I don't really get the whole Apple worship. They have designed some interesting pieces of technology and they do seem to have cornered the market on flashy interfaces, but this is just a tablet which has already been around and hasn't been that successful over all.
Other than the fact that you're losing the stylus, that's all it is. That, and an oversized iPhone which, given the choice, I'd take the phone because with that you can actually take with you on the street.
But, I don't get the whole eReader thing either, which is apparently another selling point on this thing. There have been times I would have liked the ability to search the text of a book but I'd rather be able to do that from a full-blown computer because I'm probably interested in doing something productive with it. Maybe I'm just too practical to "get" all this hype behind Apple's products.
