I think Apple should be banned from making the iPad. And tablet PCs
generally should be banned.
Think about how kids will grow up having tablets in the house as common items. They will watch TV programmes like Star Trek and see them using the PADD that was ahead of its time, and the kids will think it is just normal! No people, such things are the future! The Star Trek communicator already looks old fashioned, and what is going to be left for kids to think are not normal but futuristic?
Ban them now!
Edit: I’ve been to see Avatar, and the world is set to right again. Clear “glass” pads and lovely 3D visualisers. It will be a year or two before Apple or anyone brings out devices like that. The future is safe.
