When I bought an ipad i thought that since it was more expensive, I could expect to upgrade within two to three years, as with any apple device. When the ipad 2 came out, I saw its minor improvements and was satisfied that I did not need to spend 500 dollars to upgrade. Now, half the games on the app store will not play on 1st generation ipads. Multitouch gestures are no longer supported in ios 5. This is ridiculous. The expect a 500 dollar device to last at least 2 years! I will never buy a ipad again, and the only thing I am hoping for right now is that there are either things done to remedy this situation or I will jailbreak my device and never give money to apple on and ipad again.
