Well I think she'd have preferred to hear you say, "Darling wife the only gift you need give me for Christmas is yourself. Now go put on that tarty lingerie I gave you for our anniversary." ROFLMAO

Our ability to use the tablet so productively is attributable in large part to a handful of active BlackBerry PlayBook application developers. With the proper strategy Research In Motion could transform the current tablet into the ultimate portable office suitable for use in the office and away from the desk; they have the pieces already but not the necessary strategy to bring everything together. For example, a rapid charging dock with built-in ports HDMI, Bluetooth and USB to create a drop-in solution in many workplaces and academic institutions. As I type this message my desk has an HDTV monitor, BlackBerry smartphone in charging dock, BlackBerry PlayBook in charging dock, Bluetooth keyboard and mouse (for use with my notebook computer but could be used with the tablet if the rapid charging dock accepted USB Bluetooth dongles), dual WiFi routers for connecting to my home network and work network. If the tablet supported networked printing via CUPS I could even print directly from this tablet. The technology exists, Research In Motion needs the motivation to make it reality.
The only way I can see myself not using my pb's is if RIM does end up releasing the much rumored 10 inch tablet or lap top replacement we hear about. 53 days until BB10!
