iPad Air 2 gets a big, flashy "breaking news" banner on the front page but Android freaking 5.0 and Nexus 6/9 doesn't? Looks fair.

Google releases a flagship tablet with high-end specs, and no one bats an eye. Apple releases a new iPad with just a thinner design, and everybody loses their minds. Apple Arena seems more legit as a name of this site. Seriously, What's new in this iPad?

Samsung Galaxy S tab blows this thing out of the water. Thinner so what, the super amoled quad hd display is the best screen on the planet and 3 gig of ram, enough said!

Some is comical, LMFAO... CPU 12x faster.. (Than the cost gen iPad over 4 years ago..).. GPU over 180x faster (then the original iPad over 4 years ago) Isn't it funny how no other company second constantly compares there newest flagship to their entry product into the market.. Like comparing the newest iphone6+ against the first iPhone 2007... 7 years ago. That right there is straight up sad.. LoL they won't compare against the android market ( I'll give you a hint why,... They'd get laughed out of the building)
