I really don't think Steve Jobs would have let this happen, In the past we have heard jobs ranting that it has to be this or that and don't show me until you get it done! He would have pushed people hard to get what HE wanted, and that was one of the many special things he was able to do. Now sure whats 50 grams? well it's 10 US nickels, and weight wise it may not make a difference to many, but in the Apple mystique it's very important (I Think). It's things like this that made apple so special, it was always better with the same or less weight or always thinner or something. I think with Steve around it would have been the same weight, maybe thicker and he would have made sure to emphasize it's an amazing trade off just a credit card thicker for twice the resolution. Don't get me wrong..I think the new iPad looks great and I will be upgraded, but I see a few bad signs that point to a more relaxed and easy going Apple, hope I'm wrong, because we need someone to PUSH for more than the best, sure that's great, but you can do better. that was always the Apple way, I see that slipping a little.
