Ipad 2.
All I want is a pressure sensitive pen and I'd be sold. That's all I want apple.
I'd buy an ipad if they made something like a bluetooth pen, but nothing can ever be that simple huh...

I was waiting for the Ipad2, it was only a matter of time with the new Iphone4 hype.
So all those people who just bought an Ipad are gonna be butthurt, and give or take 12 months, all those people who buy the Ipad2 are gonna be butthurt due to the Ipad3 and so on.

Damned you apple.

I haven't bought anything from apple except music which I am now not buying because it's a pain in ass since the tracks are locked to iTunes unless you burn it to a CD and then rip it which is totally a waste of time so yeah. No apples for me.

Not true. You can copy/convert any iTunes song to .mp3 through iTunes, which removes the DRM protection. :D

Apple is going to get some serious competition. I saw similar USB-compatible tablets with two cameras for a fraction of the price of iPads at the Consumer Electronics Show when I went this January. That, and their release date is also scheduled prior to Apple's intended release for iPad 2.

Edit -> Preferences -> Import Settings... Then set it to "Import using MP3 Encoder".

After that you can right-click on any song and click 'Convert to MP3'. :D

No one sane would buy an Ipad.

Ipod, Iphone, netbooks, etc. Are way better than a Ipad.

GunZet
03-06-2011, 03:03 PM
There's a market for Ipad, people have jobs making little things that work specifically in Ipad. I think useing After Effects *shrugs*.
Anyway, I know a guy in that industry, so it's perfectly sane...maybe not for the average person though.

one of my friends actually uses an ipad for EVERYTHING at uni, he uses it to take notes in all his lectures and is much easier to carry than even a netbook but is big enough to comfortably write on and he can use it to play games and stuff on and check emails and search the internet with ease and lets him have a desktop PC for proper gaming as he dosnt need a laptop

Then try Samsung Tab or the new Acer-I forget the name. Both are launched to compete with IPad and I think they are so much cooler. They are like a "real" netbook in form of tablet.

I don't know why people still are buying the thinner iPad. It's just a fancy Kindle.

Celestial-Fox

I saw a prototype version of the Samsung tab and it seems far better than what iPad currently offers. However, as you know, Apple is highly competitive and it probably working on improvements that'll compete with that.

So I read that the Ipad2 hasn't improve at all. It can't do multy tasking, it can't work with flash, etc. So why people would buy this?

Yeah you can, you put the can in the head of the guy and hit him.

Is a win win situation.

wolfman

you could probably do that with an Ipad they are surprisingly durable, and you can multi task them like you can a stone, you can beat people with it while playing geometry wars

You can always load a rock into a cannon with a can and person in front of it while adding a period to some graffiti on the wall. THat's 3 for the price of none.

Multi-tasking is not how much variety of task it can do, but how much task it can do at the same time (though in reality, it isn't really at the same time, but whatever...). In short, if you can't type in word processor while hearing some MP3's or using IM's, at the same time then it isn't multi-tasking.

Tsk. Not unless you have three rocks at hand then you can kill someone, open cans, and polish stuff at the same time! ;p

FYI Stones produce sound (which may be seen as music) as you hit someone in the head. Knowing Apply, the iPad won't make a sound, no matter how you abuse it.

+1 for the stone

Off Topic: Orly?

On Topic: The App store can give the iPad a keyboard function, but a rock just has to have more/less contents in the skull to produce different sounds.

LVUER
03-14-2011, 08:33 PM
@Rio (OOT): Ummm, but you need six hand to be able to do that ^0^

On Topic:
Lots of people hate IPad for its inability to do multitasking. Apple says that's to save batteries (that's why it have 10 hours operating time). But really, others manage to achieve the same, with complete netbook capability (USB ports, multitouch touchscreen, multitasking, fast processor, and so on). That's why I advise you to just buy other brand. Except if you live for brand and fashion, then go buy IPad to brag about it...

Byakuran
03-21-2011, 04:23 PM
I rather have a laptop with i7 though. my sis has one of those and it is awesome.

Also a guy in my class has a mac with 10 processors...

Also you can't use wi-fi on a stone can you? can you play app games on yur stone? Ipad has speakers right or not use earplugs? so it does have sound. but a stone is still less expensive but you can't show off with it.

Rio
03-21-2011, 08:23 PM
Stones can be more expensive than the ipad. Don't forget - diamonds and other gems are considered stones.

GunZet

An ipad can't make me feel rich and special. So I guess I'll get a stone instead.

