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 If it break I'll buy the Galaxy Note 2, but the great thing about Android is it never feels out of date and there's no push to get you to throw an Android away for a slightly different "new" model.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!

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.

The upgrade rate is what the market calls it when a costomer brings in a phone and trades it for credit on a new phone. There are plenty of people who hand the old one to their kid or sell it and buy a newest one for no other reason except that you're only cool if you have the latest iPhone.

Anyone who has never considered anything but an iPhone because that's what their fanboy friend told them to buy and it was the first so they won't try anything else is what I'm calling a zombies. I pitty them.

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


Exactly!

Now fix your title OP!


whats wrong with the OP tittle?

Rumour not rumers, or rumors if you live in the us ;D


oh thanks haha, english is a second language so forgive me if i make any spelling errors


It's ok, I am horrible at spelling myself.

Look at the font of my previous post, it came out that way because I googled it first then copied it from there, I wasn't sure of the spelling lol!



They should watch out, Activision tried the same kind of ploy with Guitar Hero: release more and more games every year which effectively killed the brand.



Signature goes here!

Well its just called "the new iPad" now. They can actually do as many refreshes as they want per year. The advertising is pretty simple to do and the hardcore Apple fans will buy all the new models.

I like Apple. I like my iPhone. But I think its ridiculous how fast they are pumping these things out.

Where is Iphone mini ?? i heard some rumours...

Apple strategy doesnt seem the best to consumers but business is business, i guess.

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?

quite a rumer indeed, but the thing is they did it before, didnt they release 2 ipads last year?

They released three iPads last year. One new iPad in the beginning of the year, another new iPad at the end, then the iPad Mini. They are milking the cow dry. (As someone else said.)



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

After seeing both their market share and their stock prices plummet in the past year, they are getting desperate to try and not become irrelevant again.

All the iPhones are small enough already!
