Some Say No Thanks to iPad

Apple launched its iPad tablet Wednesday after weeks of buzz, but not everyone is impressed by the new product. The folks at Gizmodo got their hands on one, and have listed 10 things about the iPad that displease them: Among their complaints are that the bezel is big and ugly, there's no camera, the touch keyboard is awkward, the name is stupid, there's no Flash, and it needs a lot of ugly adapters. Especially irksome is the fact that it can't multitask—"If this is supposed to be a replacement for netbooks, how can it possibly not have multitasking?... I can't have my Twitter app open at the same time as my browser? I can't have AIM open at the same time as my email? Are you kidding me? This alone guarantees that I will not buy this product," the blog complains.
