Bad pun, I know. Don’t hate me for that, but DO look at this article on MacRumors.com about the iPad on Verizon? So if you wanted to refer to the article about “How to Hate the iPad” you might be able to remove some 20+ percent of your reason for hating the iPad if this is in-fact true.
Don’t forget, it may take time for that whole “multi-tasking” thing to work itself out, but you can always jailbreak. 😉
Take a gander at the article and lemme know what you think.
