    Thank you!!! Couldn’t have said it better myself… Just a little pissed that my 6month old iPad 3 just became obsolete… These guys have it nailed on keeping the sheep upgrading…

    And on another note…. iPad 1 users should really be fuming…. No iOS updates beyond 5.1…. C’mon, REALLY? I’m already seeing apps that require iOS 6. Damn thing is only 2 years old. Used to be a windows type guy for the freedom (hated apple), but grew to love apple because their stuff always works with little hassle (tired of playing computer geek- now i just want to turn a computer on, get the job done and turn the thing off without having to do all the maintenance). I used to get a kick out of playing computer-boy, but at this point in my life I have more important stuff to do, so I just treat it as an appliance for simple tasks (remember web tv?). My last PC purchase eons ago was a pentium 4 w/ XP that still runs my entertainment center till this day- just upgraded to the newest Internet Explorer and runs great… Apple makes great stuff, but they are getting greedy—gonna bite them in the ass eventually…

    If I had an iPad 3, I would probably think similarly, Kevin. As it stands, I’m awfully tempted to buy a refurbished 3rd gen. iPad 32GB wifi model for $469 from the Apple Store. Is the 4th gen. iPad’s bump in speed very noticeable in applications outside of certain intensive games? Frankly, I doubt it, but I’ve been wrong before.

    And then again, the rumored Nexus 10 is awfully tempting. If it is as good as the Nexus 7 has been, it may be the way to go. I’m not invested in one eco-system or the other, having only a very few paid apps on my iPhone 4S.

    Any thoughts or things to consider would be appreciated.

    just to clarify …”ultrafast” wireless on 4th gen ipad is dual band antennas right ?

    The Kindle Fire, Nexus 7 are better options (money wise) than the iPad mini and the Surface with Office RT is definitely a very good alternative (better one if you need office to get stuff done) to any iPad!

    I’m definitely hoping customers start appreciating other alternatives besides the iPad! :)
