I’ve had several opportunities to play with the iPad and like millions of others, I love it. But I’m not going to buy one for the main reason I don’t buy Apple. That’s because it’s Jobs’ way or the highway.
Specifically with the iPad, it does not have a USB port, meaning I can’t connect it to my Blackberry which doubles as a broadband modem. I pay Verizon $30 a month for that service and the Blackberry works with all my PC notebooks and netbooks.
