The iPad is claimed as the Kindle Killer with its new eBook reader,
and its amazing 3D transition it really is a great experience for
reading a children’s book. However, let’s face it a Kindle and an iPad are very different, screen wise. The screen of the Kindle looks like a piece of paper with its E-Ink screen, as appose to the iPhone with its glossy screen and glare the screen has a huge impact on how to read a book. If you have ever been on a computer a lot playing a video game or
reading an article your eyes, get dried out. Eyestrain is often caused by
excessively bright light coming in from outside and excessively bright
light inside. As you can imagine the Kindle is MADE to read books. The
screen looks like paper and doesn’t use LED’s to “brighten” and “color”
the screen. It looks just like paper solving the problem of your eye’s
getting strained. Eye dryness can cause much permanent damage to your eye and when you’re reading a book your eyes are very focused to the screen and if the screen is causing you not to blink as much as 10+ hours a day you might be actually in risk of a health issue by just reading on the iPad. With its bright display and fancy 3d display is it really worth it?
Apple really likes making money with over 65billion dollars in the bank,
they really don’t need to worry but like most companies they love to make
more. They have year after year not released a camera on the front of
their iTouch, iPhone, and now even more of a reason than ever the iPad.
Why not? The only answer is that they want people to buy version 2.0 of iPad…Version 4 of the iPhone… etc… They talk about how great the iPad is surfing the web and being on the internet, and they’re taking away
the privilege they really started with their iChat video chat. It’s kinda
silly for them to waste that long, and the excuse of the internet being
too slow or any of that they have plenty of apps that do half the job.
Fring does video chats, but again they don’t put a camera on the front,
there is also QIK and USTREAM which are also live streaming video that
could easily be used for video chat, even if it wasn’t the clearest thing
in the world, you can see the person, and it would put them ahead of the
Not only is the iPad WiFi ($500-$992.00) (with all of the little gadgets that
you know you will get) iPad 3g ($629-$1,221.) You’re paying close to 1,000$ by the end of the day and you still have to have a computer? They could
have easily made the iPad its own full computer, such as a netbook but they
choose to make it so you have to have a computer. And lets face it the
people that buy Apple stuff have a Mac. I don’t know 1 person that
bought an iPad that didn’t have a Mac or 3 different Spple products. So if you don’t have a Mac and you walk in wanting the best because you don’t want to buy a new computer in a while you get a Mac Pro, costing close to $3,000 and your in a spending mood and then they start convincing you oh for $500 you can get a nice portable iPad that you can take on the go to do your emails… have over 120,000 apps… yatta yatta yatta there is absolutely no way you will turn that offer down right? With there happy smile taking your money away… The iPad could be something so amazing! You spend 1,000$ the price of there low end MacBook and you don’t get a Camera, Printing feature and features that a computer should have! It really is just a huge iPod Touch. It would be nice if it was a full featured Snow Leopard that would run App Store Apps rather than only running apps. It can
easily do that as well. Just as a comparison the Nexus One, pretty much
1 fourth the size of the iPad, Qualcomm QSD 8250 Snapdragon 1Ghz
Processor, 512MB RAM, and the iPad: A4 runs at 1GHz and 256 mb of ram!
The iPad is so much bigger and it is not any better and in some clases
someways worst specs then the Nexus One by Google. It doesn’t make
sense! Why would they do that? Money? Probably, if they came out with a
3GHz 4gig ram iPad (which I wouldn’t be surprised, could be out by now)
with a camera, OLED screen, they would make no money in the future.
Apple is so good at making 3 versions of the same product and the person
that bought version 1 buys version 3, and the person that buy version 2
buys version 3, and the person that buys version 3 buys every accessory
possible. It just there little way of maximizing there profit. They
don’t come out with the best thing they could so they can make version
2.. 3.. of the iPad. They know what the problem of the device is before
they release it and they make sure it’s just good enough to sell perfectly.
The iPad does everything except the things they know it should do.
iWork Really? not only are you spending 1000$ on an iPad with no 10$
card to iTunes store or iWork for free but you end up spending 10$ per
app of there iWork apps, Pages, Keynote, Numbers. Every dollar they can
juice out of you they will. I mean yah the new Pages for the iPad looks
amazing so does the Keynote (and I don’t use Numbers but it looks nice.)
They make points directly relating to how college kids can use it and of
course there going to get Pages, and so everyone on an iPad is going to
get Pages, thats 10xNumber of iPads sold (350,000 iPad sold since April 9th) plus maybe even 30$ depending on the person. When you walk into an Apple store and look at the iPad and how they treat you with how is your day, look at our shiny shit, really think, do you really need this? or is it just pretty and yah you guess yal use it now since you have it. Apple makes you believe that this is what you need to be cool, cutting edge, modern. Its a false sense of being powerful when in fact Apple owns you in the long run.
The first thing I saw from the iPad was just the gaps from the Apps.
They literally just put the iPhone os on it, and changed background.
Sure the apps work on a bigger screen but really those apps are so far
apart! I don’t need a thumb space between each one of the apps. If
people were fine with big fingers on the iphone there isn’t a point to
have such big gaps? So maybe its to make it look like each app is
special, and you have more. Sure they could fit like 6 by 6 and have a 6
app dock but they aren’t going to do that.
As a final conclusion. They just pay millions if not billions of
dollars paying people to figure out every little nick, trend, best time
to do everything. Apple knows what they are doing. And to be honest I’m
going to wait in line for the iPhone 4G and then in another year get the
new iPhone 4G 2.0 with all of the problem fixed that they knew they the iPhone 4G
1.0 had before they even released it. Even after how much I hate how
Apple works, what they make is unique and its something to look at and
show off to your friends, even though everyone has a Mac now, it a
pretty computer that has style and a nice UI. And I applaud Apple for
what they are and what they make. But I wish they would be less greedy
and release the TOP NOTCH thing rather then the things that came out a
year ago put a nice metal case on them and sell it with there logo.
