What Apple lacks in common sense they make up with quality. yeh the first IPhone should've had everything that the Iphone 3GS has but hey people went out and bought a new IPhone every two years.

When Apple releases a Tablet it will be a Giant IPhone running OS X hopefully made like the IPhone out of Steel and Glass making the touch screen head and shoulders above the competition and their plastic.

Apple is behind because I know Sony Vaio has a tablet PC (in some form) and Vaio is basically Apples competitor. Regardless Apple knows how to make a quality product that the public wants. Apple also sets the standard for PC competitors to follow

Just too bad it's Apple and it's not running Windows 7.

Don't get me wrong, but fanboys (like Mac & M$) got really BORING.

The only things I'm looking forward from M$ is SP1 or SP2 for Win7 (a must), Office 2010 (and coming SP1), DirectX 11, and things like that. I careless about macs, they always sucked, I know because I'm from 6502 era and they were better a toaster than a computer, really!

Why do you write the 's' in MS as "$"? It's easier to just write 'MS'. Try it next time, you'll see.

But that's the way all the cool kids from the "6502 era" spell it, dude! :|

Anyway, a tablet is always interesting but I think it doesn't matter much whether it runs on OSX or 7 doesn't make too much of a difference. After all they both support multi-touch and offer the apps you need to use it or will do shortly.

I spent 2-3 minutes just trying to figure out if you meant to say he was dodgy or dog-like (doggedly).

Just remember, whenever britslang confuses a yank God RROD's an xbox. Please... think of the xboxs.

Wait, doggedly is a britslang? I just thought it was a normal word. Personally I didn't detect any British bias: it could be that most of what you call britslang we just call normal words. Without talking to an American all the time, we have no way of knowing what is britslang and what's international.
There are other briticisms in there, the one about talking propper for example. It's our language if you don't get it all steal some more and keep all the letters. Using britslang on forums with US swear filters was a hobby of mine for a while. I wouldn't call "doggedly" slang, dialect or colloquialism. Dogging is slang but I don't imagine that it's a pastime Mr Balmer and his 5 daughters get up to.

I was expecting more on Office2010 and how they're intent to foist the free, gimped, add ridden version on as many new PCs as they can to force market dominance and encourage the upgrade cycle like they did with Win 7 Beta/RC, IE8, & BiNG (LOL@Balmers we bing, bing, bing, binge). Surprised there wasn't a joke about the how the Apple iSlate is late.
