Customers who purchased rush delivery for the iPad are now getting refunds
April 3rd is gearing up to be one day we're sure plenty of future Apple iPad owners are looking forward to, but its pretty clear by now that everyone that placed a pre-order will be getting it on that day. For those who purchased Apple's charge of $12 for a rush delivery on the product, they're getting a much needed refund seeing that it isn't no different from when everyone else will be getting the device. When you down at it, one must really think hard about Apple's reasoning for offering it in the first place when it clearly said that the delivery date was going to be the same no matter which option you choose. Maybe Apple just wanted to see if people weren't disregarding the fine print? Or maybe some people are just too infatuated with the product that they naturally would do anything it takes to get their iPad sooner than later? Fortunately, Apple is going in the correct direction by refunding those rush deliveries back to their customers.

Or maybe Jobs is the biggest crook on the planet. What's another $12 when you're already overpaying for the thing?

Because, absolutely no one in this economy pays for their products at factory-produced pricing. Honestly, be smart for a minute. All other cell phones are the same. A Nexus One for over 500 bucks? Exactly.

And you pay $200 more for an iphone with a crappier screen, low res camera, slower processor, and all that with no prospect of replacing the memory, battery, or CARRIER. We'll pause for a moment while you take your foot out of your mouth.

Why would anyone want to spend 600 bucks on a giant iPod Touch? Think their all a bunch of tools!

For those who are obsessed with Apple products and actually get religious with it, there are some that would. Jobs must of thought that having an iPod Touch or iPhone wasn't big enough to be seen in public so they made a billboard sized device that stands out and says "hey look at me I'm a douche bag!". I've said it before and I'll say it again, if it weren't for the Apple logo they wouldn't want it. Any other computer maker makes something like this and you won't see it in the news, but Apple makes it and it's like "oh wow!" What's next, iChurch? Where all the tools fellowship over the new Apple religion? You think I'm being mean, but look how many Apple logos on cars these days. Are they trying to match the Christian fish on cars? hmmm...

I'm going to be as non-biased as I can for every fanboy against Apple. I think its something innovative that Apple has created. By now, many people use apps to figure their day out, take notes, schedule appointments, find movie times, ect., without having to start a computer up, wait for it to load, login, go into a browser, and go through a bunch of links (not to say people are too lazy to do this, but everyone wants a faster way to access information on the internet, and using Apple's apps is one of the alternatives). I'm sure all you fanboys do the same with an Android phone, so don't see this as only applying to iPhone users. Apple has the biggest and best App store available currently. No matter who wants to disagree with it, its true and the facts prove it so. So, why not come out with a giant iPhone or iPod Touch? People like the apps and they are willing to purchase this than to use a netbook. I had a netbook, and frankly, I didn't like it since they don't have enough memory, ram, and processing speed to keep up with a same priced notebook. I know netbooks are for portability, but why not let an iPad have a chance as well? An iPad will simplify things to miniature applications that can get you to what you want. It might not be for everyone, but just because people don't have your taste and prefer to buy it doesn't mean that Apple is turning into a "religion". It's just not for you and instead for others. You say if it didn't have an Apple logo, it wouldn't sell. Well DUH. If it had a Google logo, like a Google Chrome Tablet, many of you would probably be one of the first people to buy it, just like iPad consumers. I will agree, Jobs is a douchebag, but hey, place yourself in his shoes. He can talk all the crap he wants, but who's gonna lead over his company? We just hope someone will, but as for facing reality again, its not gonna happen soon. I actually have used Apple products vs. alternatives to Apple products (like Microsoft PC's, netbooks, currently own and use an Android phone). I will say PC vs. Mac, right now, Macs win because they boot faster, process faster, and gets basic tasks done faster (FACT). I grew on a PC and have owned a macbook pro for less than a year and can already conclude this. I use an iPod, but then again, we all grew up on them. They have been able to separate themselves from "MP3"s and known as an individual type. iPhones obviously started the revolution of smartphone sales, so we can all give them credit on this. All these things are just facts guys. Its not made up fanboy crap. It's just how our history timeline in technology (mostly mobile) has affected the way we use things, and so far, it seems logical to say that Apple has made a huge impact. Saying people follow a "Apple religion" is ridiculous. So I'm guessing all of you are under "Google religion", always googling things, gmail, photo search, shopping, Android, maps, picasa, ect.? Or "Microsoft religion", probably reading this on a PC running Windows, using Microsoft Office products, ect.? I just don't understand why people have so much hate for Apple products. Its not like they magically came into business and brainwashed everyone. People like their products over many of the alternatives right now, so why not just give them credit?
