Here's an article that provides some insight about people who actually bought the iPad
, and actually used them:"A Parent’s Struggle With a Child’s iPad Addiction"
Contrary to what many detractors here, those who found the role of the iPad, or other iOS devices in their lives, and their family do not talk about how many rams, or what resolution their devices are.
They talk about the applications that they found useful, or how their children were impacted. Some talk about how improved the lives of some of the more disadvaantaged - the autistic, the deaf, the blind, the disabled, etc.
They do not talk about "upgrade potentials" but what they can do with the device, here and now.
They are aware of the imperfections of the device but take it as it is, because of the other things it can do for them to enhance the quality of their lives.
So, it is like choosing a boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife or partner in whatever endeavor. The ideal is desired but it is an illusion because we can always think of something more ideal.
It is about taking the totality of a being, and in this case, in our discussion, the device, and see if they can be part of our life.
It is pathetic, and borders pathological, for people to "dislike" and "hate" and obsess talking and writing about their hate and dislike. And, even more delusional to think that they can persuade others, in forums like this, those who have found the iPad or whatever device, would simply turnabout and embrace the perspective of hatred and envy.
A post or two is excusable. But, hundreds, or thousands, or tens of thousands of posts -- reposting the same hatred and dislike, in every conceivable guize?
If it is adulation and acceptance you crave for your perspective of hatred and envy of anything Apple is your goal, you may find more resonance in sites that like or adore the tech devices of your own choosing.
And, if you are being paid to do so, I would have greater respect for a prostitute -(s)he is only selling his/her body, not his(her) soul and mind.
Get a life!
