Apple’s Hubris: The iPad

It’s big, has a pretty screen, but has plenty of meh, or according to some people: “it only does what??”. Yup,  ladies and gentlemen, Apple gives you its most “advanced technology”, the iPad and it still doesn’t support multitasking and Adobe Flash.

A good mind is a terrible thing to waste, and wasteful is what Apple has become with the iPad’s 1GHz processor. Maybe it’s just hubris on their part: “The iPhone didn’t do multitasking and yet we sold millions!”.

With such a nice screen I would probably want to browse YouTube from the comforts of my lazy boy, but nooo, the browser doesn’t allow that. Can I enjoy some Flash-based games like Tower Defense? No to that as well.

This device will most likely cause some “sheep” to question Apple. And if you were to ask me whether is it ok to plonk USD 500 for such a device? My advice would be hubris = rubbish.
