My iPad is mine, I like it, and you can't have it.  I am not interested in
your opinion about my iPad (or any iPad, for that matter) in the least, so
please don't get started.

Haters can hate in silence till their hearts are content, though I doubt
such feelings will lead to contentment.

I wouldn't mind having a reasonably nice Android tablet, especially one
like Google's that I might expect to actually be able to upgrade for more
than a year.  My problems with my Android phone are more to do with the
phone hardware and the screwy relationships between Google, the phone
manufacturer, and the phone service provider.  But I wouldn't want any
tablet specifically for system administration work, at least not with
things as they are now!
