Why do I have the feeling that there are going to be 3 pages of rants on Apple products and Zak Islam, in which some are going to say that they couldn't care less but are still posting it or that they suck? Oh wait, it's Tom's Hardware.

the only thing apple got right was to convince sheep that they are cooler and smarter than the shepherd.
they only realize that apple is a pack of wolves when they've already been eaten alive, then its too late.

Tom's news praise Apple. The standard comments bash Apple. The equilibrium and balance of this site are kept this way :)

Considering they created the finger touch tablet space, they really convinced people by producing a product that millions upon millions of people wanted that had no demand at all before the iPad.

All the other major consumer / computer manufacturers around the world then copied the iPad's concept but threw a different OS (Android, Windows 8, etc).

So if Apple makes a finger touch tablet and companies like Samsung, Google, Microsoft, Asus, Acer, Lenovo all copy them into the market with a similar product, who are the "Sheeps" ?

mmmmm xcept they have not "created" this space you speak of. They merely took the mindless sheep that have been following them , and made them fall in love with a new vanity tool called iTouch .. something .. mostly themselves.

Oh, so they created a mindless product for them then? And then who are the mindless sheep buying the exact same thing but that are Android tablets? Obviously this mindless "product" crosses beyond Apple, just Apple was the first and everyone replicated their product just on a different OS.

Good god man, would you and every other "sheep" hater pls remove whatever is stuck up your a***** and lets get on with life. The android world now provides plenty of competition to Apple and lots of great new tech for us to choose from.

So get your posteriors out of your defensive positions and lets move on with discussion on great tech and implementations and what would make stuff even better. Make your choices and make your purchases of great new tech.

ENOUGH ALREADY!

Don't confuse first to market with a viable market space.

There were tonnes of tablets before, but they all failed and had no traction.

Apple with the iPad created a billion dollar viable finger touch tablet space that dozens have manufacturers have sense entered.

Right, because all those windows XP tablets that didn't sell, that made no positive operating income for Microsoft and no one really cared for REALLY paved the way for the iPad

Everyone with half an understanding of computers since the new millennium knows the tablet space was DEAD until the iPad came.

This is why you see every tom, dick and harry electronics and computer company trying to enter it after Apple's success.

Not saying there aren't other decent alternatives, just reality of product history and economics.
