Do a search and see the ridiculous things people are saying how they're glad their iPhone5 doesn't have Samsung parts.

Lighter...

Hey everyone,

Damn folks... lighter, thinner, a gram here and a millimeter there.

I read comments about the IPad being too heavy and the IPhone is too big. Heavy... you’re ******** me. Oh and make sure it has storage for the thousands of songs, movies and photos that are on file.

Complaints about wanting a thinner and lighter computer but wanting the ability to open it and add Ram, drives etc.

Thousand will wait in line to get the newest betterer product and six months late queue up again for the next newer betterer model.

We march in step to buy an outstanding product that Apple evolves with little or no input from loyal users and we continue to pay for the award winning boxes and the adapters we need to plug in a peripheral.

I have written before to this site and I will say it again. I am a long-time and loyal Apple user; it is a fine product but given that Apple tells us what we can and cannot do with our computer (soldered Ram, up-grade path etc.) the prices are getting outrageous.

It is likely I will never buy a new Apple again. I will purchase a gently used computer that will allow me to use my thousands of dollars in existing software without having to up-grade software or use an OS that has dozens of features I will never use.

I like this site… As an Apple user and supporter I like that I can piss and moan about the product we all use and hope that someone from Apple is reading what is written.

Take care,

Kevin

As for iPads, Kevin, they were never meant to be opened for upgrading, be it RAM or storage. In my opinion, your rant suits the MacBook Pro section better.

Hi DesertEagle,

You make a good point. I believe part of the error was how I wrote the posting.
I'm also still uncertain about how to post.

Take care,

Kevin

Oh, it was very well-written, and with several valid points. The way I see it, there's nothing wrong with how you wrote it, just the wrong sub forum. I like the posting in itself, really.

Do you want me to go on?
Ah, I see, that's not what I thought you meant. I'd say none of those are new features, they're all old tech (or personal opinions, in a couple of cases) that Apple clearly could have included but decided not to. I figured people asking for new features meant something actually new. It's perfectly understandable to want some of that stuff, but that's not lack of innovation on Apple's part, it's a conscious decision to not include them (and indeed, it's not innovation on the part of manufacturers who do include them, it's just a different decision).

Not this one:



Nowadays, that old-school aspect ratio is used by the iPad almost exclusively.

I donīt perceive any delay when switching apps on an iPad 3. Also, I rather trust a video on Youtube from a reviewer that shows me a comparison between an iPad 3 and an iPad 4, instead of someone who seems to believe anything that comes out of the marketing department of a company. Have fun with your iPad 4 and keep saying itīs the best thing you ever bought until you fall for another product that is just barely better. But donīt expect it to come true, just because you bought it.
