“Attn Joe: Should we trust iPad?.”

Dave Winer distrusts Apple. It's hardly newsworthy, but his challenge is laudable. "Is it possible to create an iPad-like platform that has none of the drawbacks of Apple's offerings?" I say no. The coordination, taste, planning, and resources required have thus far proven quite beyond the open-source community's wherewithal. If Winer's white-knight exists, it can only be Google, and let no one doubt, Google has its own agenda that will eventually conflict with the philosophical purity held dearly by him and his ilk. (I wish that weren't the case, but it is.)
