Doesn't Hollywood, er, Cupertino have any original ideas?

Once upon a time, Apple took a halfway decent desktop computer, hobbled it, and came up with the Pippin.

Thirteen and a half years later, they've uncorked the Stupid Sauce and poured a generous quantity on a tablet computer. Sigh, whimper.

By the end of this year, I want to see at least one significant competitor announce an ARM-based Netbook with a comparable display, a built-in SDHC slot, running a "fully functional" open-source operating system, and retailing for $100 less. Bonus points if they play nice with Sprint and Verizon.
