iPad 3 owner here. The only change in my demeanour is due to waiting for my 1kg of sidamao coffee beans to be delivered, then equilibrium and contentment will be achieved.
So, the expected iPad Mini .........

3 pages till that Oatmeal comic is posted on an Apple thread.
STW is slipping...
Less dpi than a Kindle? Poor show
If you've just bought an iPad 3, in the last 2 weeks, return it and get a 4th gen. Although there's not am awful lot of difference. Faster processor and new connector. Can't say I find the 3 slow...
the bit about holding value / recycling is pretty spot on IME. I've just been reorganising the home computer setup. bought a decent spec'ed 3 yo iMac 24" for a decent wad of cash; but didn't /need/ the new model.
but in return, was able to flog my 7 year old Mac mini (the one with a 80GB HDD and G4 processor) for in excess of £100 which isn't bad I reckon - given my 4/5 yo Thinkpad was worth squat when I came to recycle it a little while back..
oh, and when time comes to flog the even older G4 PowerBook, hopeful that it will fetch at least /some/ cash
I ordered 2 in the end
1 for the lad's birthday, due to arrive next week and a 3g one for me, turning up in a few weeks time.
Looks like they've already gone through the initial batch of 16GB WiFi ones.
From that link ...
Steve Higgs said that when he bought his third-generation iPad on Sunday, Apple should have told him "that in 48 hours it would be outdated."
What a bizarre position to take
Apple fans are hilarious.
"The fanfare of Apple's announcement of two new iPads Tuesday quickly gave way to backlash from consumers who say the short life span of Apple products is becoming wearisome -- and expensive"
Twits. Nobody's forcing them to buy anything.
"Many were irked that they had just dropped $500 on what they thought was a cutting-edge tablet, only to watch it fall to near obsolescence Tuesday.
Boo. and Hoo.
"I bought a iPad 3 in August and definitely feel cheated," Phillip Briseno posted on this newspaper's Facebook page.
How absolutely awful for you.
backlash from consumers who say the short life span of Apple products is becoming wearisome
Please tell me they don't self-destruct when a new model comes out?
Congrats on buying iLad a low rez iPad Mini.
Just hope he isn't too gutted when it's updated in a few months to the Retina version.
Rule of thumb = NEVER buy a first generation Apple product.
P [waiting for retina...]
"only to watch it fall to near obsolescence Tuesday."
