Dell Streak 7 and Streak 10
Apple won't be the only one with a trendy tablet, soon
With the iPad being a
, many competitors are looking to rush tablet designs to the market. Microsoft has their much talked about
Courier journal-style design
Amazon and Google
are also reportedly cooking up tablet devices as well.
One set of tablets that have flown mostly under the radar are Dell's upcoming designs. Dell, currently the third largest computer manufacturer in the U.S., behind HP and Lenovo, is looking to get back on the ball with a trio of tablets.
from Dell reveal the Streak tablets to be very sleek and very iPad-like.
The tablets are reportedly called the Streak series. A 5-in. Streak 5 (formerly known as the Mini 5) will reportedly launch with
Dell's Aero smart phone
on the AT&T network in June. The Streak series, like the Aero, will be powered by Google's Android smart phone and MID operating system.
The 7-in. Streak 7 will arrive late this year and the 10-in. Streak 10 will arrive in "early 2011."
The striking visual similarities between the Streak series and the iPad are hard to miss (the Streak series does have 3 buttons on the front frame face, rather than just one). That surely gives Apple's legal team cause to salivate, but probably makes Apple's sales team a bit unnerved. After all, by the looks of it Apple isn't going to be the only one with a sleek tablet design for very long. Let's just hope Dell takes time to quality test the Streak series thoroughly so it can avoid the
heat and Wi-Fi issues
that have plagued the iPad.

I have heard of the study quoted in that article before. How our society got that way is an unknown to me (I'm sure someone has an opinion) but that is why I, a highly opinionated Political Science major, rarely argue with people anymore.

Society got that way because everyone thinks of themselves as their own little god who has a strong influence on others with their writing, because they are strongly influenced by what they read.
It is basically ingrained in the recent generations by their formal schooling to memorize, trust, and follow what they read... then at some point they feel they are equally competent to produce text but fail to see that unlike the typical distribution of information, their biased opinions aren't going to be so rapidly accepted... so others post in kind with rebuttals as a countermeasure.
It's just evidence of illogical thinking and madness that has always been present in society. We merely notice it more now that every Tom, Dick, and Harry can post their thoughts on the internet.
