    I got my Ipad 3 months ago and absolutely love it. I was just wondering if anyone else gets loads of comments from "AntiPaders" i.e: people who don't own an Ipad but still love to tell you how useless they are.

    Has anyone got some good responses to shut the Antipaders up?

    Thank you!:)

    You already got your iPad 3? Oooooooo, awesome. Spill the beans on it mate



    As for anti apple peeps, and I know a lot of them, just ignore. Don't argue. Just don't enter petty squabbles.

    What a Forum, great technical advice and a sense of humour.

    I've never had that problem - in fact, precisely the opposite. Even after more than a year on the market I still get people coming up to me and asking about it. So I'm always happy to give them a demonstration and, having 3G, makes it even more 'gee whizz' because people are amazed I can do my emails and surf the web on the bus/train/ etc.

    And, of course, I always point them in the direction of iPad Forum...:D

    You can take Apple's position, "If you don't have an iPad, then, well, you don't have an iPad". ;)

    Once you learn to not care about what other people think, life becomes much more relaxing:D

    Here are my thoughts:

    Are you paying my bills?
    are you sleeping with me?

    If the answer is no to both of those then I just don't care what you think.

    I'm a mutt. I've got a Windows desktop XP and Windows 7 laptop, Windows 6.1 mobile phone, Android phone and Apple tablet because I got what works best for me and mine.
    Opinions are like arm pits, everyone has them and they sometimes stink. Opinions are like butts , everyone has one and they are sometimes crappy.
    I used to be the the poster child for anti Apple but I leaned years ago they were needed to push the other platforms forward and the other platforms are needed to push them forward.
    Insecurity is what causes one to not accept what you like or dislike, just ignore it or just compliment them on the clothes they are wearing to change the subject and stroke their ego so they'll go away.

    If I don't care about someone's rant, I just smile and walk away as they're speaking. It's disconcerting to them, and it means I don't have to listen to their drivel a second longer. :D

    Me, too. Was one of the original corps of Unix folks years ago in Berkeley. And I've been using PC's for nearly as long. Currently have a desktop, a laptop, and a netbook; all very capable systems. The iPad 2 is my first venture (other than an iPod) into the Apple ecosphere.

    I find it amusing that there's a dedicated cadre of anti-Apple folks out there. Just as rabid a group of fanboys (and fangirls) as the Apple-only crowd.

    The iPad is not a universal computing device. And in adjusting to it, I've found a number of attributes I don't like. But with a bluetooth keyboard it has largely replaced my netbook when I travel. Furthermore, it's the only "computer" I have that I can share with my six year old daughter and can even let her play with (largely) unsupervised.

    IMO no manufacturer has achieved the nirvana of a "killer device" that obsoletes everything else. The iPad obviously fills a rather broad niche somewhere between the capabilities of the best smartphone and a notebook. As better Android tablets are introduced, the iPad's weaknesses will be more widely recognized (or eliminated). But at the moment, its strengths and uniquely vast set of applications make it a game changer.

    Those who don't recognize the value of an iPad either don't have or don't know they have requirements that the iPad meets brilliantly.

    In some folks minds Apple= snob or snob wannabe. That is the biggest thing I run into, the whole " so you think you're all that now" just because I bought an iPad. Not a word said by me, just seeing it.
    Then there are those who I've never seen before, saw my Otterbox Defender case on my Windows phone, approached me with " is that an iPhone?" and as soon as I say " no, it's an", they are gone before I say " Omnia", the ones that ask, while I'm using it, is my Incredible an iPhone and as soon as I say no they are gone . Those are the ones that annoy me more than the ones who hate my Apple product.
    Either way it's a closed minded attitude.
    Life is too short to be a fanboi.

    Like some others, the iPad 1 was my very first apple device ever. I loved it enough to replace it with an iPad 2 on launch day.

    There are plenty of things that annoy me, but at the end of the day, I still generally manage to drain the battery to 30% or less... So I must still be using it quite a lot :)

    No device is perfect but the iPad fills my needs for light weight, fast general electronic entertainment with no almost no need to Fix anything (like the average windows PC that requires constant maintenance).

    All that said, not everyone wants or needs a tablet. Those people will NEVER understand the appeal of the iPad and you really are not obligated to make them understand.

    Just smile and start playing angry birds when they start ranting. :)

    In my opinion, slavish devotion to the iPad is not a good thing. Large Companies, including Apple, have a natural tendency towards hubris and need constant prodding to keep them on the path of innovation.

    I love my iPad, but there are shortcomings that I would really like to see remedied. The fact that I feel strongly about this is a sign of support for the iPad.

    I love my iPads, but no device is perfect. If something significantly better comes along, I'll switch. Competition is good. I see no reason to be devoted to any company, unless I own it. But I also see no reason to stand around listening to someone bashing a device I enjoy. If they don't like any device, don't buy it. Simple. I don't go around droning on about stuff I don't buy, lol.

    What are the short comings that you experience?
    Would be interesting to hear form others about what is not quite right with their iPads.
    If any thing.
    I personally have no great expectations other than what it can actually do.
    Daily I am amazed to learn something new.
    Some times we become blaze' about something which is utterly an amazing device.
