    Just remember: iProducts are like Star Trek movies. The even-numbered ones are the best.

    I finally sat down with my husband and compared the 2nd and 3rd Gen iPads... (I have not done any stress/speed testing or anything, just compared photos.) We both felt the displays were very close in quality. Working with my new iPad for only a few days, compared to my 1st Gen, there is a remarkable difference in display and speed!! :D

    I haven't used the new iPad's camera yet, not sure when I will, other than sitting on a beach somewhere, or video chatting with my children and grandchildren once we move to Florida ;-)
    (I've had the Xoom for months and rarely use the camera on that. Yes, I'm a gadget nut!) :D

    Oh we got one too! We were near PDX over the weekend and took advantage of the no tax. LOL! This is our first time to have an iPad so it's very exciting! So far we are loving it. :)

    Do you live near Portland? I grew up there! Try to take advantage of the no sales tax every time I visit my mom.

    I live in downtown Seattle, but my mom lives in Vancouver, WA. We were visiting her for her birthday and since my parents live near PDX, we decided to pop by one of the Apple stores. The line wasn't long and there was no tax so we were like, let's get one!! Hahahaha!

    Ok so since this is my 1st time owning an iPad, I'm finding I have to re-purchase an iPad version for most of my apps. Otherwise, I'll be looking at a fuzzy resolution. Grrr...I wish all my apps had the + sign...-_-

    There was an article on Gawker where they sat down their interns, handed them iPad 2's, and told them they're the new iPads. Only 2 out of the interns could tell they were given the iPad 2. The others thought they were really the new iPad. You can't tell much difference. If I had an iPad 2, I'd get the iPad 4! :)

    Also, there was speculation Apple dropped the number b/c someone at AppAdvice wrote an article that it was annoying they were naming their products with numbers and letters (i.e. 3GS, 4S, etc).

    Now that Apple's stopped numbering the iPad, will they follow suit with the iPhone? I can imagine the confusion that's going to cause in future:

    "Have you got an iPad?"
    "Yeah, I do, it's the iPad"
    "1, 2, iPad or iPad or iPad or iPad?"
    "I dunno, it's just called iPad!"

    I supose they'll have to go by year of release?

    LOL!! Yeah really. I don't even know why they care what people think if they name their products with letters and numbers. (o_O) I think it's easier to differentiate them that way. Oh well. I guess they'll just refer to it as, "Oh I got the cool new iPad b/c it's a lot better than the less cool iPad." (insert sarcasm here) Hehehehe!

    :D ... or
    "Oh, my iPad is the one that weighs x grams, is y mm thick, has a z MP camera and uses SIRI mach 4, and came with iOS10" (draws deep breath)
    "Thats good, mine is a few grams less than yours, is about 10 microns thinner, has a camera 2 MP more than yours, uses SILI (the next step up from SIRI mach 4) and came with iOS13" (draws deeper breath)
    "Oh, cool, so it's the newest iPad?"
    "Yeah!" (breathes sigh of relief)

    I hope they keep the numbers, but get rid of the letters - those annoy me! Should be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...etc. What the heck is S for, anyway? :mad:

    S stands for speed Cat. Faster network connections, powerful processor.

    Bye the way, I think the new nomenclature is part of their new business model which will be introduced soon. It works in a way that three months after a new iDevice has been introduced the old devices will be self-destroyed remote triggered by Apple. So everyone needs the new iDevice - no confusion about names and different generations. It's that simple. :)
