The invitation-only Apple Media Event is now over.

I haven't seen such a massive step forward since Windows '98 transitioned to Windows 2000.

"The New iPad" is the new name....wow.

I wouldn't bother with iPad 2 since you can get the wifi "The New iPad" for $100 more.



Bless

I don't understand why so many people are upset over the new iPad's name. I guess this just goes to show that some people buy Apple products based on its name.

Horrible name. Will still fly off the shelves, though.

The naming strategy seems like a mistake to me. I understand just simplifying the products to "iPad" and "iPhone" except they're keeping the old iPad 2 around. Isn't that going to be confusing if you don't have an easy name to qualify the "new iPad" with?

iOS for the most part doesn't run multiple apps so your argument has no place here. On top of that multiple cores very much benefit single apps as long as there is any amount of threading going on be it GCD based or something else.

128 GB is a big deal if you need it. Frankly with everything else that was in this update I didn't expect it at all, but for people that needed it i can understand the disappointment.


did we have some sour grapes today?
Nope...I'm waiting to buy it. Others on here complaining have sour grapes up a certain place in their anatomy.

It's a great release and update. Too many on here expect rumors that never were promised.

3rd Generation iPad basically. Just how iPods are named.

"New iPad", huh? Steve Jobs is rising from the dead to strangle Tim Cook for this amazing, mindblowing product name.

I don’t know if all the rumors and leaks are actually a good thing. They take most of the surprises out of these events. We pretty much got what we expected. Of course, if I didn’t want spoilers, I shouldn’t visit a “rumors” site.

I’m more excited about the “more good things to come in 2012” that was mentioned at the end. I’m itching for exciting desktop updates.
