  I find it hard to believe you still can't make the connection.   Of course Apple (or any company), do not control it's customers in the literal sense, but they do control them, or to a lesser degree, influence them with marketing hype.
  You're putting words in my mouth. I said, "I know people don't have to upgrade every year, but most Apple users can't stop themselves...."  Adding or replacing is irrelevant, they're still upgrading.   I agree.
"The iPad mini is forecast to get off to a strong but modest start this weekend with sales of up to 1.5 million units..."   But they neglect to tell you they're including presales which started 1 week ago.
  Of course not, but a lot of people here will believe it can.
  It's good you have an open mind and are willing to try it.  Most people on these boards are not.   There have been many posts from people saying they can't wait to buy the latest gadget. It give's them the excuse to hand down the current gadget to their spouse or kid.
  ALL types of media, whether it’s movies, music, books, photos or web pages, look better and sound better on the Kindle Fire HD than any iPad     Amazon was incorrect because they got their information from Apple's spec page. Best speaker placement on any tablet would be the landscape side. And that's how Amazon put them on the Fire HD.     WRONG. You are factually incorrect like Amazon was. Should we hang you too?   ipad2 speaker assembly from ifixit.  I count 4...
I was commenting about how the whole speaker setup on the ipads are terrible.   I know you don't want to, but after listening to a Fire, you might like it.   I know people don't have to upgrade every year, but most Apple users can't stop themselves. Apple is controlling them like a drug dealer does his addicts.
    It can be called stereo speakers, but Amazon wanted to point out there are 2 speakers per side. They are using that feature to differentiate their product from other tablets, specifically the iPad.   Multiple drivers are common in home stereos, but not on tablets. If Amazon called it 2 drivers per speaker then 90% of their customers wouldn't know what the heck they were talking about.     What I find more interesting is, the iPad2 & 3 have stereo speakers. Apple...
  Yes, that's why Apple is buying from them. No other company can build them as well and as fast, as Samsung.
    Oh please, compared to AM radios the ipad sounds good.  Compared to the Kindle Fire HD, ipad speakers suck.
