    General iPad3 talk

    Advertisement



    Well? I SOLD my iPad2 yesterday, earlier than planned. I'm going through withdraws at the moment b/c it's my go to device every morning for consuming everything digital that is new. News, Tweets, Emails, Messages, Intell (work) etc.

    I told myself I was going to wait till March knowing it would be a good bet the iPad3 would be very close to release but looking in the eyes of a 10 yo boy along with his fathers smile was enough to weaken me. He was so proud walking out the door with a new iPad2.

    Now to my second day thoughts.

    I did not realize how much it's all about the Apps. I planned on re-opening my Laptop or setting at my desktop getting the same morning, afternoon, nightly fix of stuff and it hit me like a tons of bricks. THIS SUCKS!

    Sure......... I can access all the same and I'm not missing anything but it's simply not as convenient nor enjoyable. I have no desire to set as long or digest as much. I think this next month or so will be interesting in the sense it will give me a new look at how I prefer to use devices to consume and product.

    I can't imagine not having a smartphone and this is the first time I've really had that feeling. Point is a Laptop or Desktop gives me a heavy (don't care to use) feeling for much of my daily travels.

    Can't WAIT for the iPad3 release!

    I'm with you. I use my laptop maybe 10% of the time I'm at home on the Internet. The rest of my browsing, emails, etc is done on my iPad. Its soooo convenient to pick up the iPad and surf away. I'll be selling it as soon as the IP 3 drops, can't wait.

    My iPad 2 and the wife's iPad were our saviours in Italy. Even with the (very) patchy and 20th century WiFi and 3G networks. WiFi is like chicken teeth... and when you find it it's like 5 US $ for 10 minutes... yikes.
    But for my basic up to date link to work back in Portugal, mail, and just pure work with DocsToGo, combined with Go Docks (sync to Google Docs) it was enough. And efficient. I'm talking iPads here. Not Italy.
    Italy is full of s**t - they brag a lot but don't have anything compared to home. That's a fact. At home, around where I live and work, anywhere, WiFi is a given...Thank goodness.

    It's been 5 days now without my iPad. I've learned mornings and evenings are the times which it's missed most. It's so easy to simply grab the iPad and navigate around feeding my needs where my Laptop seems to be like a brick of consuming pain. Don't even get me started on the desktop. That is simply like "work".

    I'm not even sure a new "Air" type device would solve the problem? A tablet device has actually worked it's way into my daily life.
    Who wudda thunk? Certainly not me.

    I don't like ipads, iphones.... I love android, because i can write any utilities myself and use it. So let apple blow itself up but ipad/iphone will never be the top product. Yes, i mean the TOP product, because it could be a top seller thanks to agiotage and people who wait to see a next jalied (read useless) device LOL but for people who once have used a good phone/pad with Android OS the iOS/iProducts will never be the top again.
    But, i couldn't say that about the Mac OS though..

    JaO

    Well, since i do use iOS and Android simultaneously I tend to agree. I have nothing against either, but admit that Android, for me, still answers my needs more completely. No laughing matter, this.

    Why is my no so smiling face in srl's post? Hmmmm. That one made me have to do a double take. And maxrfon, I've had a "good" android device, and it does NOT hold a candle to my i4S.

    Funny how my criticism of anything leads you to think that may be a reason for not using it. Hell, I love them all. And criticize them all. And when I criticize it doesnt mean I don't like them. Quite the contrary.
    And then again, I like to have them all. And use them all. And keep an open unobnoxious mind open. That way I feel more comfortable when I opinionate.
