Why doesn't O'Reilly publish "iPad Annoyances"? Heaven knows that Apple has integrated a lot of them!

I agree with Alejandro on this, don't just post up some whine... put the cheese there too. And to show I'm not just a grumpy troll I'll start the list off with this:
Spell Correction: I hate the fact that you can't have an exclusion list. Every time I type my online name of "macnlos" it wants to replace it with "Mac Los". I should be able to ignore this.

here's my iPad annoyances list:
1) No Flash support
2) On the iPad 2 the rear camera should not have been there at all, the quality is so bad that it's embarrasing to try and take any pictures with it, or switching to it when using Skype.
3) The whole idea behind the "hanging" bar (i.e.when viewing email on Portrait mode) is terrible! Their usability team must have been drunk or high, or both.
4) Why is the keyboard layout not QWERTY? Its such a pain to type in passwords that use special characters because the keyboard layout makes it harder to remember them.
5) Multi-tasking without a kill-all switch is a major miss. Having to manually kill one app at a time? Come on!
6) The capacitive touch as fancy as it may be it is also rather restrictive because you can't use a decent stylus to take notes. Whoever tells me that they can take notes with their fingers just fine I will tell them in their face that there is no way that is ergonomic at all.
7) The optional keyboard usage with the iPad is a joke too. You have to constantly mix touch and keyboard because navigation in forms and apps was not designed using any tab-order at all.
8) iPad WiFi only? This is the iPod Touch XL. I hope that model goes away soon. Like next year.
9) The magnetic smart cover is neat but there is no easy way to make the iPad 2 stand in portrait mode (relibly); the iPad 1's ugly thick cover actually gets the trick done, though its ugly design steals all the cool factor of owning an iPad.
10) Having to erase my iPad when syncing to a new computer? Why not do the same thing you (yes, you Apple) already do with songs authorization? Then don't have to reinstall everything.
Enough said... For now
