New Apple iPad ad says, "We'll Always"
In fact, while we will continue to do the same things that we have always done, the way we do them will be never be the same thanks to Apple's iconic tablet. Those who have added a tablet to their collection of mobile electronics would probably agree, and while the ad below is for the Apple iPad 2, how about some comments from tablet owners about how the device has made life easier for them.

Yes apple. You will always suck.

Yes, because Apple making billions of dollars in sales of the far superior iPhone and iPad with iOS means they suck while Android phones are scrambling around with inconsistent updates and crappy, buggy interfaces.

No.. but because I have come to realize that the growth of Apple means the end for free software, innovation, open source projects, non-proprietary hardware, and everything else that the internet community stands for - and Apple opposes.
You will continue to pay for insanely overpriced and underpowered products, and even for services which should be free, like Internet news, magazines, and such - and later on - social networking and any other service Apple will think of that they could charge $$$ for.
Apple IS the new Microsoft. But they too shall learn. Just like Microsoft's dominance in the 90's was broken via such things as Firefox, Google, Linux, OpenOffice and many others, who in turn offered their services for free.
You're probably too ignorant or too young to remember what it was to use IE6 for full 5 years.

This is why americans don't get nice things. All we care about is what we get on paper and not about buying a quality product. The iPhone isn't overpriced its extremely well made and is beautiful. You pay for quality.

Typical american attitude. Have fun getting a super sized meal at mcdonalds.

Do you realize that Apple participates in a lot of open source stuff as well, such as webkit browser, mp4, facetime is something they opened up to everyone. You're a brainwashed idiot.
By the way Microsofts dominance is not broken. 90% of PC users use microsoft.

No, that only means there's a far too large mass of ignorant idiots who can be fooled by whatever Jobs says/does.

I can't believe I just watched that video. That is the weirdest guy i have ever seen. He is wearing sunglasses indoors first off and is b.i.t.c.h.i.n.g about the stupidest things. Go cry to someone else.

*shrug* When I have the money, the XOOM or its successor will be the one for me.
10. biophone (Posts: 1877; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
The xoom and iPad are both great tablets. However you already assuming the next xoom is better then the next iPad when they both haven't come out yet. You also state you will buy the xoom over any other android. Dude why are you already deciding when you have the money which tablet you will buy. Why not wait till you have the money and see then. I understand you never by an apple product no matter how good it is but why not consider other androids is what i don't get.

Brand loyalty. Just like the people who don't like to get anything but Apple because of their quality, I haven't yet had a bad experience with Motorola. I've had three of their phones so far and I'm getting a fourth, probably as soon as Friday. I don't expect anyone to agree with or respect my choice; I just don't like to quit on a company that's given me good experiences and is trying so hard right now not to go under.

Wait so you bash Apple users for having brand loyalty and yet you will buy a Motorola product regardless if there are better tablets on the market? Hypocrite much??
You're such a douche it's hard to comprehend.

holy s**t taco i was thinking the same s**t, i know ive been on you since i joined but you have a legit point. sorry sniggly he actually made sense bro.
29. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
I make a lot of legit points. I have no problems with android, but I'm sick of these fandroid trolls on every Apple article. Sure I bash them back, but it's only in reciprocation to what they do all day.
30. Sniggly (Posts: 6196; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Um... no, I don't bash people for being loyal to Apple as a brand. I think it's pitiable that they ignore the monstrous things Apple does as a company, but I'm okay with them continuing to buy Apple products.
So yeah, game over. Continue? 20...19...18...
32. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
Apple doesn't do any "monstrous things" you're a tool. And you contantly bash Apple users incdluding this post as you called them 'pitiable" pitiful?
33. Sniggly (Posts: 6196; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
But I wasn't bashing them. Bashing them is calling all Apple users jerks or sheep, which I usually don't do.
And Taco, yes, Apple does some pretty damn bad things to people. Sure, it was hyperbolic to say their practices are monstrous, buying reserve poetic license here.

Perhaps you should spend your time getting work instead of trolling articles?
20. Sniggly (Posts: 6196; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Perhaps you should pay attention. I already have a job, and I'm starting a better job in a week. And I'm going back to college.
Yeah, Miz. You're about to get what you want: less of me here.
25. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
That would be nice, but I'd expect you'll drop out soon and be righ back on here posting.
2nd that Miz this guy needs a job.

Something irks me about someone who would get on a forum or blog website such as this and bash someone else's personal life. Just saying.
31. Sniggly (Posts: 6196; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Jesus, Taco. I've been relatively nice to you today. Are you really that bitter that you're going to be an asshole just because?
18. iPoop (Posts: 58; Member since: 21 Jul 2011)
i suggest the transformer, it's cheaper AND better than the zoom from personal experience

Its so funny to see how people are so one sided when it comes to Apple/Android. Both are awsome operating system in there own right. I have an Android phone because thats what I like to have as a personal phone, BUT my Android phone has a hotspot that gives internet goodness on my Ipad! (Best of both worlds)
9. biophone (Posts: 1877; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
Hey scorpio I have that on my iPhone as well. They are both great but people are stupid and don't realize that.
12. biophone (Posts: 1877; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
Apple always makes great products and has the best marketing to show off some really cool stuff. Great job on another excellent commercial. That iPad truly is a remarkable tablet that continues to lead and innovate.
21. adin99 (Posts: 1; Member since: 25 Jul 2011)
and by that you mean its at the tail of the performance of other tablets.
26. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
Not what consumers are saying on satisfaction surveys or with their wallets. Only thing that is tail end is androids half baked copy cat OS.
16. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 5167; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
Yes Apple - we always sue HTC/SAMSUNG for copying our Iphone products.
17. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 5167; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
Thats what they meant by saying we always sue

Ipad 2 just does everything I want it to do except probably power analysis simulations.
