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?
