So one day, I was doing community service, filing criminal records at some police station. I was working alongside a woman.
We started talking, and eventually, this conspired:
Her: "Guess what?"
Her: "I'M GETTING AN IPAD ^_^."
Me: "What for, you have an IPod touch in your hand... Right now."
Her: "I know, but my laptop broke, so I'm getting an IPad to replace it.:
Me: "You do know that an IPad isn't nearly as useful, or functional than a laptop right? It's pretty much just an oversized ITouch that loses most of it's functionality because of it's added size. For instance, do you know how sometimes when you're on your ITouch, and you go to a website, and a blue square appears?"
Me: "That's because mobile apple products don't support flash. So if you get, an IPad, you'll be cut-off from most of the media on the internet. You're better off just getting another laptop. Plus, there are many other things that a laptop can do, that an Ipad can't, not to mention that it's much more powerful."
Her: "Oh, thanks, I'll just get a laptop then."
I just saved this woman $800.
I mean did you hear her? She was going to buy an IPad to replace her laptop.
Apple takes advantage of the ignorance of people. Especially when it comes down to the IPad.
Atleast Droid Tablets have flash.... Atleast.
