My iPod doesn`t need to do anything for me other than play music. I`m content until it breaks.

I do want to get an iPad, but only because I have a cheap reliable phone and plan (StraightTalk $30/month) but has some crappy internet. I don`t want to get a new plan or phone but I want internet where ever I go. If I could I would cover up the Apple logo.

@mvangild

that`s exactly why they do it. They build up the excitement and make sure people are just waiting for it so the impulse shoppers don`t have time to think about it and decide they don`t need it. Maybe not to sucker people into buying what`s out, but that whole "oh it`s so new I need to have it!" thing.

It`s just stupid how people buy things they don`t need, like the "four Iphones duck taped together" a.k.a. the Ipad. Pretty much everyone has an Iphone by now which is just as good but easier to carry.

I think the one thing about Apple I`m not crazy about is how secretive they are about new products. I mean, we all know they`re working on them. So, why keep things like the iPad and iPhone 4 so tightly under wraps until about a month before release? Other than to sucker as many people as they can into buying what`s currently out? If they announced a new iPad was coming out in 3 months, those of us thinking about getting one would wait. They`re not losing customers, it`s just delayed purchasing. Don`t get me wrong. I think Apple OS is far away better than Windows, and Apple did put a lot of thought into their products. I just don`t like some of their business practices.

I hate "apple-haters", what`s wrong with you all?
It`s just electronic stuff..I mean..apple, microsoft or whatever.. if you like the iPad, you buy it..if you don`t like you don`t buy it.. AS EVERYTHING ELSE!! and electronics upgrades are too fast, everybody knows it! STOP HATING..IT IS SO ANNOYING..

Loxen is right. We`ve all been in this boat for years. All electronics go out of date just as fast. It`s not just an Apple thing.

I can always count on The Oatmeal for a laugh in these comics. And yes, people as obsessive as this guy would sell their house for $400.

Oatmeal has illustrated the main reason why I will never get an iphone or ipad. Owning something that`s suddenly defunct in 6 months is never fun.

Actually that should be `What it`s like being a dumbass`. I own two apple products, and haven`t felt some kind of crack-addicted need to "upgrade" poo that works just fine for stupid improvements I don`t need. The same cartoon would probably apply to gamer nerds who need whatever new or improved system comes out.

I have a Dell Axim that I got way before the Iphone/ipad nonsense ever existed (Still a very handy PDA) and it was pretty much obsolete within 5-6 months. Its just the way of things.
Apparently apple users (who are a tad slow to the tech scene) are now where the rest of us have been for a while.
The slow bus has finally arrived at the pool.
Jump in, the water is crappy.

@jamie76

For the most part I agree with what you said. However, there is one thing apple does better than the rest. That would be marketing. Appealing to the ignorant sheep of society that are just soooo frustrated with those fancy fan-dangled devices they couldn`t figure out if they had a gun to their head. It costs money to be ill-informed these days.

Hence why one should always wait.

Patience builds character, it also ensures that you are given the opportunity to purchase a better version of technology.

Nokia were doing this for eyars with their mobile phones. They would release one model then 3 months later release it again but with an "i" at the end. It was only marginally slightly better than its predecessor.
for instance. the Nokia 7250 was released. 3 months later the 7250i was released. With a "night" mode for the camera.
And so on.....
Ptoooey

you know what else it is like? it`s like getting crapped on by steve jobs all day and night long knowing that he controls the device YOU PAID FOR. It is also like knowing that you paid too much for something when there are better alternatives that cost less and that work better on the market.

iphone < most any android
iPad < HP Slate
Mac < any decently made cutom PC which cost thousands less and runs way faster and can play the hell out of all the games the Mac has never even heard of.
Zune = iPod And I own an ipod classic and a shuffle and I still know the zune is every bit as good-both were gifts by the way).

there is nothing apple is doing better than anyone else except making you believe they do.
