    I'm curious here. Is this a forum about the likes and dislikes about your apple product...or is it just a lovefest? I've noticed if you say something negative, the thread gets "closed down pending review.". Not everyone is happy...That's why there is competition. I came here to find out if other people were having issues with their iPads. I'm sorry if I'm not wealthy enough to keep up with Apples technology and can go out and buy a new iPad every time a newer version comes out. But I paid $800.00 for my iPad two years ago..I should NOT be limited on upgrades...not on a two year old device. Alot of my apps can't even be upgraded because I can't download the latest upgrade. Ive paid for alot of these apps...now I'm not able to use them to its fullest potential, and that's OK? I don't think so!

    It may not be okay but that is the way it is. Technology moves fast and old hardware can't keep up with new software. Oh and their will always be fan boys.

    I've posted things positive and negative about Apple and iDevices, and have never had a prob with that on this forum.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and no one is obligated to agree with you.

    A Kool-Aid drinker who blindly defends, praises, loves any brand or product.

    There's plenty of negative comment here. No thread has ever been closed because of a stated opinion, and never will be.

    Differences of opinion are encouraged. If we all had to toe the same line, I, for one, would be looking for a different outlet to spout my garbage.

    So long as the rules are followed, there's no reason to assume any topic is off the table.

    Incidentally, with the exception of a few members, no one here has the kind of wealth to be spending on every new toy as soon as it comes out. Many if us use older equipment, and find few limitations.

    Computers and electronics used to be obsolete out of the box. That's less true these says than it once was, but we will still be left behind to some extent.

    Charbarot--Everybody is certainly entitled to their opinion whether it is positive or negative as long as it is delivered in an appropriate manner. Having said that, this is an iPad Forum that is not affiliated with Apple, but a privately owned forum. This is a community that has something in common, that we enjoy our ipads. Yes, there may be differences here and manage to have discussions that are appropriate and respectful.

    Regarding your frustration of your ipad and the money spent, many share your feelings as well. Hope things shape up.

    Oh and by the way...lovefest, no not at all. Many of us own Apple and Droid Tablets and are very happy with both. :)

    It's not a lovefest, but it's also not a place to carry on a whine-fest about things that none of us can do anything about. When threads start drifting into just a whine-fest, with no worthwhile discussion or content....

    The problem with the iPad 1 is that it just doesn't have the RAM to handle the new and upgraded apps. It only has 1/4 of the RAM that an iPad 3 has. Apple would not be doing you a favour if they allowed an upgrade to iOS 6.0.1. That being said, all your purchased apps will still be there in your purchased list if you ever do upgrade.
