People stuck with "the old iPad" tweet all about it
posted by Nick T. / Mar 08, 2012, 3:21 AM
So, the new iPad got announced yesterday, and every geek in the world knew that it was coming. After all, the blogosphere did a great job at spreading the word weeks in advance. However, it appears that there were plenty of people who purchased the iPad 2 anyway as they were unaware of the new iPad's anticipated arrival. And what better way for them to express their frustration than tweeting all about it?
Below we have a selection of tweets by those poor souls who are now stuck with "the old iPad". Some bought an iPad 2 about a week prior to the new model's announcement, while other were unlucky enough to get one the very day before yesterday's announcement. Now, that iPad 2 that they own is $100 cheaper, while the new model is packed with a lot more bells and whistles than its predecessor.
Has anyone of you been in a similar scenario? If so, feel free to share your story with us by dropping a comment below.

Typical Apple fanboys. Never ever ready for the future they just stick with what they have and think it is gods gift to earth.

you see Apple fans think life is really simple. It is all about owning an I pad or an i phone or maybe both if the Isheeep disease is at the incurable stage. The free and beautiful android world is just not visible to them

LOL this is hilarious. and i think it's their fault not Apple's (not a apple fanboy i swear). i mean a little bit of reasearch before buying the ipad would've really helped.

you know why think this is hilarious? because i won't buy an apple product and when i buy any android product and when i do i choose one wisely, so that i can wait until i have the resources to get the latest&greatest

Those people who bought the iPad 2 recently are just complete idiots. They knew it was the time again win the new iPad was going to be announced, they were just too impatient and stupid.

yeah, man.. completely agree with you.. apple fans will not stay 24/7 and waste their entire life looking at sites like this like they have nothing to do.. they have something else to do, right? they need to be lining up in front of the apple store.. how can they waste time here? it's like the modern days Woodstock..

Did I mention anything about Apple fans trolling this site just to find out about the next iPad? No, I didn't. The ones who recently bought the iPad 2 should've expected the next iPad to be released around this time, considering that the past two iPads were announced around this timeframe. So not trolling on this site should be an excuse for not knowing about the next iPad being released right after they bought it. And besides, if they want to make a big deal about it just return the damn thing or sell it on eBay.

If they just bought them yesterday or a few weeks ago....why don't they just return them? Most store do have return policies.

ya i work at Best Buy Mobile and we had people come in and buy the iPhone 4 right before the 4S came out. Everyone and their sister who bought the 4 from us within 30 days came back and exchanged it for the 4S. No restocking fee or anything, just a swap. so, do the same and trade the iPad 2 in for the next best thing. The transformer prime.
