In a nutshell, what is the Ipad and why does everyone seem to criticize it?

I have been living in the redwood forest for so long that I cant even keep up Apple's latest technology releases. What is the Ipad? A computer, a phone, another kind of ipod? Why do so many of my friends write about its comedy on their facebook status updates?

It's an iPod Touch with a giant screen. People are criticizing it because there is nothing new about it except the screen size.

Its a tablet, like a tablet pc, but all integrated into one case. These devices have existed long before the ipad. Don't believe me ? Then have a look at the archos 9, toughbook H1, etc. These devices are supposedly for ebook reading, note taking, etc.. but I don't know, that's all stuff you can do on a laptop... More
