I read so much about the 3rd gen. iPad being the "red-headed step child" and a lot of nonsense about it being inferior to the 4. Now I'm not knocking the 4th gen at all, obviously is has a boost in CPU speed yadda yadda...oh, forgot to mention the lightning connector, which means NOTHING, besides your older sync cables have been cannibalized. Is everyone of the belief that once something newer comes out, our current devices are rendered useless? It cracks me up how much this site has changed since I first began reading it regularly. Used to have some great informative posts, not a bunch of whining about what someone else thinks about your device while you're walking down the street. Anyway...enough of my rant. Kids are in bed napping and I'm drinking a nice cold brew waiting on my wife's and my new 5c's to be delivered here shortly.
