The iPad is out today, I will not be an early adopter

As most people know judging from the volume of hype, Apple's iPad is out today.  Being a long-time NeXT supporters and now a Mac/iPod/iPhone convert, you might think that I would be receiving an iPad today.  Thankfully for our bank account, I won't be.  It certainly looks cool, and I am sure it will do well and I know I will drop by the Apple store to take a look at it, but there is no way we can justify an additional LCD screen in the house.  Besides, I like to wait until they fix the inevitable bugs in the first generation of any product.

That being said, the inexpensive, bare-bones Kobo eReader looks intriguing.  If only I had the time to read enough books to justify it.
