TQC, I was sitting in the train today and the light happened to be dim, so I was sitting there with my Kindle trying to tilt it near the light to read. These two banker types get on with their iPads, sit down next to me and one of them goes, "One of the latent advantages of the iPad is that it has the Kindle app *and* comes with a backlight." What was his motivation for saying this, TQC? It amused me in that "did you just really say that?" way. And "lol technology pissing contest." Edit: What would you have said to this guy, if anything? What's your opinion on the iPad in general?
