iPad 2 Is Officially Announced: Yay Or Nay? [Pic]

Submitted by: fancylad 6 years ago in Tech

Thinner, faster, front and rear cams and it looks like it comes in fruity colors. Any I-A-Ber use these things?

Ebenezer Jobs can`t find a way to charge money for the free online Flash apps and this makes him angry. Guy`s a total money-grubbing dick who had to be forced by the court to pay child support for his daughter after DNA tests proved he was the father. He stole his best ideas from Xerox, and Bill Gates is almost a saint by comparison to the way Jobs does business (which sure isn`t saying a hell of a lot).

Don`t worry. They`ll include Flash in iPad 3. Coming next year.

I am upset that Apple still doesn`t allow Flash. They would get so much more customers if they allowed an app from Adobe Flash. DAMN YOU!

Same old Apple release - release a new model with the features we all expected the previous version to have, make it a bit smaller/thinner/lighter and brand it as the most innovative product imaginable

Oh look, bigger version of the iPod, with a different processor.

I`ll wait for the prices to come down on the Android tablets. kthxbye.

P.S. EVERYTHING is sold separately, but would we expect anything else from Apple?

I love my iPad, if that makes me a sheeple (sheeperson?) then brilliant. I enjoy being happy and it`s more than paid for itself since I bought it.

I do want an iPad 2, I tend to upgrade to these things and then my girlfriend gets the hand-me-downs rather than having to buy one herself. I`ll get one when I`ve got some money to burn, which isn`t right now.

Cost of iPad = $499 to $829 US

Cost of Nook Color + laptop = $250 + $200 to $800

I`d much rather buy a cheap, thoughtfully-designed e-reader that actually fits in my hand AND a well-priced laptop...
Without a keyboard that will let me type 80 - 100 wpm or flash, the ipad is about as useful to me as a bicycle without wheels.

It still won`t work with flash, still has no memory card port, and they didn`t even upgrade the display resolution.

Still, The apple sheeple will buy it anyways.

I am satisfied with my 5 year old lap top that deliverers everything up to my expectations and refuse to purchase anything that exceeds my satisfaction. Of course they have devices that are 10Xs better than the ones they are currently marketing. They just release the best next thing when supplies start to decline and fool people into believing what they currently own is obsolete.

I dunno why i`m just not excited for any kind of tablet computer. I think they`re just too limited right now, give `em a few years, they`ll be the new standard, i`ll get them then. Just like i waited on getting a smart phone...waited until they were actually smart.

We have an ipad in the house and it`s a rather fun thing to have. We do pretty casual browsing on it and it was really handy to use in situations where we went out of town. The GPS system was pretty accurate and helped us navigate through Baltimore. I will say though that my boyfriend recently got the iphone and that also has a GPS function which is much easier and helpful in traffic when you don`t have an easy way to keep looking down at the screen (it talks to you). But essentially the iphone now made the ipad obsolete for the navigation function it was so helpful for.

My general viewpoint on apple products is that they are not a must have. They are fun to have but they get a bit redundant for certain functions. I think Apple would do well to make their computers and products more family oriented in a way that it can hold multiple users and make them more relevant for sharing amongst people in the household.

If you have money to burn: Fun. Otherwise... you won`t d

Apple has a knack for massively overstating the benchmarks because they know their customers are no good with technology so they wont be able to tell whether the specs are really what apple stated, so im pretty skeptical of 9x better graphics, they also stated 2x faster processing coz of a dual core 1 GHz but iOS software isnt optimised for dual core processors and i doubt apps will take advantage of it either due to the small ipad market compared to iphone market. Bottom line, Apple massively overstates specs again but sadly this will still probably be the best tablet to buy until other companies get their act together. Expect Tegra based Android tablets to dominate the future though

I once used an ipad to do some research for a class. Surfing the net on one of these things is like making silk from silkworms instead of using synthetic silk; sure you can do it, but there`s another faster, cheaper and easier way to do it right in front of you.

bubba,

everything you said. someone else did it first.

apple is good at making you think they are innovators, they are just good at marketing. their personal computers are crap, which is why they only have an 8% market share.

their phone, was far from revolutionary. i have an iphone4 and i didnt have it for more than 20 minutes before i jailbroke it and modded the phone so it is so far from an apple product the only way you can recognize it is because of the shape.

the ipad is a piece of poo that is only good for games and there are much smaller units available.

their music player is ok, but personally i believe the sansa line is better. more user friendly, accepts more file types and cost less than half the price.

they are great advertisers for making people believe they need their products, that is all.

you realize that apple didn`t have the first personal computer, mouse, GUI, digital music player, or even the click wheel right? also, terms like commercially successful and ground breaking are highly interpretable. Basically, apple is very good at appealing to people with alot of money and not alot of brains, and they are good at calling first

Apple is crap. always has been. Yes its true that they have come out with `new` ideas, but it still doesnt change the fact that these new ideas are crap. The reason everyone improves apples ideas is because apple leaves so much room for improvement. Sweet Geezus! Blackberry, Microsoft, and a few others are taking apples `idea` and making it there own. first gen stuff from BB, and Microsoft and it already blows apples 2g crap outta the water. WAKE UP! The ONLY reason apple is still around is so others can turn that crap into gold.

I played around with a friend`s iPad, and it wasn`t bad, if all you want to do is look at news, forums, etc.

Seems pointless, though, when you could buy a decent laptop that will do all that, and much more, for the same price.

Some people don`t like Apple products but the fact remains that they have been the innovator in computer technology for 30 years. First fully integrated personal computer, first mouse, first GUI, first digital music player, first genuinely ground-breaking phone, first commercially successful slate computer. In other words, first in almost every meaningful computer category since the invention of the personal computer. Others may have taken what they did and improved or changed it but you cannot deny that they did it first, and after other people jump on their ideas, they come back and do it again. So hate on them all you want but remember that in almost every computer category, Apple most likely thought of it first.
