    In a way, I'm glad Apple did this. It was a reality check for me, and I was finally able to get over the " have to have the latest model" game. No more. I'm already sorry that I jumped on the iPhone 5 bandwagon so soon- should have just kept my 4s.

    I may upgrade to the iPad 5, then again, I may not. Maybe I'll wait for the 6!

    Geez what a bunch of whiners...

    I've had my iPad 3 for less than 3-weeks....
    Am I disappointed? Not one bit......

    Technology marches on (thank God) and I purchase when I feel the time is right for me and the product has what I want.
    Is anything different now from when I purchased my iPad 3? No!

    It still works flawlessly, does exactly what I want it to do, and I continue to be thrilled using it.

    If anyone here thinks they got ripped off by Apple, shame on you. What do you expect with technology?
    Time doesn't stand still....
    It changes every day and if you are going to wait for the latest and greatest thing to come along you will never purchase anything.
    I feel sorry for those that just have to have the latest and greatest of everything....must be a bummer to never be happy.

    Three week old iPad 3 owner here and happy as can be......time <and technology>marches on.

    I'm happy the iPad 4 was announced today. It is a nice bump in specs, and I can't wait to get my hands on one to see the performance increase! Will it replace my iPad 3? For the first time in years...I don't know. But I will totally have an iPad mini to compliment my iPhone 5, iPad 3 and new iPod Touch!

    Apple is STILL the great, innovative company it has always been. And I can't wait to see where they go from here. Things are looking up, apple fans!
    Life begins, and spirits rise,
    and they become memories that vaporize,
    and the vapor becomes the dreams we devise,
    and while we are dreaming...
    Time flies...

    I'd read speculation beforehand that the full-size iPad would get the lightening connector, so I thought they might do a little additional tweaking, like they did with iPad 2 (there's an older version and an upgraded version), but I didn't expect such a significant upgrade about mid-year into their product cycle.

    I'm tempted by iPad 4 because of the improved wifi and HD FaceTime, among the other stuff. I'm wondering how HD FaceTime looks if you use an iPad 4 and the other party uses an older iPad, though. Like do both parties need iPad 4 to get the benefit of better viewing?

They are quickly gaining a lot of tablet market share. When the iPad first hit the market it had few if any competition, that was then this in now. I wonder just how many really care about how thin their tablet is. when I see these ultra thin TVs being hyped in adds, I just laugh who really cares how thin their TV is?
    You should buy one of those if you need an SD slot. You will not be seeing a slot in an Apple product.

    I do care how light my tablet is. Makes a bit difference in how I can use it.

    Sorry to sound like a cranky old man, but I'm spitting blood about this.

    I'm not a IT guru like most of you guys. Just a simpleton and I'm feeling so much like a mushroom (which upsets me more)......

    I'm told that Samsung are guilty of similar behaviour with their tablets.
    Samsung has more tablets than everyone.
