RIM announced its entry into the tablet computer space on Monday with the introduction of the BlackBerry Playbook. The device, which comes with a 7-inch touchscreen and boasts extensive multimedia capabilities, is expected to be available for purchase in the U.S. in early 2011. At its unveiling, RIM President and Co-CEO Mike Lazaridis intimated that business users would be the PlayBook's target market, but he also went to great lengths to point out specific features of the PlayBook that are not available on the consumer-oriented Apple iPad, the current market leader.

iPad win

iPad wins... even IF they make a 10" Playbook.
Maybe Playbook is more professional and can do a lot more things than the iPad can. But on the other hand, iPad is made by Apple and so 1. They will attract a lot more consumers. 2. They have TONS of developers to make apps. So many developers are live on Apple, such as iFunia, a Mac video converter tools manufacturer, what awesome is they have being a strong link chain in the tablet industry.
The consumer market will stick with the iPad for now and long time in the future...

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
