Pros: Sturdy Design, Quiet, Easy To Setup

Cons: Confusing Controls

Describe Yourself: Casual/ Recreational

Was this a gift?: No

Use this nightly with my baby asleep in the next room and not a peep. The grade is awesome, and the iFit is cool to match up with folks.

Very sturdy design and easy to fold up which gains some space, but still - its a big unit. You'll want room for it.

From Bull to Bear re: GOOG

Random thought - but quick logic game:
  • Interwebs require searching because many sites and info are hard to find
  • Info is hard to find because it can be in 100,000's of locations
  • 100,000's of locations deliver info in almost as many ways
  • Delivery of information can be greatly improved by Apps (see NYT, WSJ, Daily, et al)
  • Apps drive the majority of web browsing on iPad
  • iPad requires less searching than most computers
  • Future computers are going to become more like an iPad
  • Search is going to be less important on future computers
Seems like another 12 months of growth... then time to short.
