    How Long Do I Have?

    So...

    My iPad 1 has been a constant companion. Sadly, I am one of the rare "poor" Apple customers. I know Apple is the, as they say, "Money Company" though and already I am losing access to the apps that I use (RIP DailyMotion) and it is only a matter of time before I lose "Art Studio" and that makes me sad. My iPad was a prize that I won for winning a small essay writing contest a few years ago, just before the iPad 2 came out.

    I can't afford to upgrade to a new iPad though.

    Part of me is a little upset, but I also understand that Apple can't keep updating old products.

    Anyone know the ballpark though I have before my iPad becomes naught but a wifi web browser? Some told me that I might get some additional use out of it if I "Jailbreak" it but I am pretty sure that within the year I'll be forced to consider my pad a paperweight... Anyone got a rough estimate (based on precedent of course) before i probably have to be ready to shelve it?

    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation

    I would say the iPad 2 is still good for a bit, as has the same hardware as the mini, as well as the current iOS available.

    If you're on a budget - treat it like a good car and drive it into the ground.

    When it's time to switch I know I'll want a gig pig. Hopefully the Mini will be available in a 128 format by then.
