3 million idiots paying too much money for an oversized iPod. Apple is like a celebrity not a computer company. Apple has fans those fans by all the crap apple makes and the cycle continues. Apple may as well be the Jonas Brothers

I have no clue what people see in this product. I mean really. It's not even very portable because of its size.

"People are loving iPad as it becomes a part of their daily lives,"

Then these people need to get a better standard of living.

I think people buy this beacuse it just looks cool. Then when they find out what it can't do, they regret it.

yes sorta like every specialized device now a days, save for the cell phone which does every thing but make toast.

is 3 million the amount of fools, or is 3 million the amount purchased from warehouse for stock, i wonder. if its the latter we live in dark time indeed.

Apple uses actual SELLING #'s...not DISTRIBUTED #'s.

It's just another toy really... I don't see what's magical about it, it's too big to carry that around. I think most people just want to "flash" that thing around in public. Seriously, the other day i saw an African American lady (not sexy looking, quite ugly on the contrary) carrying the iPad with headphone. She was pretending to read something on it, but after a minute or two, she just sort of hug it and listen to music. The funny thing was that she had to juggle the headphone wires around the "giant" iPod (not a typo) to get the cord in the proper position.
