    That's just you, and around 200,000,000 other people who feel the same way.

    But 200,000,000 cannot synch it with their Windows desktop PCs.

    Actually they can (at least Android devices), but their response would most likely be 'care factor zero'.

    Nothing wrong with that. We all have different needs and it's always a matter of using the right tool at the right time.

    And they don't give a flying flip about that either.

    Very few have spent close to $1000 on an iPad. Some people may simply not agree with you that a touch enabled PC is the better way to go. I think a lot of people are simply past the PC these days. They don't want the hassle, they don't want the maintenance and they don't want the same ole, same ole thing that they have had in the past. They don't need what the PC can offer to them. Many simply prefer the simplicity of other devices and the trendiness that come along with them. You seem to fail to see that people could value these things.

    Windows 7 on the desktop, Windows 8 Surface Pro mobile


    What I would really like to see is Apple putting out a forked version of Android ala Facebook, to make the phones look just like the iPhone, and the tablets look just like the iPad. I mean, its just largely cosmetic changes and simply tying to the Apple ecosystem. That would own, just to see Google's reaction haha.

    I like how you twisted that. You cannot synch but a few. Music, calendar, and pics, but they all need a synch program to do so. Pics you can copy and paste.

    Could you two be twins that were separated at birth?

    Why would you make such statements? You say them boldly as if you expect people to believe you. Did you survey all of them?

    They will care when they find out what MS is up to with synching.

    Didnt have to survey them. If they were so unhappy, they wouldn't have bought so many.
