it's crap! too long, too dull and sets nothing up for the game - all style and no substance - and the last game was shite - grand theft auto and call of duty set the levels these days and tomb raider now seems very 1990's.......

I've had my vega for 3 months and love it...and I'm a loyal mac user. The ipad is more fluent but way too pricey and wall gardened.
Just spend £250, mod it in 5 minutes and enjoy. Even reg readers can manage that.
Marketplace is decent, there's loads of online support and it handles flash great. Just don't analyse it too much...i really love it.
"You will only upload, post, submit or otherwise transmit data and/or files: (i) that you have the lawful right to use, copy, distribute, transmit, or display; or (ii) that does not infringe the intellectual property rights or violate the privacy rights of any third party"
"Dropbox has adopted and implemented a policy that permits the deletion of files that violate this policy"
so how do they know if you hold any files that violate their policy without looking?
i'm a long time mac user but jobs is wrong on this one - a bit like cd burners and blu-ray on macs - apple should have phased out flash slowly, not just dumped it.
i've bought an advent vega tablet, it runs flash nicely and more importantly, it runs when i choose to run it in the browser - great, so i can choose to run flash or not.
this makes the ipad look daft, and overpriced.
apple could live to regret this decision. hopefully once jobs has gone, they will think again about flash and blu-ray......
a speculating mole possibly has some information about a higher res screen but you are "cautiously optimistic. The evidence for such a resolution hike is at best circumstantial"
make a sentence out of the following words*
"we have no idea about the next ipad but like to put its name in articles because its the only product that people are actually interested in, and mentioning apple always causes a bit of a ruck"
*see, i've done it for you.
lovefilm was poor.
scratched discs, discs not turning up, wrong priority of films, next day delivery not happening and then discs not getting back to them.....ok, the royal mail has to take the blame on some but we were less than impressed......downloading from them may be a better option...anythings better than being tied to itunes.
that's the silly ipad price - go and spend £249 on an advent vega running android, it's bloody great.
tablets are going to overtake but not replace netbooks, it's just 2 different markets and 2 different devices - there are things that the tablet will never do, but they are huge fun! go try...
spend £249 on an advent vega, mod it to get the full android experience with marketplace and then sit on the sofa and enjoy - i'm loving mine and using my mac and ipod touch much less.
the ipad is great to use but, as others have said, it lacks more than just flash and a decent price point...
apple now sell their products in tesco and argos, they advertise on itv! - they didn't 10 years ago - you still think they don't want the mass market?
of course they do, they just want to offer nice looking products and charge a premium price.
i've been a mac user for years but am now enjoying an advent vega tablet running android for £249 and i can expand it and put on what i want - the ipad is simply overpriced, as are all mac models. £599 for a mac mini is a fooking disgrace.
apple are simply up to their old tricks again and will lose out in the long run to cheaper products that do an okay job....
