I know right who wants to hear that 6 months after they dropped 500$+ on something the new version came out and that's only if they bought it like day of release

45% of Ipad owners are idiots for even caring about ipad 3, clearly showing all they want is the next apple toy on a more cyclical release schedule. Jobs knew this. He knew his fans were all sheep, but he also knew how to control them. 1 year is a pretty standard figure for most people. Renewing something on a yearly basis, even if it's something like computer hardware feels natural to them. They dont quite see it as a rip off since "hey, I do lots of things on a yearly schedule". 7 months is too soon. Not because it's premature from a hardware standpoint, because even 1 year is too soon. But it's too soon for the avg apple idiot to feel comfortable with their yearly upgrade.

They should have just called it an iPad 3S. That would have taken some of the edge off.

As it stands, Apple is finally seeing the down side of its enviable customer base of loyal, price-insensitive early adopters.

I don't understand why these people make more money than I do?
Maybe I'm the moron in this whole equasion....
Or maybe I just feel bad about ripping other people off so much that I work hard so I can live with myself better?
Then again, I have no debt; I probably AM richer than most iSheep

[citation][nom]Azn Cracker[/nom]Just today, there must be 4 or 5 apple articles written by Zak Islam. Was Steve Jobs his butt buddy or something?[/citation]
You do realize this article doesn't put Apple in a favorable light right? Did you even read the article or just assume since it was about Apple it had to be something praising them because the latter seems more plausible based on your idiotic comment.

You iHaters are as bad and as hypocritical as the iSheep. Like it or not, Apple is a huge player in the tech world. They are one of the most valuable companies in the world and their products are loved by millions. That makes them relevant tech news. Tom's would not be a relevant tech site if they ignored Apple.

This happens all the time in the android world. The best android phone only hold their title for a month or two, until a new one comes out that's faster/lighter/better battery life/better screen, etc.

"45 percent of participants were disgruntled by the iPad 4's announcement due to the iPad 3 launch several months ago....the iPad 4, which Apple is said to be upgrading early next year, will release this Friday."

is apple seriously that worried about the msft surface that they couldn't just wait a few more months and release the ipad4 with the upgrades?

Geezez. What cry babies. This isn't new concept of buying something where in a few months new models comes out. Big deal. Sell the old one, buy the new one and shut the hell up about it.

The iBrats should be grateful that Apple products carry highest resale value than any electronics out there.

I think Apple still remembers what MS and it's ways did to them long ago and are worried about a repeat performance :p

Big difference, it never is from the same company. Apple is one company, the best android phones are made by many companies at different times.
 


The problem is most people in the Android world LIKE their phone and if something comes out a few months later with slightly better hardware they STILL like their phone. Granted they had a choice to get the features they want when they bought it, unlike apple.

Apple. heck I just don't get. Why would you care if a minor update came out? worse why would you buy it? oh right. it's only a status thing so you can say you have it. But then... It makes sense for apple. Some will buy every 6 months. Some will gripe and buy every year

But then WHY ON EARTH would you get an iPad "mini" when you have an iPad....
 
It seems to me that the only reason you'd be unhappy about a new iPad coming out soon after one you bought, is that if you feel you have to always have the newest Apple toy. The iPad 3 is still the same thing they bought. Why does it matter if a new one comes out?

You people you should have lived in the Socialist block where new products would come every 5-10-20 years like new car models or so...
Yeah, Apple's users are so dumb it is unbelievable. They get angry because they always have to have the latest but it costs them an arm and a leg and they cannot keep up. You know you could use your iPhone/iPad for longer than a season!!! You could use one for at least 3-4 years until the battery dies!

As much as I despise anything CrApple makes, my girlfriend's iPad 3 screen is down right impressive. I steal it to read news and Tom's articles in bed.

I wouldn't mind getting my hands on another tablet with high resolution in the future, but I'll wait until Android hardware and software has improved some. I'm in no rush...
