Three things about Apple's iPad

Why I want one: The form factor and the docking station with keyboard.

Why I won't be buying one: I already have an iPhone and, other than the form factor/docking station, I see no gain here because it still makes me buy apps from the app store without providing any other option.

Why I might end up buying one anyway: I suspect it is going to be a huge hit, no matter what I think about Apple selling crippleware. I may want to jump on the bandwagon and produce some applications for it myself and, to do that, I need one in my grubby little paws.

Upcoming: What I think the world really needs and how we can get it.
