    Now that is an idea...... Now if someone where to say that they use the iPad for passengers, I can see that happening because the passengers are able to focus on it better then the driver. That way you can have a main PC system, then the iPad connects to the main systems HDD for media and or aircard to have internet connectivity. Wouldnt require wires either. So I will say the iPad is awesome if used in conjunction with a Car PC.

    OK, this thread has got too on us.

    How 'bout we go get kicked out of an Applebee's?



    Anyway, one of my buddies does custom car installs and received 4 requests this past week for iPad installs.

    Didn't read most of the thread but after seeing the iPad install on the Tacoma I was really impressed. I'm not sure I would put the 1st generation iPad in though. I would like to see what the second gen has to offer. I made the mistake of buying the 1st generation iPod Touch and still regret it.

    My remarks were mainly sarcastic.

    Many of the posts here have said that competitors to the iPad are better based on features or expandability or operating system function.

    If that is in fact true, then people will figure it out and buy them.

    I don't think it is true, however. But if it is, we'll know in just a year or two as the market demonstrates that this is a product with it's value proposition built around hardware performance and expandability. In effect, if the popularity of
    this class of product is based on what you MIGHT be able to do with it (a tablet running an OS such as Windows), then these devices will be more popular than the iPad.

    But if iPad continues to lead in the same way that iPod has, then something else is at work. It has little to do with what Steve Jobs says or doesn't say and more to do withe whether a combination of a sophisticated yet not terribly groundbreaking piece of hardware with an easy to use operating system equals a new interactive paradigm.

    We'll certainly find out soon enough.

    Well, the impossibility of connecting external HD is making it less attractive to me. It unnecessarily complicate matters.

    Well you can, maybe if you use a NAS device with wireless, but thats costly also.
