iPad already out of date

Written by Nick Farell

New one on the way
As we have predicted Steve Jobs is planning to ditch the first model of the iPad earlier than expected. Normally Apple changes its models once a year to make sure that people regularly pay it large sums of money to stay up to date.

However according to AppleInsider, Jobs has seen the competition he is going to get from Android tablets and wants to head them off at the pass. This means releasing a version of the tablet that has all the things that the Android machines have.

A version of the tablet device with a built-in video camera and support for the new FaceTime video conferencing standard has already progressed to the advanced testing stages. Apparently there is a plan to get the new tablet out by Christmas.

It seems that even Apple is a bit bemused by the iPad as it has done very well without having a reason to exist yet.

ahahaha... sorry but I had to laugh at all those geeks waiting in line for days to get an out of date ipad.
Steve Jobs thought: "Lets slap on some alluminium for the cover to make it look fancy and for the rest of the components use some outdated stuff"...... hmmm great idea!!!

If they didn't update their products, haters would attack them for being behind the times. I expect haters to find a reason to hate them for updating their products as well, but that's what haters do.

Why? They never bothered doing that with the iPhone. Look how long it took them to release simple things like copy/paste. They know that Apple fanboys will buy the new product regardless of competition or how outdated the so called new features are.

"Haters?" :roll:

Is there something not to dislike about their scams? cheap-built products? lame developed software? lack of support? nevermind the annoying fans that get into our faces about how great these fruity-loops are, even if we don't want to be bothered by them... about them?

MacBooks Pro are cheap built products? Have you ever used one? (to be honest, most iPods lack good build quality:))
List of "lame" software: Final Cut Pro, Compressor, Motion, Aperture...all of these are pro-media apps used by majority of market, not some "fart app" crap from iPhone. Profesionals are probably idiots, riiiiiight...
Lack of support...lol, how can you know, if you never used "fruit-themed-crap"?
Generaly, check your facts kid.

The iPad for most users has been a terrible buy from the start when they could have gotten a dirt cheap TC1100 or fujitsu stylistic for around $200 us.

Apple has the best support out there. If something breaks, you just take it to the Apple Store. Try that with a Dell.

Not to mention that most of their products have the best build quality in their class. But you've never used or owned one, obviously.

Someone already explained your ignorance on software.
