Why on earth are people signing a petition against the iPad? Around 5000 people gave a digital signature to a petition against the iPad, which is petitioning the CEO of Apple to remove digital rights from the contents of the device. What this basically means is that the digital rights allow Apple to block competing products, disable certain features, delete books, delete news, and other functions without permission from the user. This is something that up to 5000 people disagree with, and they made their statement online.
The bottom line is that is potentially nitpicky when you think of all that the iPad has to offer. Do these people have iPad envy? This is a helpful device that you can use to read a book, download a map, check an e-mail, among a number of other functions. I am more than happy to give it a shot, and my only concern is the need for iPad repair parts since the screen seems so delicate. I have done a little bit of research online, and there are already several popular companies able to repair the iPad, which is a load off my shoulders in case anything were to break on me.
