And now, what you've all been waiting for....

Yes, my review of the iPad.

In a word?  Eh.

It's ok, but I'm hoping in two or three revisions, it will be a useful device.

First, where's the camera?  Second, where's the USB port?  Not clear on how you're supposed to get materials in and out.

Why is everything extra?  I mean, yeah, that's par for the course for Apple, but if you want to sell it as a book reader, make it possible to read books from anywhere.

I know that's not the Apple way, but, well, sigh.  Steve Jobs, you've really underdone yourself this time, buddy.
