The new step towards the Apple´s monopoly

As much as I hate to admit it, as much as I hate monopolies it looks like people love them.
So much that they are willing to leave the limited and more open world of Microsoft and go totally in the hands of an even closer world.
The new iPad has everything to be happy with, beautiful design, portability, compactness, sturdiness, ease of use, and lower cost.
Except that you pay and think to be the owner of a revolutionary device and soon you realize you pay to be the slave (moneywise) of Apple.

It’s thinner and lighter than a netbook or laptop but at 680 g (the same weight as some netbooks), it’s still heavier than a Kindle (the larger Kindle weighs 535 g, the smaller 290 g).

The iPad has significant limitations, of course, including no support for multitasking, no physical keyboard, a non-replaceable battery, and non-expandable memory. Unlike netbooks and laptops, the iPad has no Webcam and no USB ports.

Well, it is like buying a pair of glasses that will be useful to read JUST what the glasses producer will allow you.
It is the same story.
You buy a printer and then you have to buy a certain type of ink, you buy a vacuum cleaner and you are bound to the producer for the bags, for the entire life of your vacuum cleaner.
I really hate it...
