It is confirmed, Apple haters already hate the iPad.

Apple iPad
http://www.apple.com/ipad/

Apple has just revealed their latest creation, the iPad. No it’s not the one from Mad TV sketch.

A few days ago I read a hilarious post from knice.landing (20 things Apple haters already hate about the Apple Tablet); it somewhat rings true. Apple haters already hate the iPad. It’s not about the name.

Well, you don’t have to be an Apple hater to hate the Apple iPad. You could be a dirty unbathed free-software hippie for example.

Here are some reasons why, and they are real complaints taken from comments all over the Internet:

  • It is not open.
  • It is not open source.
  • iTunes App Store sucks.
  • It is locked in to Apple’s proprietary software.
  • It runs Apple’s own processor.
  • It is not as good and open and free as Android.
  • It has a limited/crippled multi-tasking feature.
  • It does not use nVidia Ion chipset.
  • It does not use Intel processor.
  • It does not run Windows 7.
  • Paul Thurrott said the iPad sucks.
  • Rob Enderle said the iPad sucks.
  • Steve Ballmer said the iPad sucks.
  • It has small storage.
  • It does not have OLED screen.
  • It does not have stylus.
  • Steve Jobs is dressed poorly.
  • What about Adobe Flash? Seriously, does it even run Flash? Flash! Ah ah! (queues Queen song).
  • It does not have real keyboard. (What? It’s a “tablet” computer.)
  • It looks like an oversize iPhone.
  • Battery life is only 10 hours.
  • It is tied to iTunes.
  • It does not have 10 Megapixel camera.
  • It is on AT&T 3G. Why can’t it be with (insert company name here).
  • It is not the one Jason Calacanis said he had. (p.s. Jason Calacanis is an attention whore.)
  • It is $499 – that’s too expensive. Greedy Apple!
  • No front facing camera.
  • No camera.
  • Battery is not removable.
  • The name “iPad” sucks.
  • Netbook is much better.
  • It does not have Ogg support.
  • It does not play Windows Media Format files.
  • It does not have Blu-Ray drive.
  • No free software (this and next 3 from Ars Technica)
  • No installing apps from the Web
  • No sharing music or books
  • We can remotely disable your apps & media

    Its great, it lets people know I’m a brand minded clueless douchebag, so I can better pick up other hipster twinks to have gay sex in my trendy Geo Metro I drive because I spent all my money on Designer Jeans and Apple products even though I only work part time at Hot Topic.

    I like apple products and placement of their symbol as it means i can see who has the good apple kit and i do not have to sit with/ be near to poor people.

    Hate touch screens, Even one user it gets dirty. Glass has always attracted human oils from the skin and residue, We were raised to never touch glass surfaces other than drinking glasses and now we touch the IPAD?? dirty !!!

    It’s funny to see this today. All those reasons are pretty dumb. Apple apparently got it right the first time.

    And now with the Third Generation iPad, the LCD display is better than any consumer display anywhere, on anything, of any type. Color, contrast, accuracy, and pixel density are surprisingly the best in consumer display (touching pro studio quality), and no OLED display can come close. (OLED will in time though, but they really need to fix the over color saturation!)
