Discussion in 'iPad' started by flyguy206, Feb 21, 2010.
Does anyone have any idea why they are not talking about the ipad?
What would like them to say that hasn't already been said?
Not talking? Are you serious?
Well, No official release date, no TV ads, no insight on software ( why is there stuff missing on it compared to iPhone or iPod Touch), Etc......
It's Apple's way of marketing. I'd say it's quite effective.
Perhaps, they would once the fcc gives the "green light"!
Is there a way to find out if they have? besides waiting on apple to say so
Its not going to happen, the Ipad is part of a complex series of jokes for a reality TV show called "Jobs in Charge"
It's going to re-cast Scott Baio as Steve Jobs.
They had huge hype leading up to the official announcement, and huge coverage after the announcement. Certainly things may be fading from the high, but no point in Apple playing more marketing/hype cards until they really need to. They'll get another "free" blast from the media next month at release. Maximize your efforts. Ride the current wave as long as possible. [Insert lots of other metaphors here].
Because WE are, and that's enough for now.
What would you like them to say?
The entire industry, publishers, developers, consumers have been talking about it.
Apple has a great product. It speaks for itself.
Because they are too busy talking about the discovery that the internet is really a series of tubes?
You can search here.
Work for the FCC or work for Apple?
That can all wait until the day when people actually can buy one. These kinds of marketing messages are much more effective when they're delivered all at once, instead of in dribs and drabs. It's much better to pique interest when people can actually open their checkbook.
They did the launch event because they had to make the iPad public anyway for a variety of practical and logistical reasons. But, I doubt we'll see much promotion until the iPads are shipping.
I'm sure if they said or did anything more before the ipad was available to purchase it would seem like overkill.
The funny thing is people claiming that apple has overhyped it.
Lol well they've plastered their home page with it, they've made a video about it and had a conference about it... What else did you expect?
I just want some official pricing. It's taking forever.
Ummmm.... that's also been done. If by "taking forever" you mean it took to the end of Jobs' speech, then yes.
No official prices have been released. Only pricing for the US is out.
Does any other pricing matter?
Well, personally I don't give a rat's what things cost in the US.
Possibly to the 5.7Billion people who don't live in the US and aren't ignorant.
It's one thing to be politically correct, it's another thing to be annoying. This is annoying. By the way, I don't think many of those 5.7 billion people are going to have the resources or desire to buy an iPad. How many do you think they will be able to sell in Papa New Guinea?
