    Good Ho, wait the 3's release with interest :D sure I have a child or two who can fight over the 1 :D

    Josh from talking to my family at a recent 70th Birthday party and the kids playing on th eiPadds the 'silver surfer' generation see them as a very user friendly way of getting on the internet and sending email over a pc which scares them, talking to aunts and uncles who have been terrified of technology they love them as there is no scope to 'cock it all up' :lol:

    who'd have thunk it - well Steve did I guess

    That's what I think they like about them too. :yes: I think the fact that a lot of the 'complicated' stuff is layed out really simply in the settings app- and having it explained rather than just 'OK' or 'Cancel' really helps.

    The visual on/off button seems a lot less 'final' than 'save changes' or similar, too. :yes: Small things like that make it stand out from the crowd. I cannot stand the android tablets in work- too embarrassing when a customer asks me to demo one and something that would take me two seconds on an iPad takes 4/5 clicks and I start automatically tutting at it.
