Because it wouldn't be a thread about an apple product without some good old fashioned bitching.

I've thought a few times that more sites should have facebook like social features, then I noticed all of those times was when I was tracking people down, finding peoples addresses, previous online histories and doing other such creepy things and I realised the less sites that have facebook like social features the better.

Well, fair enough... but maybe you should wait until you see what this idea is before you predict disappointment.
That being said, I think the direct brain connection or anything to do with robots is still a ways out.

The point of this thing isn't iPad at all. The point is the thing. People are caught up on the iPad part because that is the means of delivery, and while that aspect is relevant, it's not what this is about.

Well we're not really that far off BCI's being used in synthesizers if you really want that. We've had prosthetic Brain Computer Interfaces on people since the early 90's (the kind that connect directly with the brain, using brain plasticity the brain figures out what the signals being sent are actually saying and adopts their use like a normal effector path). Then the other kind we have which uses brain activity scanning is also about in a consumer format with the emotiv headset (which also has an accurate accelerometer/tilt meter on it too).

We could have brain controlled synthesizers already if we really wanted, it's just not practical.

We already have brain controlled synthesisers, we just use the intermediary 'fingers' adapter to convert from thought to sound.

Man i wanna have a conversation with the guy that designed the feedback loop on those, there seems to be a lot of inconsistency in data rates and integrity on the interface from production lot to production lot.

Exactly, it's just not practical. :)

I use everything from software to hardware keyboards to a (mostly) analog modular, but I remain skeptical of the iPad as a musical tool. I bought one and wound up returning it because it just seems incapable of running anything up to par with my computer sound quality wise, and the multitouch screen didn't exactly 'open new dimensions' to me. YMMV of course.

I feel like a lot of modern digital hardware gets a lot of (undeserved) hype thanks to most people not being computer savvy enough to realize the same s**t has been done for years on the computer end of things (for example, most software amp sims were miles above the POD in quality, with that only even coming into debate again thanks to the pod HD, and the v-piano basically being a 4000+ dollar version of pianoteq a few years too late)
