Apple offers to refund Australians who think they have been misled by the new iPad's 4G signage

An olive branch has been extended by Apple's lawyers, who will set up disclaimers in the stores, including third party ones, and begin sending emails to customers offering a refund to those who think they were affected to purchase by the 4G logo and the promise for LTE connectivity...

Hot iPad, Strange Logo, misleading marketing, hot macbook air, strange iPad name. Is a sign that Apple is going downhill.
Moreover new competition is coming this october with Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.

You forgot iPhone 4S battery woes
iPhone 4 antennagate
iPhone 4 back cover glass shattering
iPhone 3GS overheating
iPhone 3G iOS 4.0 unusability
Macbook Battery hack
etc etc etc
People tend to forget all that. They shouldn't.

Putting '4g'on the 4th generation iphone worked before for apple sales wise despite how massively misleading it was so they tried their tactics here again,guess some Australian ifans were more aware!
But if this was used as a precedent then couldn't apple be tackled for many statements to customer which aren't accurate?!

See if you were honest from the get go & NOT try to deliberately misinform the public, you would not be doing this Apple.
Not all people are as stupid or i$heepish as you think!

Guess some iFans can't read the box or haven't watch the press conference. it's the NEW IPAD 4G. NEW IPAD 4G LTE is only for the U.S. version people. At least Apple offers them their refund

Not everyone read the expiry date on products nor bother to read what's on the box due to xcitment, so if apple advertisd this as LTE+4G, they kno how apple fans think, so they knew what they were doing, and they know no one will return the device.
And now acting all cool n caring, nice marketing strategy. Now it all makes sense.
This is opinion and im entitled to it, so don't hate, unless if i stroke a nerve, lol
Apple is Disappointing me day by day, its quite embarrassing.
