A Few Quick Thoughts On the iPad 2.

Everyone has been making a hubbub about this new iPad 2 coming out in America quite soon (March 11th) and the rest of the world not soon after (March 25th). I have something to say, and it is very hard. You see, I have been a bit of a hater when it comes to Apple and their products. I can't wrap my head around using a Mac, am not a fan of iPods because I don't like lower sound quality than the .wav files that make up CDs, or even the quality of good ol' vinyl records, and don't get me started on the iPhone and how before Verizon it was essentially useless to have but now is a bit better even though I'll take an Android-powered phone over an iPhone any day.

With all this hate I have for Apple, it is painful to say I actually really sort of want an iPad 2. I was interested in the first iPad, but was hesitant to see if it did well. Now there are all sorts of fun games and apps it and is like having a handy psuedo-computer on the go. I want to get one and play all the fun games and mess with the various programs and otherwise have a ball. The thing is, I don't have the money to spend on it, even without the 3G or 4G option which I wouldn't take anyways as I'd just use internet because I'm not getting roped in to another service plan besides my phone. Perhaps if I had 500 smackers lying around I'd spring for the cheapest model, but I need the money I have for basic living expenses like food, clothing, and of course comic books. Still, for some reason I just really want it. Sigh.
