It's a bigger deal in the UK
I'm severely annoyed as I bought a 'new iPad' 64GB WiFi + 4G on launch day with the idea that it would run on 4G networks in the UK when they finally arrived. Turns out it never will which is why Apple had to change the name to WiFi + Cellular a couple of months later. NOW they release a new model that WILL run on a UK 4G network. Admittedly only EE's, but it will do what it says on the box which mine doesn't.

In other words, I'm switching away from Apple with my next tablet and phone. My iPhone 5 gets terrible battery life and I never have a use for my iPad. Their products are old, and Apple doesn't release products they think can withstand for a while, indicative that they don't innovate anymore. In the past I wanted shorter life cycles, but the fact I was burned on my first top of the line iPad means I won't be getting a second iPad at all.
I'm just in shock that Jobs really made this much of a difference. I never liked the guy but thought he was a brilliant advertiser. After seeing Apple fumble the ball on the iPhone 4S, mostly designed I think while Jobs was seeking treatment and had better things to do, and Siri going in the direction it went in, Apple Maps, and iPad 3 being thicker (Steve would've simply not allowed that product to go to market had he had control of Apple I think in January 2011...)
Its amazing to think that he was that important to the company and the bureaucrats (who I thought "got it" and were Apple's real reasons for success) failed miserably.

2, not even the A6X can fully decode 1080p H.264 purely in software. It just doesn't have the necessary horsepower.

Damn, I wish someone had told me the iPad 3 I use professionally ever day was sluggish... Here was me with the cock-eyed notion it was great!
Vista...not so great!
I vote the iPad 3 critic above for funniest post of the month! Congrats!
