Dec 7th 2009 4:50PM This thread is hilarious. It's like a combination highlight reel of past discussions about the Macbook Air and iPhone, and look forward at what people will say when Apple releases a $1500 tablet. Right before we all go out and buy it anyway. As for this thing, it's not a terrible idea, it may just be a little ahead of its time. You cannot buy a 12" capacitive touchscreen on any other currently-shipping device for anywhere near $500, if you can even find one. Hell, show me a netbook with a touchscreen of any kind for under $500.
Nov 16th 2009 6:33PM Yeah...I'm never using a laptop without a backlit keyboard again. Apple seems to have figured it out, everyone else needs to get with the f-ing program.
Oct 22nd 2009 4:41PM Jesus that thing is ugly. It looks like an all-in-one from the early 2000s. Maybe a little thicker.
Sep 30th 2009 2:43PM $4.99 a movie? All I can say to that is LOL good luck.
Sep 11th 2009 3:33PM Yeah...I don't think 7" is out of date. I think anything larger than a 10 is a laptop, not a netbook, regardless of price. I still want a 7-8" because they're, you know, compact. I have a full size laptop for other stuff.
Aug 10th 2009 10:27AM What it means going forward is that I'm going to continue to not buy Sony computers, because this is the dozenth time I've seen some weird bug like this from them.
May 4th 2009 8:54PM Why are we even discussing this like app approval is ok? It's the worst possible outcome of a monopoly position. People have been screaming about Microsoft for years, despite their hardly exhibiting any monopolistic behavior. Now Apple is going ahead and telling us what we can and can't use on our personal devices, and everyone is super ok with it? I think not.
This is what the future of computing will be, and Microsoft will have nothing to do with it.
Feb 8th 2009 3:18PM Ugh...bezel. And why the fballs does it still have that stupid effing keyboard?
I want to love you, Kindle, I really do. But jesus you're ugly.
Also I'm not that interested until the price comes down and I can pirate books as easily as music.
Jan 2nd 2009 1:10PM It's the Audigy 3 Platinum.
Dec 17th 2008 11:21AM I saw this in a local store for around $50, and at that price it's actually pretty cool. Sure I've got a regular GPS, and a car GPS, but I think this fills an important niche. Not everyone needs graphic, topo maps, and waypoints. I think it opens up the market to people who wouldn't normally use a GPS, and if it saves even one life, it's an awesome product.
