    people using the iPad in public in NYC basically tell everyone around them, "Mug Me, please"

    Why did they let you trade in something free that was promotional for something that costs money? Your story doesn't make sense.

    Well, same goes for showing off any expensive item in public. If you are scared that someone will beat you up for it then... don't.

    You guys serious? People get beat up just for having something expensive? I can understand if you're acting like some posh snob but for no reason at all? Damn, glad i'm not an american.

    Jeez, Canada, you don't get beat up for no reason...they beat you up and then take said expensive items. This is a worldwide phenomenon, it's called theft.

    Bleh, urban made it sound like you'd get robbed anywhere in NYC simply for trig something expensive in public. Personally i've never been sacred to use my iPhone on the subway. I dunno i just thought NYC wasn't all that dangerous after that whole 911 thing and everyone pulling together... I guess 9 years is long enough to fall into old habits.

    iPad is the handheld version of the Hummer. It won't make your penis any bigger kids!

    Seriously guys, HTML5. Flash is going the way of the dinosaur.

    This won't matter in a few years.

    Also, all of those porn sites built for the iphone, will look great on the iPad.

    The only thing missing from De-Ting's chart is "Are you an Idiot" with yes going to "Buy 2" and no going to "Don't Buy an iPad"

    This happens in Canada too. I got my first iPod stolen back when the 20 Gig colors first came out. Had it for a couple days, then stolen!

    SWEET! A few years! Nice, all I have to do is get rid of my Flash player and wait, meanwhile my computer can no longer access porns. Oh porns, I will miss ye, but if HTML 5 is only a few years away I can wait.
