Apple Releases Television Commercial for 'The New iPad'


As it always does when it releases a new product, Apple has produced an elegant television commercial for the new iPad. Unsurprisingly, the ad focuses solely on the retina display, something that Apple feels sets the iPad apart from the other tablets on the market.

The ad doesn't talk about specifications or price. Instead, it shows the iPad being used to edit a photograph, read a book, watch a movie, and draw a picture.

When a screen becomes this good, colors are more vibrant. Words are pin sharp. Everything is more brilliant. Because when a screen becomes this good, it's simply you and the things you care about. The stunning Retina Display on the new iPad.

The brand is "Ipad". not ipad 7 or ipad 9 which is what would have happened.
Smart company. Is that an Ipad? you can answer yes, it is.


Exactly. You'd sound weird saying "I'm waiting for the Macbook Air 7"

You do realize it's just called "iPad" now...right?

"The new iPad" simply means it the new "iPad".

I have no idea how people are thinking they are calling it "the new iPad". Ummmm...hello?

They would never do that.

A little bit of research and looking around would have given you the answer. Or if you were to buy one, you would see it's just called "iPad". Or if you wath the TV AD...at the end it says "iPad".

Shall I go on?

Exactly. It's called the..wait for it...

iPad

This is no different then the saying "The New Camry"..the car model is called the "Camry"...the "new" just telling you it's the latest model.

Man some people are ridiculous.

What are they going to do when they come out with the 4th iPad model - the "newest iPad" or "new new iPad" or better yet, "new iPad 4". Sheesh, this is [stupid].

Hopefully smack you over the head with it for your ridiculous belief it's called "the new iPad"

Oh dear, Steve hasn't even been gone for that long and Apple is already making huge stupid decisions. The "New iPad"?!?! Are you kidding? Why not just iPad 3 - keep it simple stupid!

What are they going to do when they come out with the 4th iPad model - the "newest iPad" or "new new iPad" or better yet, "new iPad 4". Sheesh, this is retarded.

Aside from that, the iPad itself is pretty cool, I'd be curious as to the quality of the pictures it can take, even though its only a 5 megapixel camera.

This is a great beginning, but can the new iPad replace a MacBook?

I want to know if I can get by with an iPad in place of the MacBook, or do I need a new MacBook?


Hum... you do realise that only you can answer that. No one here can tell you what your needs are.
