As a someone that considers anything Apple related as anathema, I have now digitally soiled myself by buying an iPad (version 1).
My excuse: I need it for website testing as I've found that trying to emulate how Safari works on these devices (and iPhone) isn't the same as really using Safari on them. (There must be some weird Safari and OS bugs going on.)
I've also told myself that, maybe, just maybe, my parents will stop being frightened by the internet and use the tablet rather than a netbook. Yeah, fat chance - but if they do then I'll consider it worth allowing the wretched Apple machine into the house.
Now, please excuse me whilst I go and flagellate myself for being such a hypocrite.
