LOL. That's because in Apple's defense (I know shock) they've done a pretty decent job making sure you never notice that. Hence the reason they didn't/don't let you run multiple apps at the same time on it and flash is gone from it. And when I have seen someone actually put productivity software on it like they show in the commercials it was actually pretty slow. Come to think of it maybe that is the reason Apple is doing this; to prevent people from accessing programs that the ifad would be crushed under.
@lordikon: I understand what you're saying. Like MS releasing 2007 then 2010 which is just a different GUI with minor additions to features and charging like it's a brand new thing. Now I'm not saying they haven't made big changes. Just they
But I'm getting to the point where I see very little software that is worth paying for that isn't free. I have nothing against charging the sheeple of the world for their ignorance as that's just the free market but to have the audacity to try and control everyone invites defiance while showing that these companies realize they're either at the limit of their hardware or they can't actually make software that's competitive themselves. They would make more money as I've stated before pushing new improvements in software than they could hope to with these pointless control tactics. If they made programs that were better, faster, and easier that allowed user to do things no other software out could then they wouldn't bother with this. So I thinks it's rather obvious that from their actions they don't have faith in
A) their hardware
B) their ability to make competitive software.
Because of this I will never buy a PS3 at it's current price or an ifad. And I'm not simply an Apple hater because I'm also talking about the android tablet makers and how they also are following this same pattern.
I swear they need to teach in business classes that the harder you press and squeeze customers the more you lose compared to what you gain. /end rant
