iPad Envy

Back in January when the iPad first came out, my reaction was pretty meh. There were a number of points about which I was unimpressed or underwhelmed.

Yet now, a mere 9 months later, I keep thinking I want one. What’s Apple done to me? Don’t they already have enough of my money?

There’s all these rumours spinning around too, about a next-gen iPad. Maybe coming next year, or maybe coming before x-mas. It’ll be smaller, or it’ll be the same size. It’ll have a higher-resolution screen, or maybe it won’t. It’ll be faster. It’ll have more memory. It’ll have cameras. It’ll make toast, walk the dog, and cure cancer.

So I don’t know…

  • I want one.
  • I don’t want one.
  • I need one, to test my own apps during development.
  • I don’t really need one, my apps aren’t optimized or made for the iPad.
  • I would like one, so I can optimize some of the business websites for the iPad.
  • I don’t need one as the iPad has a big enough screen that it’s like using a regular computer, so the business sites don’t need to be modified at all.

I want one now. I don’t want one now, I want to wait till November to see if there’s any announcements.

If I wait till November and there’s no announcements, maybe there’ll be an announcement in January. So then I should wait another month or two.

But I want one now.

Dangit.
