Are you in your right mind? Who the fuck first of all demanded when apple should release the iPad? Did anyone here demand apple change their product cycles to fit our needs? Jesus Christ...
Who also demanded what they release? What are the big deal requests that have befallen on poor apple, I didn't see anyone demanding anything particularly onerous or futuristic, dual epaper and LCD screens, touch reactive screens, specially pretreated non glare glass, major os overhauls, near field communicators, rfids, security via voice recognition or retina's in the eyes. And even if they had done so it's a damn tech forum, people are justified in running a bit wild with their requests.
People merely said that ok you are selling us a device that can do so much, but the storage is so shit in the entry model(s) we might not be even able to do 1/10th of what we d like.
It's the right of customers to demand, they do it in car fora, in electrical appliances fora, in apparel fora, why is somehow apple exempt from all that?
And what big effing deal product is apple providing us that we should just shut up and say, apple knows best. Jobs had the foresight to create a very useful and practical device to take advantage of the slate form factor and the touch screen and now apple is incrementally making it better. The ipad was and is great as an idea and as an execution of the idea. Should we bow down and kiss their feet for sticking in a much better display (which someone else invented btw...but anyway apple is a systems integrator), cause iPad 3 is pretty much this, a great display, not much to write home on ram and CPU, and seriously crippled in terms of storage as it seems from the rumours so far?
If some of you guys, particularly you, who are otherwise very intelligent people but when it comes to apple you are delusional, if a few of you here had come off your high horse and jut said granted, storage is shit to be the same as 3 years ago, to be rhe same as the iPod nano, and to be the same as a low end smart phone, and conceded this point, the discussion would have moved on to something sane, other the insanity of having to debate the obvious...
