Upset About the iPad 4th Gen? Get Over It!

It took a mere seven months to make the iPad 3, aka “The New iPad” aka the “iPad with Retina display” (or whatever you want to call it) not only last gen, but no longer in production. Given the fact that many people bought their hot “new” iPad only months ago, many were also left in dismay as Apple threw a curveball in their upgrading schedule. Apple has created an ecosystem, enticing their loyal followers to constantly crave the latest and greatest gizmos and gadgets. Usually, we have at least a year to bask in such a luxury. Not this time, and it left many iPad fanatics feeling short-changed and cheated. However, with the introduction of the iPad mini, and taking into account that the iPad 3rd Gen is a great machine, this was a necessary move. There’s absolutely no reason to complain. Here’s why.
 
Apple has had a long history of hindering their own sales with new products. This is exactly what they were trying to avoid with iPad mini. It’s obvious now that to penetrate the sub-8 inch tablet market, the mini was a must. However, this couldn’t happen at the expense of diminishing iPad sales. So Apple revved up the iPad and gave it some fancy new specs (Dual-core A56x chip). This makes the 4th Gen run twice as fast as its young predecessor.
 
But we must not forget that for some reason, the iPad 2 is still around, sporting virtually the same software as the iPad mini. In other words, the iPad 3 is far superior to both the iPad 2 and mini, so why complain? You still have a retina display. iPad 2 and mini owners can’t say that.
 
So calm down. Take a chill pill. Think for a second that you have an iPad running an A5x chip, which still touts the retina display. Again, the 2nd Gen or mini falls short of such accommodations. If anything, you’ve got a collector’s item, a product that no one else can find. Go ahead; give yourself a pat on the back rather than a smack on the head. And remember, when that iPad mini 2 comes out with its own retina display, you’ll forget all about any aforementioned iPads to begin with. And since Apple has shaken up its product timetable, it could be any day now.
