These iPad reviews and App Store links are starting to get hazardous to my (financial) health. I mean, I really don’t need one. I have 2 Nexus One phones in my pocket, a Kindle DX, and I rarely go anywhere without a Macbook Pro. The biggest thing that I’d use a small tablet for would be to-do/calendar management, and I don’t think the iPad is particularly good at that–it’s not really possible to integrate information from multiple silos (Calendar, To-Do, Email, etc) given the iPhone/iPad architecture. My general opinion hasn’t changed much since the last time I wrote about it.
I’m not convinced that it matters though. Much like Stross, I have a low saving throw versus Shiny!
