“"Most of those on Facebook, whom I am aware of are incapable of making an effort to have secure, long lasting and meaningful friendships, and they have by implication resigned to the fact that they are really social misfits"...
Nice generalization. Some of us travel extensively / live abroad (or have friends that do) and we rely on facebook's easy mechanism for quickly relating our experiences to our networks. Does that make us miserable and lonely, or are you projecting?”
“Funny, but the pundits and "industry professionals" said there was no market for a tablet. Apple launches the iPad, and suddenly the entire industry is scrambling to produce their own "me too" device.
Funny, too, is the speculation that any of these competing devices are suddenly going to push Apple out of the marketplace... you know, like the Zune.
I own an iPad, an HP netbook, a Sony notebook, a Windows desktop, a MacBook Pro and a smartphone - and I use them all for different purposes... after all, you don't see many golfers walking around with one club in their bag. Just because you may not see the need for a tablet, doesn't mean the need doesn't exist.
Competitors will have a hard time replicating the iPad, much less besting it. I'll keep an open mind to see what comes to the market. Posters here should too.”

“OH!!!!....I am _so_ dying to make a joke about "drivers" right now!
If you replace Smartphone with BlackBerry, I have a similar set of clubs and could not agree with you more. Away from my desk, the iPad on remote connect can't replace a netbook but we've used iPads to replace a malfunctioning teleprompter in a pinch and it was the perfect tool. The iPad was a vast improvement over the tablets of the early 2000's unless you need to run Windows-specific applications (which, we do).
I admit to being very interested in getting one of the 10" ViewPads for evaluation. As long as it can be rolled back to XP (another requirement)”

“" The idea is literally to leave men in the dark..." Shame, because I was just looking for my checkbook. I guess that men aren't supposed to be breast cancer aware.”

“That's the take of the author of that article, but none of the women I know are thinking in terms of leaving men in the dark - they're just having fun, and a lot of the men they know are playfully joining in, knowing there's a prank going on but not taking it seriously.”
“You're welcome to stop reading Mr. Cesca's posts. I'm sure he'd prefer it that way, actually. Here's an idea - go back to Red State. I'm sure you'll get along famously with the other low-information ilk that also espouse similar inane talking points.”
“HuffPo headlines, when referencing interviews, are typically taken from the most sensationalist, sleazy, irrelevant bit of out-of-context quote. See any interview with any female celebrity somehow become "____ On Giving Oral Sex".”
