I have a friend that has had both the iPad 1 and iPad 2 that does not plan on getting the iPad 3. I have known him for more than 20 years so I know enough about him to believe what he says. I'm not so sure I feel the same way about others. Are some people not getting the iPad 3 - or at least saying they aren't getting it - based on money? There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with not getting a new iPad3 or anything else because of finances. What I don't like is when people constantly justify it by saying there is no value in the upgrades. I am a perfect example of this with the iPhone 3GS and 4S. If I would have been able to get either device without jumping through some serious hoops, I would have had them. At the time, I didn't want to pay an arm and a leg to get them for full price. I could have afforded it, but I didn't want to...because of the money. I didn't spend any time at all saying that the upgrades weren't worth it and that is the reason I didn't get them. I didn't get them because I didn't want to pay twice the amount that others were paying. Period. I am saying all of this to say I think at least some people justify not getting the latest widget or gizmo because there is no value to the updated model when in fact it has to do with finances. I wish people didn't think this was necessary - there is nothing wrong with keeping your money in your pocket or not having the money to keep up with the Joneses.
