    I must admit, I was rather surprised how 'hard' my comments were taken. Will think twice before I comment again...

    Nick, I didn't see anything wrong with the two post made by you in this thread.

    Fixed up your language and spelling a bit. Hope you don't mind. But, to the point, iPad2 has just provided a major upgrade in the graphics department and the developers for gaming are going to take advantage of that and bring on some great games. The demand for the graphics support is tough for iPad so they will stutter, and pixelate ... shading and textures will not look near so good, etc. The key will be tagging so ipad owners won't buy gaming programs (apps) developed for better equipment. That's the real world. It is way it is ... arguing won't change anything.

    That was part of what I was originally asking. Seems there should be a way of notifying iPad 1 owners before they purchase an app that will run poorly on their machine, that said app is optimized for iPad 2 and buyer beware, etc. Myself, I generally try to get some info about apps before I decide to buy them. But I've bought apps that weren't iPad apps, instead were really iPhone apps. Generally not a problem, but I like landscape mode and try to avoid non-landscape apps. In the case of the iPad 2 however, there may be a significant degradation in performance even though the app "runs" on iPad 1, it really "needs" to be ran on an iPad 2.

    I'm not sure there won't be some angry people when they feel they've been led to believe the app will run fine on an original iPad, when in fact, it really may not run well at all.

    Anyway, when I posted that, I was still on the fence whether to buy iPad 2 or not. I've bought one, so it's moot for me. Not the case for those that have the original though. And, since I passed my old one down to family, it matters to them.

    Thus far, the app store doesn't have a feature that differentiates apps between iPad 1 and iPad 2, that I've noticed. That may result in impacts on customer satisfaction, and possibly, future sales.

    Perhaps the apps should be labeled similar to how the * key indicates compatibility, maybe ** for iPad 2 or something. I want credit if they use the ** thing! LOL.

    And this is only week 2. More and more sophisticated apps will be released that only run on the new iPad. We can call it progress, or planned obsolescence, but it's the reality of computing devices.
    Not completely true buddy. I have imovies on my ipad1 :-)P it's runs perfectly fine with no slow down. Only thing is I can't take videos with my iPad and load them in since ipad1 has no cam. BUT I can still load my vids from my digital cam or phone and edit them in there. So for the record, imovies works perfect on ipad1. U just can't get it from the app store as it'll give u that error. There are ways and workarounds for this. I didn't have to hack anything to get it working. I just knew where to look. Samething with FaceTime. It can run on ipad1 also. Only thing is the other person can't see u but u can still see and chat with them. Better thn not working at all..lol. Garage band works fine also, as I have it. There's workarounds for everything, mostly, people. There hasn't been no real deal apps released yet to showcase and enable the true power of the ipad2 extra CPU increase and graphics capabilities. Photo booth may be the only one so far. Ipad2 updates of certain games like Infinity Blade, Asphalt6, and Dead Space still look nearly identical to ipad1 counterpart. As time goes on, more apps will take "Real" advantage of ipad2 stuff and those apps will most thn likely be started from scratch. Not rehash of ipad1 titles just because it has a minute amount of finer detail.
    Not entirely true. How deep have you created projects in iMovie? It's not a matter of if it will run, but a matter of how well itnruns with complex projects.

    GarageBand is a perfect example. I ran it on my iPad 1 and it was fine until I actually created a song with 8 tracks full of smart instruments. The app became almost unusable even after closing down all other apps and performing a hard restart. Most any editing operation, even just muting a track required the app to "optimize" the track which forces you to sit and wait while the play head slowly sweeps across your entire project. This made the app slow and frustrating.

    On my ipad2 switching from instruments to the mixer is faster, and I never have to wait while the app continuously optimizes on fullsize projects. Everything is instant and seemless. (it does still occasionally save the project, but thats very quick) I'm sure the old iPad has to render the midi tracks to audio to make up for lack of ram, CPU power, and graphics excelleration, they just like to call it "optimizing."

    It's a simple matter. If a future app needs a dual core processor, more ram, and 7 to 9 times the graphic acceleration the iPad 1 is just not going to cut it. Hardware does make a big difference.
    Imovies for iPad is not the same as Imovies for the mac. Projects can only be but so complicated or complex running on imovies for iPad whether ipad1 or 2. You not going to make Steven Spielberg quality movies on ipad1 or 2..lol. I can see where u coming from though. Of course the faster speeds and processes of ipad2 will make those apps run smoother...not a news flash there. Plus my garage band doesn't run as slow as u making it seem and I have done 8 tracks with smart instruments. I know the optimizing part u talking about but it's nothing that's unbearable. I'd rather have it running on my ipad1 thn not at all. Like I said before, there are no " Real" apps started from scratch to take advantage of the real power of ipad2, it will though in due time. Don't down the original iPad cuz if it weren't for that, ipad2 would never exist. How soon people forget how revolutionary and record breaking the original iPad was. People too fixated on numbers and specs these days. What u gonna do once ipad3 rolls out and people owning those will trash talk ur iPad 2? Lmao
