Why I won't be getting an iPad, even though I crave one. (But it's okay. There are going to be a lot of tablets coming out this year.)

Dr Meyer also insisted the definition of “anti-Semitic” had now changed, saying: “Formerly an anti-Semite was somebody who hated Jews because they were Jews and had a Jewish soul. But nowadays an anti-Semite is somebody who is hated by Jews.”


  1. I'm not sure I understand the attraction of the iPad... basically, isn't it just a notebook that lacks a protective cover for the screen and a physical keypad, so you can't touchtype?

  2. It's their version of the kindle. I haven't gotten a kindle but people I know who have one love them. Sooner or later we'll get an e-reader, but I'm waiting for the low price point and essentially a universal platform.

  3. Joel, it will have a dockable keyboard, and you can call up a virtual keyboard in order to type on it. For me, the charms are that it's small, light, and you can draw and play music on it.

    DSD, there are a lot of promising things coming later this year.
