EDIT: I'm kind of getting sick of this. Basically all the posts on this thread sum up to this:
Some guy say "Yeah but my grandma can use it !". And gets tremendously upvoted, so ok guys we get the point.
And some other guy says "Yeah ok, but what prevents this slick grandma-friendly platform to be open at the same time", and the guy get less upvoted, like the very point of this Ipad is that it be user friendly, like we hackers don't care at all about openness, denying the very point of this article, wich IS :
"Why can't we have a platform that is BOTH user friendly and slick, and open"
