  1. The Apple rumor mill seemingly doesn't take a break for the holidays as we are already hearing rumblings about what Cupertino's next generation iPad may have in store. Japanese blog Macotakara recently published a story saying the new iPad will...

    I don't blame them.If you could amass an icult following like them, you'd be doing the same. It's business.

    That's the product of good marketing lol. With that, you could put out half-assed products and still make a decent profit

    Just wish they would innovate more because iOS is getting stale and the latest installments are just minor increments.

    Then again they do have the iCult who would buy a $500 white colored rock if it had an Apple logo on it...

    Yeah Apple,whatever.
     
  8. Just because Apple comes out with new models every year doesn't mean you have to upgrade (duh). Of course they have to continue to innovate but at least they don't turn out models like Samsung etc. where you feel obsolete the moment you leave the store. Apple takes care of it's users much further back into the revision cycle than those other guys too. I know quite a few iPad 1 users who are still satisfied.

    It's a good habit to think a little before you post. Just saying.

    A new iPad! OMG, is it possible for a man to have a true orgasm? Because I'm sure I just had one....

    Never mind, even better, it was an "iGasm".

    Whoops, gotta jet now, hafta change my undies.

    So, your saying an iGasm is not a true orgasm even though it was better. lol

    Well Cliff, you know what I always say, "buy an iPad, you might save some poor Foxconn worker from having to jump out a dorm room window". Who cares if you have to fake it? Besides, true orgasms come from buying someone you love a big, tacky, gaudy, "conflict diamond"....;) And even at that, the recipient is the one that's pleasured, not the giver. "I'm happy, that you're happy! That's the story I'd stick to, if you know what's good for you.

    Additionally, you shouldn't ask questions you might not like the answer to. For example, "honey, which was better the rush from our loving last night, or the iGasm you had when you opened your Christmas iPad"? Asking s*** like that, will make what comes out of Pandora's box seem like Godiva Chocolates.
     
  14. Sounds like *someone* didn't get an iGasm in their fishnet yet again this year.

    I had to ask the worker at the mall what the difference was between the iPad 2, 3 and 4 because I honestly could not visually tell. Apparently, the 3 got 4g and the 4 has the lightning charger. Seeing as how the charger was listed as an innovative feature on the 5, what is the difference between this and the iPad 4? A small shrink in size? When the PS2 was re-released in a smaller version, at least it was cheaper...

    You made a statement, I was reading between the lines. Besides how would the answer be any different than watching porn? Both can be very graphic, especially where iGasms are concerned. ;)

    And you're not reading even the lines that are there.

    If I asked some sweetie which was better, her orgasm from our tryst the night before, or the iGasm she had when she saw her new toy, and she said the toy was better, I think my feelings would be hurt. That's what I meant, (and stated), in the post you're quoting. I would also be a question I wouldn't ask, since I might not like the answer.

    So, if that scenario wouldn't upset you, even a tiny bit, you're made of sterner stuff than me.

    With all that said, where you pulled porn out of, or read into the concept, I'm completely mystified.

    I read the words and I am choosing not to interpret them as filthy as they may have been intended to be. I try not to keep my mind in the gutter 24/7, so please forgive me if I don't completely play along.

    Yeah but......
    But you seem to have quite enjoyed playing along this far, did you not? LOL

    Rumor really? How about the obvious? LMAO, I stopped reading after that title.

    Yo Cap'n, you wouldn't have needed to change those undies if you'd worn an iPad (I think that's what they're for:confused:)
    The thinner, lighter ones in the title are probably less absorbent....

    And yet, you still took the typing time to boor us with those observations.....

    So, does this mean that from the demeanor of my posts, everyone can tell those days when I'm feeling, "somewhat less than fresh"? :eek:

    In any event, my "iTechnological" prediction for 2013 and beyond is this; given Apple's penchant for tracking owners of its product, and the collateral development of flexible displays, Apple will introduce a tablet and panty combo, "The iChastity", much to the glee of overprotective, obsessive compulsive parents everywhere....!

    Remember, those under the age of majority have no civil rights to violate, and concomitantly, Apple will begin a series of predatory lawsuits against the manufacturers of feminine hygiene napkins.

    No longer content with having to settle for figuratively having their corporate "iNose" up peoples a**es, it will become a matter of pubic record (*).

    (*) Pun intended.;)
