Down iUnder? Jobs bought Oz? Damn! He is rich.
I dunno that Jobsy bought Oz, per se`, but between he and other US business moguls buying up Oz companies left, right and centre, we don't own much of it anymore. Just about all our major companies are now US owned (with much of the rest divided between the Brits, Japs, Chinese,etc) so we don't have a lot left to call our own.... "Imperialism by Stealth", I think one commentator wrote/called it.
ipurchasing the iPad when it's ireleased down iUnder.
It won't be called that, mate. It'll be called the.....iHop (for the 'roos!)
iPad, iHop, iCrap... whatever, I just won't be buying one. I would never find a need for one. For one; I'm never too far away from my PC, which does everything I need: and two; I'm not out and about often enough to justify the exorbitant cost. Not to mention that the iPad has a rather limited usability/portability.... and by limited I mean it has no proper OS, flash or multi-tasking abilities, meaning it would be somewhat lacking for me as a multi-media appliance. Then it has a limited battery life, also, so that would be a problem if not near a usable power outlet.
Oh yes....whatever you do, don't buy the starkers app...you know what it'll do!
There will be no starkers app for the iPad... nor any other mobile/portable appliance. Your Homeland Security, Britain's MI6 and Oz's ASIO did preliminary testing on the starkerbark app for the iPhone and concluded there was too great a risk of the gas and internal elements combining to create a potentially volatile nuclear explosion... and being the iPad is bigger, there is NO chance of a starkers app for it.
