  1. Apple's iPad broke the ground for the tablet market space but it has failed to keep up with industry trends in the software space that is making the tablet feel antiquated.

    iOS for iPad could use some work, but it will take time. I am in no rush because the software is at least functional and there are plenty of third party apps that can cover your needs until a better dedicated one is released.

    The ecosystem is good, and the product quality is outstanding. It doesn't take more than that to make good sales, and Apple knows how to pitch their products, unlike Samsung, one of the worst product-pitching companies, their product presentations by some Korean guy who can't even speak good English are ridiculous and awfully boring.

    Yeah, if it's not broke, don't fix it.

    To be fair though, Apple product presentations are pretentious and nauseating.

    This article is clearly written by someone from seattle...

    the iPad is doing just fine right now. I guarantee iOS will see some new innovations in the next couple years to give you multiple apps on screen simultaneously. I actually like how you only get one app per time. Use push notifications and badges to move from app to app if you're really that die-hard
  6. I remember Samsung's grand unveiling for the Galaxy S4 (or was it S3?). It was the absolute worst unveiling I had ever seen, bar none, it was embarrassing, campy and groan worthy. I'm sure the phone itself is excellent but seeing that launch made me hate it. I hope Samsung fired whoever came up with the idea for that launch. Here's to a better S5 launch, *crosses fingers*.

    It's a (dated) phone OS on a 9.7inch tablet. Go figure.
  8. Apple had the best hardware? Wtf I don't think so. Not even by a longshot. Apple hasn't done much with the ipad, ipod or iphones since they were co-invented by Sony(ipad) and made by Samsung(most apple products). They don't even use sd card storage or use usb support like Android devices can. Even Microsoft has that.
    Samsung and Amazon have devices that can and do rival Apples A7 chip. Apple charges a lot for a device that can't even expand it's memory or use usb. That's just insane in todays technology world.

    Apple is good but pricey, however it's not the best out there. Plenty of numbers out there that Android devices are either getting better or simply are better.

  9. If Apple rivals would take all the money they spend on publishing articles like this one, and spend them on top class professionals to develop their hardware and software, they could actually compete with Apple. Right now all they can do is bark at it.
