A tablet is just a tablet without content or purpose.
Apple tends to complicate things as well. Any device they seem to make always require attention, a learning curve, backups or updates or something else to focus your attention. It's like a low grade version of Windows.
People just want a device that solves their problem and requires little or no attention.
Also people are looking for things to do that makes them or saves them money, not much into things that cost them money.
Although the recent jobs number is flat, this just means employers are keeping their staff for the holiday buying season where almost 50% of a years sales occurs, after that, come the new year, expect the unemployment rate to skyrocket.
It's going to be bad, real bad.
And it's going to stay that way until we vote out the liberal socialist sub-prime causing mess members of Congress who forced Freddie and Fannie in 2005 to get into the sub-prime market.
I'm sorry, you just can't give a house to people who can't afford it on the backs of everyone else.
The sub-prime mess started with California liberal companies and banks and reached into the Congress when it switched parties.
Sorry about the rant, but if people are paying too much or underwater on their mortgages, they certainly don't have as much to spend on luxuries or new computer toys like a iTablet.
When the government starts raising the property taxes, expect the rents to go up and tent cities to pop up like it is already happening in California.