A stone can break an Ipad. So obviously, never use the the Ipad against the Stone in rock paper scissor.

ok o-o they dont suck, they are perfect for uni students who dont want to lug around a laptop, one of my friends does all of his uni notes on his ipad, you can use it to read books, you can buy and read comics on it which i was doing yesterday and is amazingly easy to do and use and easy on the eyes, the keyboard is easy to use and if you really dont like it you can use a bluetooth one, they are very durable yet light and thin, you can use them to check emails, browse online and the sheer number of apps means you can do soooo much on them from playing games, planning routes, connecting to WoW or eve and sorting your AH armory or skills
the only downside i can see is the price and tbh if you use it properly and know what your doing on it you can justify the price

ClockHand
03-25-2011, 04:41 PM
You can do all that in a Netbook to, and is: cheaper, multistaking, has a camera (a good one, like the one of the ipad2) and you have USB port.

So again, Ipad still sucks.

ClockHand

actually ipads can multitaks it got patched in a while ago o-o
an ipad can do alot of what netbooks are for internet browsing and lots more
technology gets more expensive the smaller and thinner it is hence why netbooks are still expensive for what you get in the smaller ones and ipads are smaller yet than netbooks and easier to carry round and as you pointed out they are getting a camera....
and ohnoes no usb port.......

http://www.demenciadigital.com/uncategorized/ipad-vs-netbooks/

http://www.differencebetween.com/difference-between-ipad-2-and-vs-netbook/

So you think its reasonable for Ipad2 to cost 499$ to 829$? While a netbook cost from 250$ to 900$, just because is not smaller than the Ipad2?

GunZet
03-25-2011, 07:40 PM
I don't think anything Apple makes has a reasonable price.

wolfman
03-25-2011, 09:10 PM
i cant even read one of those links @_@
if you had simply said the ipad is overpriced fair dos i probably wouldn't have said something but it does not suck its a great piece of hardware, yes its expensive

gives a physical keyboard to work with, which is not there in iPad 2. Virtual keyboard in iPad 2 makes typing long text documents a tedious job.

while you cant use a usb keyboard you can get bluetooth ones which are still small and still make carrying them around easier than a netbook/laptop

im not saying the ipad is better than netbooks or more cost effective as personally i would much rather have a laptop/netbook but that does not make the ipad crap it is a cool gadget if you are willing to spend the money on it but is not a replacement for a laptop

ClockHand
03-25-2011, 09:17 PM
Would you say the Ipad is better than any of the following products: 3DS, DSI, PSP2, Ipod, Netbook, Laptop, Tablets.?

wolfman
03-25-2011, 09:21 PM
i dont know i dont use most of them enough to comment, i would never replace my laptop with one, i dont use a DS for anything but pokemon and i rarely use a tablet

im not arguing that its better than any of them, im arguing because of the following comment

That wouldn't change the fact that the Ipad sucks.

ClockHand
03-25-2011, 09:33 PM
I'm proving that the Ipad and Ipad2 are the most useles piece of technology now. Technology that can't compite against a netbook, laptop or even a DS, and for worst of all, is expensive as shit. With all that I'm saying that Ipad and Ipad2 sucks, and nothing have changed, you haven't prove they don't, and certainly Unreal Technology would change the fact that as piece of technology are way behind.

And the most important part, is that people find them good or cool. Apple has a great way to sell expensive shit as cool, they don't seel you a computer, they sell you a Mac and with this Mac they are selling you a image of how Mac makes everything easier, clean and cool. Of course we know that is not true, but people still fell in Apples marketing trap and waste a lot of money in something overated.

For my all this makes Ipad and Ipad2 the worst piece of technology marketing focused in hipsters who want to look cool.

Naw but dude, you're wrong. Epic makes everything better than it is. And I don't seem to understand what you mean by this list. Because well...the PSP2 isn't even out yet unless I'm missing something. You've used an ipad, PSP2, and 3DS?

Either way. I'll never buy one. I'll just casually fiddle around with whoever I happen to randomly bump into. Mess with a feature for a second and go "oh hey, that's cool" and give it back.

LVUER
03-26-2011, 10:40 PM
Like I said, you buy Apple for brand and way of life, not for the technology inside it. All Apple brand is overpriced simply because it works like fashion brand, not technology/electronics one. If you have Apple TV (or whatever it's called), Ipad, Mac, IPhone, and some other bunch of Apple stuff, then you will truly feel how awesome Apple is... Well, not me. The only reason why I want to buy IPod touch is just because I want to make some games for it and sell it in AppStore (or IStore...).
