The New iPad

Post by S7 Interseptor on Wed Mar 07, 2012 3:13 pm

Thoughts? Comments? (aside from the incredibly stupid name "The New iPad")

More specced out than I was expecting, that CPU/GPU is pretty sick. Retina and 4G were expected, as was the 1080p iSight. Other than that, not really anything else to it - not that that's a bad thing, iPads are still awesome products.

I'd really, really like one but I'm not sure what I'd actually use it for.

Yeah, it frankly looks great. Great much needed upgrades, even if most people already kind of knew what to expect. I'd love to get a new one (I am still rocking the first gen iPad) but I don't really have the extra cash right now. Plus my original iPad still works as good today as it did day 1 (an amazing testament to the product).

As for your question about how you would use it? I didn't really know myself until I bought one and started using it. The answer? Everything. I seriously use mine for everything. Day planner, bill management, bank monitoring, web surfing, e-mails, XBL messages, games, movies, netflix, books, comics, social media, weather forecast and that is just the every day activity. I carry it with me everywhere I go and I would hate to hate to live without it.

I have an iPhone and much prefer physical books. Not to mention I'm at a PC coding most of the day anyway.

I definitely could and would use it but justifying it is pretty hard.

I like it but honestly there's no incentive to give up my iPad just yet.
Mine works fine. I'm not the "I need it because it's new" guy so 2 years from now maybe. Still haven't pulled the trigger on an iPhone...and I ACTUALLY want that. Still rocking the Blackberry Curve Embarassed .

Still not enough to interest me. Let me know when this is a reality:

Yeah it looks and sounds pretty sweet but I just wouldn't use it enough to make it worth my money. I do most of what Zak listed on my iPhone and the things that I don't use my phone for I either don't use or I prefer the original item, like actual books.

I do like seeing the potential note taking and possible easy browsing of the internet while in class, but I still would side with a tablet that ran android over a iPad.

With the new iPhoto, and Adobe Touch, this is pretty much a laptop replacement for me. I mean being on a location shoot and having the ability to upload my RAW images to the iPad then edit them with pro style tools is great.

I use mine a lot at work--Noteshelf and a stylus helps me with note taking. Plus since the company I work at doesn't let me check my email from my personal devices, I just clip all my emails to a folder in Evernote, and have them on the go.

Epic, I hear ya on the books, but honestly reading a book on the iPad is great. Plus, the ability to highlight and write notes is amazing. I mostly use the Kindle app, which also allows me to import and read PDFs. Also, why don;t YOU create an app that will allow you to code on an iPad...you could make a killing, not to mention be recognized globally as England's baddest pimp.

Then there's all the other stuff Inteseptor mentioned.

Panzer i have never had as much respect for you as i do now lol. I agree with you though. Android has been doing some of the things apple is just now doing. If i would get a tablet i would go for the Transformer Prime.

I guess if the brightness was ok, then it would probably be good...

In regards to the coding app, I think if it was possible, it would've been done. iOS is pretty restrictive with stuff like that.

So with my purchase of the new iPad I have also purchased a nice "case" for it. One that I have seen reviews on and have had my eye on for when I was going to buy an iPad. It the Zoo Gue case Genius check it out http://www.zoogue.com/
Very nice Black leather case.

I also am picking up a smart cover to use when I do take my iPad out of the zoo gue case.
One other thing I bought was a bag that is really going to be for my camera as I have been needing to get back into using my camera more . I became a bit lazy because it has been so easy to snap photos with the iPhone. But the quality from my Nikon d70 is better than the iPhone. This backpack also has space for a small laptop or iPad and other accessories.
The bag is a lowe Pro fast pack 250
I bought it from Amazon and thanks to the up all night tourney saved $40.
http://www.amazon.com/Lowepro-Fastpack-250-Camera-Backpack/dp/B000YIYQ30/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1331330764&sr=8-1

The only thing I need now is for all this stuff to get to me. Besides purchasing a few apps I and may be a Griffin stylus with a gift card my spending should be done for a while.

You should get a keyboard attachment to put in front of that. Oh, and a latching mechanism to keep it closed... Wink

freakin\' FedEx attempts to delivery while at work and no one is home so I get an email saying that I missed the delivery and they won't redeliver till tomorrow. So I asked if they could drop it off at a FedEx place to pick it up today or redeliver today but no. Now I have to wait till tomorrow. So I told them to leave it at the FedEx location near me to pick up tomorrow. So pissed

Just got home and found the "door tag" they left and it says I can pick it up tonight between 7-7:30 pm
Well at least that is better than tomorrow. Still pissed. It's not like I am going to pre sign for a package and then have something happen to it or have it disappear and be out $600. Mad
