Apple has also been involved in a marketing deal with colleges to push an iPad agenda. Many colleges now use e-text books and apps in conjunction with the iPad, with a "special" finance rate (usually free to the student)...

the agenda is purposely compatible with Apple products, and is mostly compatible with PC's.

So just going by numbers is not an accurate measure what's going on... I still use my PC for class and I work through the apps.

I do not like the majority of Apple products... (however, the iPod touch makes for a nice MP3 player (but not M4A))...

I lived through the nutroll of the PC development of the late 1970's and early 1980's where there were multiple OS's out there, and it was awful. This is how I view Apple's OS, the one that failed as a "PC" alternative. Yes, Microsoft has some OS issues, but at least it is the industry standard, and everybody is familiar with it.

This trend in iPad style computing reminds me of the early cell phone era, with the monster sized cellphones of yesteryear.

To really make the iPads useful, many have bought an accompanying keyboard, which, really, just turned the iPad into a limited, mini-laptop... So now what's point??? And using the iPad as a camera or a video capturing device makes the user look absolutely ridiculous...

It appears that a product was made without a purpose, and now there are needy applications being created to make it purposeful... which is logically backwards... there should have been a need, then a product created to fulfill the need...

Would you move to a tech hub like San Francisco or Seattle if you were offered a high-paying, career-building job?
Absolutely. I already live in a tech center and I enjoy being where the action is.
No. I live in (or have lived in) a tech-forward city, and I'd rather live elsewhere.
I'd be tempted, but I'm worried about the cost of living.
I doubt it, as I don't like the reputation for decadence in those cities.
I would if I didn't have so many ties where I currently live.
Why bother? With telecommuting you can live and work anywhere.
