What a fool would do...

Galen Gruman at InfoWorld writes that Only a fool would pre-order an iPad. He opens with the obvious:
Why blow $500 to $830 on a device that may not be what you expect? Just wait a mere three weeks to see for sure what it actually does and what surprises, good and bad, Apple has packed into the iPad.
He then goes on to point out that owners of the original iPod Touch might have gotten the short end of the stick because the Touch was missing lots of features. Which, when you think about it, is actually an argument for not only waiting for the iPad to be in stores, but to wait for version 2 as well.

And you know what? He's absolutely right. You should wait until it's in stores. In fact, you should wait for version 2. It will be better. Waiting is the smart thing to do.

And you know what? I don't care. I have no regrets about pre-ordering an iPad.

I never said I was smart.
