(Newser) – Adam Frucci is definitely not a fan of the Apple iPad, and he runs down his reasons at Gizmodo. Here's a sampling:

  • No multitasking: "This is a backbreaker. ... I can't have my Twitter app open at the same time as my browser? I can't have AIM open at the same time as my email? Are you kidding me? This alone guarantees that I will not buy this product."

  • No cameras: Not even one facing the back?
  • Keyboard: It's big and ugly, "and unless you're lying on the couch with your knees propping it up, it'll be awkward to use."
  • No Flash: This is a major flaw in something that's supposed to replace laptops. "It will leave huge, gaping holes in websites. I hope you don't care about streaming video!"
