the gym the other day and was walking on the treadmill rehabbing my knee. I'm a big reader and I had a hardback book on the rack in front of me reading. The guy next to me had his iPad on the rack doing whatever. I guess that officially makes me "old school." And unless he locks that up after he's done on the treadmill, I hope it gets stolen. I mean why are you really at the gym? To lose weight/get in shape or show off how "techy" you are?

    /end rant. Sorry!
    should I also go back to using my cassette walkman? Let's go back pre-internet!

    or at least when this was a "laptop"




    and no, I don't have an iPad or Mac.

    Basically, it means to hack the phone and open up a closed system. An iPhone can only download apps from the apple app store. When you jailbreak the iPhone, you can download apps from other places that are not approved by apple but provide more functionality to the phone. As an example, I can make my iPhone a wireless hotspot with no added fee. AT&T doesn't offer this and the new Verizon iPhone does but for an extra fee.

    Another thing that may contribute to small lines is that The Verizon iPhone is also being sold at Verizon stores. All the News reports showed pictures of lines at Apple Stores.

    I don't understand the hostility, you were reading at the gym and the other guy was doing the same thing... but on his iPad. Why would this make you angry??

    I'm an Apple fan. I have a iMac, iPhone, iPod, Airport, AppleTV. I like it because it all sync with each other easily. We have PC's and non-Apple devices as well. I like them as well, but Apple wins for ease of use. I'm pretty tech-savvy, but I don't have a need for extra widgets, or tethering/hotspot connections. All I want right now is sync n' go. I don't want to buy an iPad, I have no need at the moment, but I don't feel hostility towards people that use them.

    I don't look at my friends EVO 4G with scorn and distaste. It's a nice phone.

    used to have a Blackberry Tour for Verizon and I recently switched to AT&T since work is paying for my service and iPhone 4. This phone blows the blackberry away and I am glad I made the switch. It's really helpful that everything on my Macbook pro syncs with my iPhone. Blackberry=Crackberry.

    Funny how only Android users are constantly bashing iPhone and its users... in a predictable manner. Must be the "Napoleon" inferiority complex.
