Thread: Meet the New 1-Pound iPad Air

Yawn. No new features, just more horsepower to compensate for the bloatware called iOS 7. My iPad 3 was great until I "updated" to 7. It now enjoys stiction, erratic delays, and a general Windows feel in its interactive behavior.

Good thing apple is not geared for selling to most of THESE people. I was very impressed by the iPhone 5, and equally impressed with the 5S. 64 bit architecture and fingerprint scanner? M3 chip? All stuffed into the 5s tiny chassis? What does it take to impress people?

All i read now on MMi is b1tching, whining, moaning, and complaining nowadays. Wah!

Maybe Apple is calling it the iPad Air because they will offer an iPad Pro in the future?? Maybe the Pro will be a desktop tablet? I think its time to wow us again...that would wow me.

Yawn. Another boring release definitely most disappointing year yet from apple. As all these other companies release some halfway decent things apple didn't release 1 new thing this year. Great a new processor... so what if safari opens .007 seconds faster. In everyday life you prob would never tell the difference between an iPhone 5 and 5s.
First few releases of iPhones and iPads each upgrade was a substantial upgrade in power and you noticed such a difference. But technology is already so fast that .0007 doesn't make a difference in real world experience.
I for one have upgraded my phone each year up till the 5. I just cant justify this year to upgrade to iPhone 5s for the finger print lock. Maybe I would do the upgrade if I was in high school but at this point in my life its just not that cool. Def doesn't wow me and I have yet to find anyone who has upgraded to a 5s. Everyone ive talked to about upgrading asks "Whats the difference" (Non techie People btw)
Same goes for this iPad! come on apple even if they released a new accessory like the surface where the keyboard is built in the cover that would of even added more of a wow factor. But basically same iPad as last year just weighs less. I def would not upgrade my iPad to get a lighter one lol.
Also Apples direction of iPad mini & Price going up? HaHa I think they went the wrong way.
Also Where is our Apple TV.. Did they forget about it. Apparently so. No updates no nothing just left it in the cold.

toymachine, what the hell do you want? iPhone 5S is pretty damn awesome. OS X 10.9 Mavericks is FREE. iLife is FREE. iWork is FREE. On the software side, there are ton of new features. iPad Air is lighter and physically smaller. iPad mini now has Retina Display. Mac Pro is a fncking BEAST.
What halfway decent things did others release? Oh, you mean that half-baked Samsung Gear?? lol. I guess you're just satisfied with half-baked stuff.

I don't know why so many people are not impressed with apple's new products. The iPad air is a great machine! The iPhone 5S is a beast of a phone! I'm excited about the M3 chip. I have a 5, so I'll get the 6 next year.
And I love how some use the word "easy" to describe a way to fool the fingerprint scanner... Most require thousands of dollars in equipment, access to a lab with all sorts of nasty chemicals... You know, the sort of thing a thug off the street obviously has... Oh, and one more thing... A flawless high resolution photo of the owners fingerprint...
....And people STILL aren't impressed... I think they really just get tired of apple being successful and want them to fail.
64 bit processor... Now Samsung is going to make one too... Yeah, Apple is taking wrong moves...
