RE: ipod touch/ ipad
Have you actually used an iPad? - Seriously all that you say is correct however when you actually pick one up and start to use it...

Yes it's expensive - but so is my Hi-Fi.

A Retina Display would be great but I'll live with that shortcoming.

RE: ipod touch/ ipad
Multi task is coming by xmas.
It does not support Adobe flash.
Keyboard is fine.

It does not replace a laptop.

With Chorus DS HD it provides the best control option for a DS !

The ipad is one of the best devices I have bought and besides controlling my DS systems it is brilliant for surfing the net. Instant 'on' makes up for its shortcomings.

So does it Multi task yet ?
Does it support Adobe flash on websites ?
No USB without an adaptor ?
Poor virtual keyboard for typing ?
Over priced..... I could live with the other reported short comings..

So it can't replace a laptop, which was an idea to me to help justify the price..... So as a control point for a DS it's dam expensive, surely the phone/pod is better option ? ..... or a little 10.1" net book ?

Main: Exakt Klimax 350, Oppo 105.

Second: Majik DSi connected to 109's in the kitchen, and Akurate 212's in the office, both driven by Tundra Stereo 1.2.

RE: ipod touch/ ipad
Had a demo/play in a high street electrical store last weekend...... The "kid" in the store wasn't very knowledgeable, they kept dropping the net connection and two wouldn't work because the power lead/plug was dodgy.
Next time I'll hassle the Apple store Wink

Does it support BBC iPlayer ? ..... and Skype ?

Well, I'm watching Land of the Tiger on the iPlayer on my iPhone 3GS as I type so I would imagine the answer is probably yes Smile

No idea about Skype -- never tried it, but you've got me curious now Big Grin

I believe Skype supported but only on wifi (not 3G)...
