Does it make you mad when people say your iPad is just a giant iPod touch?

    It is a giant iPod touch, and that;s why I love it. Then counter with argument of what his computer can do that a bigger iPod touch can't (Flash notwithstanding)

    Who cares? They are missing out on a great product. It's like owning a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin or other sports car. Some people will say "it's just a car" but they are missing out a luxury vehicle. I feel sorry the most for the PC users. They are stuck with horrible software, hardware, quality, customer service and productivity. That's pretty much all a computer is made of and used for.

    Do you let people get under your skin that easily? Most people who say that never really used one. I hardly use my iPod touch, only for when I go biking and as a alarm clock that's it. My reason for getting the iPod was to do what I am doing on the iPad(which makes doing those things 1,000% easier)

    It is just a big iPod touch. Therein lies the genius of this product. I love being able to use the iOS touch interface on the larger screen of my iPad. So much less pinching, zooming and panning when working with more than a paragraph of text or larger images, etc.

    I'm just happy I have mine. Don't care what other people think about it. :)

    A list of responses:

    1) "look, an Australopithecus! Over there!"
    2) "I think you're getting a zit on your nose"
    3) "Listen! Do you smell something?"
    4) "What is the sound of one hand clapping?"
    5) "If you driving your canoe down a 4-lane highway, and all the wheels fell off, how many pancakes would it take to fix your sister's doghouse?"
    6) "What's the difference between a cow?"
    7) "What would you rather, ride the bus, or carry your lunch?"
    8) "Sshhh, I think it hears you.."
    9) "...and a pickup truck, hubba hubba hey"
    10) "The man, he look like a man."

    Point being, it makes no sense to get mad. I don't care if someone thinks my iPad is a roadkilled raccoon. It's mine.

    Just laugh and move on down the road.

    Next time just say this:

    "It's not a giant iPod Touch, the iPod Touch is a tiny iPad - you idiot!"

    That will shut them up... seriously, I have used this arguement and people don't know what to say! lol

    lol careful with that PC hardware quality comment...

    As for the giant ipod touch comment, I just say its uses the same interface technology which is the glass multitouch screen. The iPad version of the OS makes great use of the extra space.

    I do love that reply. :p

    I also like the other one I read on here: a swimming pool is just a giant bathtub, but I still want one.

    I just say "Your mom's a giant iPod touch!". Which actually does not go over too well. But then I tend to tell them that not only do they lack an iPad, but they are also lacking people skills and that I do not believe that their job has truly equipped them to succeed in life.

    They just cry.............while I play with my iPad. :cool:

    As others have said, it IS a giant iPod touch. Why does anyone even try and argue it isn't?

    No. Just answer them with "That's the point?"

    It doesn't bother me at all, it is a giant iPod touch. That's what's good about it.

    In the same way that the cinema is just a big TV :)

    I can understand people thinking that if they have not used one. TBH I don't think that's an insult - look how popular the iPod Touch is!
