Forums - General Discussion - iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 due just five months after predecessors -Rumour

That's quite the Rumer!

No, seriously, they have saturated the market with enough iPads so far! I think they could wait off till a little later. Maybe build up some suspense?

Sounds about right. Apple need's it's slaves to "upgrade". Nothing like planed obsolescence to ensure your zombie fans empty their wallets for the latest thing they don't need. That's why I only keep one real Apple product around for developer purposes, but I rarely use it because my Hacintosh works better and is cheaper to maintain. Otherwise I usually follow a very "anything but Apple" approach to life. I love my Galaxy Note. If it break I'll buy the Galaxy Note 2, but the great thing about Android is it never feels out of date and there's no push to get you to throw an Android away for a slightly different "new" model.

Please keep in mind that the above comment was made by a man who considers The Great and Powerfull Woz (Steve Wozniak) a personal tech hero. The Apple I was his glorious gift to the world and the Apple ][ is the single most important achievement in computing ever made. Apple has not invented ANYTHING truly new since Woz left the company so many years about.

Long Live Woz!

Things are just moving too fast in phones and tablet market. What can a man can do? Have a laugh http://theoatmeal.com/comics/apple

apple are becoming to arrogant and greedy. they think people will update every 6 months? they are going to fuck them selfs if they keep this up

I am not going to blame Apple as much as the consumers who rush to buy the new product every year. They are more or less responding to the market pressure as in android land a product sometimes gets outdated in 3-4 months (hardware wise). Up here in the north (Canada) we have 3 year long contracts. I got ipride 3g back in 08 and it lasted me 4 years before it feel down for 100th time and i had to get a new non iproduct. What i am saying is people don't have to buy. Same with any luxury product. 

Also i avoid these rumours. I checked macrumours so much before iPhone 4S and 5 came out it gave me a headache. 

consumers certainly are to be blammed as well. i dont know why people stoped using things for more than a couple of months, honestly im starting to think they do so if because they dont really need those products and they need to buy something new because they get bored. personally when i get a gadget i use it for atleast 2 years

ohh and i read the news on eurogamer first, they said it was a "report" so i decided to make the thread, but when i read to source it said it was a rumer but i already started with the thread, so i made it anyway

ipad mini 2 will probaby be what it should have been with the first one already.


Exactly!

Now fix your title OP!

to be honest i don't really know a lot about those apple products, i just read something about the ipad mini on the toilet (like we all do right?) which wasn't that great.


Daddy iPad is known for having very powerful specs , iPad mini is fast and all but it doesn't compete with the other high end 7 inch tablets. 



iPhone/pad/touch/pod iteration x,y,z . Keep milking that cow till it's dry Apple.

lol, it's 2013 ffs, Apple fanboys or "slaves" aren't the only people Apple sells their iphone, ipad etc to. Majority of the sales aren't upgrades, get with the times internet tough guy.
