    I wish i could say 'I'm surprised' but im not really. I was hoping the public would see sense with the lacklustre specification of this iPad but obviously not.

    Sorry, but does anyone actually check the validity of these claims by Apple.

    Do you ever get the impression you've said something enough? You hate Apple, we get it, at least come up with something original.

    Touché

    @Brewster: Yeah now you come to mention it, saying it's selling out everywhere is good marketing speak, encouraging people to rush out and buy one instead of considering it properly.

    Why? Not every phone released on the market is something original. I didn't hear you say that when the Note 2 was released, which by the way was an evolution of the Note, and nothing original. I didn't hear you say that when the S3 was released, which was just an evolution of the S2, with software improvements akin to the iphone 4S vs the 4. Not everything has to be original and new, all companies have groundwork laid and they build upon it, and Apple is no exception.

    Yes their attitude sucks, and their business practises suck, and yet they still sell large quantities of iTat which is obviously frustrating for you, but coming up with the same drivel every time they release something is just plain boring, and everyone's heard it before.

    I think the inference is that they are not making educated purchases, instead they are jumping on the newest bandwagon, which is pretty pathetic but typical of modern society.

    Personally i think windows 8 has a lot of that in it aswell. MS made a big public showcase about it and people lapped it up, rightly or wrongly, a lot of it probably isnt educated purchases.

    Besides we are comparing a £25 upgrade/£40 OS to a £260 piece of hardware. Oranges and Apples.

    More a reflection on how tech savvy most of us are.

    The point is Apple will use the money to try and stop others rather than improving there own products.

    Meanwhile we can buy better and cheaper products to which the money will help make future products better and cheaper.

    Re: News - Apple sells three million iPads over the weekend

    I'm wondering how many of these 3 million sales are actually people returning the 'old' new iPad for the new new iPad and aren't actually new sales at all?

    Also how come here they lump the the iPad mini and the new new iPad together in one sales figure when I don't recall them doing this before?

    Just a thought...

    Probably because they appreciate that people are unlikely to purchase both the iPad Mini and the iPad. By combining the purchases, it prevents a journalist from taking the iPad figures and suggesting that it has become less popular.
