I was half-expecting "the new new ipad" and "the old ipad mini" but ipad gen4 puts them back into the ipod category, which is what these silly things actually are

and also would it be called The New New iPad or The New iPad Fourth Genration ?
Oh man.. apple is playing catch up and with each new product they are actually falling behind the competition... yeah i know its gonna sell well but i can already feel that Its the begining of The End.

I'm truly shocked. Okay, so basically Apple just released an iPad 3 with newer cores and the new lightning adapter. THAT'S IT? Nothing else? No new features? I'm thinking Apple will stop bringing out something new in the market and keep continuing refreshing their older products. Comparing to this, iPhone 5 was a huge announcement.

at least they made it the same price.... if they made it more expensive id just get even more mad about apple's continuing money whoring

This has to be the surprise of today's event. I may buy this. Can't believe I'm saying I'll buy an Apple product.

Just before a barrage of thumbs down starts, the second and third sentences are intended as sarcasm.
12. No_Nonsense (Posts: 826; Member since: 17 Aug 2012)
Do you think I'll buy any Apple product until they stop overpricing them?
14. -box- (Posts: 3991; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
I couldn't say. I wouldn't buy anything apple not just on price, but on principle and performance as well.
the "/s" would have been a useful addition to your post (#3) if you're serious about being sarcastic

I pressed the comment button a bit early.

Because thumbs down on the internet really matter..

I can't say I will not buy an Apple product. I just bought a Macbook Pro about 2 months ago. I love their computers, but their tablets, phones and iOS are such crap compared to Android that I will never consider buying one.
87. No_Nonsense (Posts: 826; Member since: 17 Aug 2012)
Well, I'm considering buying the iMac, should be a good companion to the Windows PC and Nexus 7 (which I'll buy if its launched in India) and NL920.

ipod touch XXL.
Still a handicapped media player masquerading as something with capabilites like a computer, but in reality no where close.

$500 for a 16 GB handheld gaming .. thing? Talk about overpriced.

Now let's get ready for iPhonearena's barrage of Aplle "articles" to the exclusion of everything else...

Well, this means a really beastly gaming potential.. significant more power than in current consoles I dare to say..looking forward seeing how good can games look on this.
20. -box- (Posts: 3991; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
Power is pointless without storage and expandability. Why spend $500+ on something that can be done better on a PS Vita and PS3 instead if you want gaming? Or, if portable gaming is what you want, a Windows 8 tab would be a much better choice, as it can run legacy games and future ones as well, with much more going for them than anything for a glorified ipod

So less than a year later they already release a successor to their 3rd generation iPad which people flocked to... Good job, Apple. Tiny incremental upgrades are the way to go as long as you get your money huh?

So they want us to buy their tablet every 8 month?
