Free iPads for everybody. Ok just me

We had a contest at work and the winner received a free iPad. Guess who won. That's right, it was me. I just downloaded an app for updating my blog from the iPad so this post is really just an excuse to try it out. So far, here are my thoughts on the iPad. It's a very expensive toy. Don't get me wrong, it's super cool, I just don't think it's $500 cool. To quote Apple "A magical and revolutionary product at an unbelievable price." They are correct, I have a really hard time believing that it costs as much as it does. Here are the things I like about it:
1. it's size. For me, it's the perfect blend of big and small. It's large enough to not be annoying to watch movies on, yet thin enough and light enough to fit in the most crowded bag.
2. The touch screen. The screen on this is super sensitive and it supports multitouch for up to 10 fingers, which may not be good enough for this kid http://www.wimp.com/babyfingers/ but for most individuals, it should be just fine.
