That thing looks like a piece of garbage! Just out, after all this time with Apple and a few lagging rivals, and they come up with a frame and desktop screen like that? Hope they don't make too many of the things.

Smithinjapan, maybe you missed its purpose, this has nothing to do with an iPad, potential users won't care about how it looks.

“It is water-proof, dust-proof and shock-proof.”

Might even be PeaceWarrior's kids'-proof!

If you've ever seen the Toughbooks laptops, you know what it's for.

@smithinjapan, like Olivier wrote, maybe you should pay more attention to the article before you enter into a pro-apple rant. To elaborate for you, I don't believe the iPad is “is water-proof, dust-proof and shock-proof,” can "withstand being dropped from a height of four feet (1.21 meters)," and "has a nine-hour battery life." Looks like garbage? Perhaps, but there seems to be more than meets the eye.
