New Ipad review

March 10, 2012 Leave a comment
Its New! Its faster! It is dynamic HD1080p!

Not that exciting to you?

Apple is starting to sound like other CE platform that’s on its last legs anyone remember,  8 track,Walkman, Beta-Max,VHS Laser disk..?  

Anyway lets break it down:

1) Form factor is sleek and stylish.
2) New 5X processor that lets me do the same stuff, faster.
3) New 4g support.
4) Higher resolution pixel screen.

WiFi Verse 4g

 

The option of wireless platforms is a typical apple offering, but $250 for the privilege of 4g is price gouging at best, since Android devices that have 4g sell for less than $100.

That said the buffet of features will always get the person with eyes bigger than their stomach.  So order away. For those who have a personal task in mind get the Wifi is great for personal use if your always in reach of a hot spot.

The business user should get the 4g because they are on the  move all the time but make sure you have an unlimited package. These devices have a lot to say online, they will eat up the bandwidth just running apps without your help.
With AT&T new announcement of limited bandwidth, I would consider the 4g, this is something that any other carrier controlled data network  can  do and it will affect your apps.

Same old Bell

I worked for and organization that created the telecom standard. The bell system. The day I was hired I was told that Ma Bell had 3 basic rules.

Don’t remember her smoking 

1) Don’t steal her stuff
2) Don’t screw up your job
3) Don’t mess with her women

and she would give you a rewarding job for life.
I worked there while the company was dissected around me, I even helped tape bathrooms and inventory her assets.
Back in those days most meetings were about enlarging capacity to ensure that customers (the whole country) had bandwidth .  It seems that after divestiture the company was more focused on its shareholders rather than its 80 million or so customer base.
2010 Reported Consolidated Revenue @ $124 billion so I find it hard to accept that 1999 dial up speeds are part of the 4g all you can eat, most expensive service in the world experience! 

The empire controls the data, you have been warned.

Singtel currently has 435 million clients, non are subject to the same unprofessional standards or service and performance.

The old Ma, while dominating and ruthless was honest and her clients services came first.

The sight of a forced slowdown is shameful at best, but more likely #2.
