Yes, this is supposed to be for an iPad, I know.
When measuring an iPad or a MacBook or whatever, we should start adding the dimensions of these dongs into the specs. Now, we have not so portable or thin or light-weight devices.
If THAT scares you, I'd hate to see you when we actually get our flying cars and hover boards.
Seriously - shade gets tossed at Apple just like you’re doing now. This has been a solved problem for going on 5 years now starting with with the x86 surface tablet pro. How well has that sold to businesses or indivduals?
There is a disconnect between this continued criticism of Apple’s iPad and actual market sales or desire. Early Andriod tablets with say Adobe Flash (for the full web experience) should have sold better or, at least, later more refined tablets. But, noone else seems to be able to challenge the decidely self-crippled Apple iPad.
If Apple is so wrong and hard drive, wired keyboard and Logitech mouse functionality isn’t niche then *someone* should be able to get the right combination of weight, thickness, hardware and software correct to kick over Apple’s apple cart and strip the market from them. I mean, the product is there - surface and android tablets - the competition capable of engineering, manufacuring, and marketing such products. So why isnt anyone or any business buying in on this?
