Snippet: No Interest in the New iPad ☇

Shared on March 26, 2012

The Next Web’s Drew Olanoff explains why he’s not in a hurry to get the new iPad:

A lot of my geekier friends were shocked that I didn’t pre-order the new iPad. At first, I was surprised as well. After all, I’m an Apple fan and love everything that they create. When it comes to the iPad though, I can’t think of a single feature or function that the company could add to it that would make me want to buy one.

I can see where he is coming from, since the MacBook Air is probably the closest Mac you can get to iPad-style portability. For me, the iPad has become my everyday computer when I’m not at work—it gives me a focused, stress-free experience without jumping to doing work or worry about a million things going on. Plus, its battery life is way better than my MacBook Pro.
