I Hate The New iPad

by Mohd in Technology, Tips

You won’t imagine the amount of question & conversations I’ve been through about the new iPad, it’s like everyone is talking about it & thinking of buying it & some already done that even the waiter in my Gahwa & my barber asked me about the new iPad or the iPad 3 or whatever Apple is calling it.

Some of our readers even asked why didn’t I post about its release or any news about it. Well the answer is simple I absolutely hate it, don’t get my wrong I’m an Apple fan & this post your reading right now is done on an iPad 2. I’ll try to explain why but plz bare with me & set a side you emotions & Apple addiction in order to understand my point of view which probably most of you won’t agree with me.

When it fist got announced my feeling towards it could not be described, disappointed, shocked or mad are just small word to explain my thoughts towards it, it does brings some improvements to the iPad 2 still it’s not revolutionary or even close to it by any mean. The new iPad hosts a faster processor & a much improved screen compared to its predecesso, it didn’t deserve a huge event to discuss its release. Remember the amount of improvemnts between the original & iPad 2 ?

On the contrary Apple made some huge improvements on their laptop (MacBook) lines & they didn’t host an event for it just a simple update on their site & that happened a couple of times though the past couple of years.

Before you jump into the comment section & writing about the new 5 mega pixel camera & how awesome it is or that I forgot to mention it just look at this pic below & my train of thoughts will continue below it.

Plz plz plz plz & again plz don’t be that guy or girl taking pics with your iPad coz it looks so stupid use your mobile phone for GOD’s sake & save yourself from this imbaresment. Have you even encountered someone holding their iPad high to take a pic ?

Have you noticed that they look stupid ?

Any cheap mobile device would have a better camera than the iPad. So why the hell would someone use a tablet to take photos !!!!!!!

Now for the stupidest thing ever some may argue that it has a 4G LTE & it’s the next big things & some even went beyond stupidity thinking that it will be faster than the iPad 2 3G here in Kuwait. PEOPLE PLEASE 2G 3G 4G or even 5G will not make any difference coz it all depends on your mobile carrier & as I know we don’t have 4G networks yet.

That isn’t to say I think the iPad 3 is in any way a bad product. It’s probably the best tablet on the market right now, despite there being some great Android alternatives. I just think Apple could have done more on pricing, features & making it a worthwhile upgrade.

My advice which I’ve been saying it, texting it & emailing it, is simple if you own an iPad either 1 or 2 its not worth the upgrade but if you don’t own an iPad already you can go for the iPad 3 or the new iPad if you have the money but the smarter choice & what i would highly redommend is getting the iPad 2 for a bargain price.

Any one out there got convinced or even had my same thoughts or I’m the only one in K-town having these thoughts ????!!!!!

    There is no need to release a new I pad each year if they can’t handle it, 2 years will be sufficient time for them to build a new good one and for us as well, bottom line “Greeeed”

    I’m condering getting the “new” ipad for one main reason … I don’t have my own Ipad … 😛
    about the yearly slightly updated devices. the market sells. it does sell like hell… outta loving the brand and feeling better inside once owning a new version of any apple device. thats why they do it! it brings money and ppl are loving it. so why not?

      If people continue doing the same thing & buying apple products just for the sake of owning one, Apple’s developers will not care much about improving their next products & soon Apple’s competitors will surpass the big apple & leave it falling behind.

    You are saying that Apple shouldn’t have released the iPad (3rd Generation) because it did not offer a significant upgrade well then I suggest you mention this to the other companies as well Samsung for example has been releasing their Galaxy Tabs with minor modifications and multiple versions offering you nothing but a change in size and an added processor.

    Apple has done the same and you are attacking it? If you think that the Retina Display is not a big enough change then you have not seen an iPad (3rd Gen) upclose! It’s revolutionary and does make a 100000% difference! And the camera is not an improvement? Well some people prefer to record videos on it (okay granted you feel that it is wrong and it feels “stupid” but it is not for you to judge) The screen is larger and gives you a bigger grasp at editing the video afterwards and well this is just one feature out of many.

    Updating a device once a year is so that you use the latest processor and such. Look at the MacBook line it gets updated once a year with processor changes and internal upgrades nothing happens to the design (the design is updated once every 5 years or so) so research your information before you launch into a “Hatred” post simply because you don’t feel this was a
    necessary upgrade.

    P.S. You made me do this, I just had to and I toned it down so as to not see this as an attack on one of my children :@ Grrrrr!

      I was expecting u will defend them :p

      Well to begin with Samsung I did actually post about how they r making small iteration to their mobiles but for tabs they r the same but different sizes with no huge difference between them. So I did attack them J 🙂

      As for ur second point u said it ur self apple does upgrade their MacBooks every year (which is a great thing) but without a huge announcement or an event just a sudden upgrade on the site while the iPad get a huge event & so many marketing rumors all year around & it ends up having minor changes.

      I won’t deny that the Retina display is awesome Still I don’t think I would upgrade my iPad just for it alone & dont tell me it has a bigger processor coz won’t make a significant difference unless u play games on it which I’d rather not coz there r dedicated consoles for that.

      I know u wanna kill me by now to defend ur Baby :p

      @Jacqui
      Grow up girl, you are one spoilt, born with a gold spoon in the mouth, sick apple fan-boy (oops fan-girl) who likes to buy apple products (like underwear) just because they are from apple.

      This is Mohd.’s site and he has the right to say what he wants about anything and that includes saying whatever about apple products. (oh sorry I forgot they are your children) ha ha ha what a load of crap.

      And, Android products are 100 times better than apple’s, apple just like B&O and Bose charge way too much for crappy products.

    I -kind of- agree with you
    I keep telling people that Apple doesn’t come with new ideas…
    The new iPad is just improvment of the old one
    Replacing iPad 2 with this one for a better screen!! Camera!! … pla pla pla

    And about the 4G it used only in VIVA within only five areas in KWT

    Just look at the different between galaxy tab.. and the galaxy note 10.1
    This is ideas…

    any way… few days ago I have post my own opinion and advise about weather or not you should buy the new iPad
    You could have a look to this post
