I got this email at about 4:30 in the morning, and when I read it at 7:30 I just kind of sat there and thought "This is saying something without actually saying anything." So basically I can expect my iPad anytime between today and April 30th. I get the feeling this is code for ... "They'll be shipping April 30th." I would have appreciated it much more if they could have actually given me a specific day ... we're getting down to the wire here.
I can tell you from experience there are A LOT of people who do stupid things, or have stupid things happen to their devices and then lie about it to the Genius/Specialist and then get belligerent when they're called on it. There are also people who legitimately have an issue, and didn't violate their warranty, but there are by far the minority and usually are easier to spot out. If you've done any sort of work at all with repairing or diagnosing Apple products it...
This should be entertaining ... I can see the opening argument now. "Your honor we demand compensation for imagined damages because the defendant is a no good poo-poo head, and hasn't been nice to us." Heres an idea ... why doesn't Adobe spend their time and energy fixing their product so it doesn't need to be eschewed. Just an idea ...
Ummmm ... the iPhone 3GS is compatible with all the features in the 4.0 OS ... I'm pretty sure Apple is CURRENTLY (captials for extra emphasis) selling them (because I've had one for well over eight months). I can understand you're upset (for some reason), but please spare us your false diachotomies and melodrama ...
Yup, I just got home and there was my iPad case sitting on my front door. Received the iPad dock I pre-ordered last Saturday ... now all I have to do is wait about three weeks for my pre-ordered 64GB 3G iPad to arrive, and then I can actually use these accessories. p.s. I also thought this was kind of funny. I've been "excited" shall we say to get my iPad and my girlfriend really isn't very keen on Apple (except for her iPod Nano) ... she's been telling me how...
I know for me ... I have already pre-ordered the 64GB 3G iPad, so there really isn't too much need for me to go to an Apple Store on launch day if I know I'm not going to buy one. I really want the 3G connectivity for when I'm traveling, so the WiFI only model doesn't appeal to me as much. I stood in line launch day for the orginal 2.5G iPhone and the iPhone 3GS, and I know how hectic those stores get when new products come out -- I'm honestly trying to avoid it, and I...
I watched the show last night with my girlfriend, and I was laughing hysterically at Phil and his iPad drama. My girlfriend turned to me with an unenthusiastic look on her face and shortly said, "thats you." Classic ...
You think Steve would have learned his lesson after the way Microsoft burned Apple in the 80's ...
I know my brother-in-law is one of them. He works at the Redmond Campus, and he's told me one of his greatest fears is being caught with it on him at work. Shouldn't Steve Balmer use this as an opportunity to step back and wonder why 10% of his employees would risk such alienation and backlash ... I'm sure there are even more MS empoyees that would buy one if they weren't so worried about being caught with one at work. I remember an article I read months ago about...
Is the iPad a game changer ... that seems to be what everyone is arguing about. At its core its not incredibly unique as far as technology or software goes (more evolutionary than revolutionary). However, the potential of the iPad given Apple's public reputation for innovation, and yes ... its closed ecosystem demonstrate how it can excell where other have failed. I have been still debating whether or not I would buy an iPad, but after watching that video, and...
