Hello Every one,

It is well own truth all the computers , laptops , notebook have usb port. Why you guys at apple did not include usb port in ipad.?

Please now a days usage , usb drives and it has come part of our daily lives.

I cannot still understand why the apple remove the most essential part ie usb that the common man uses. Apple guys needs know that the people prefer notepad instead of ipad. I have read about the customers feedbacks.

I am very confused. I am person who uses usb ports in my personal laptop. Why should I prefer to use ipad ? In the first place.

Please tell me. My friends have asked for buying my opionion regarding buying ipad. What kind of information should I tell them , because they use usb ports very frequently.


Regards,
Phijo

I sympathize with you Phijo. I'm still gonna love my iPad, but they could have done better with the hardware in some instances.

of course they can do better, my self i dream a web cam in my iPad but it’s not so i live with that …. USB it’s more complicated as they will have to manage and check what file you put in (security reason) … so is not simple like this just ad USB port and storage place …

Imagine a virus include in one file and got access in all your contact and send the virus to all …. what will be the trouble and the media release in case like that ??

imagine that one second please

sometime what we dream is not possible to do for many various reasons

hi so why not just ignore iPad and buy android tablet ??

If a product does not have the features I want, I don't buy it. I also don't then go on a forum about the product and complain about it. Instead I focus my energy researching to find a product that does fit my needs. Get what you want, use what you want..... Freedom of choice in consumer electronics is a good thing.... :) If all products had the exact same feature set, what would be the point?

Why take usb off the iPad? The same reason you cut the balls off your dog. You don't want it to reproduce documents without permission.

Its simple, Apple can do whatever they want and people will still buy the heck out of it. BTW, the Camera Connection Kit which connects the iPad has a USB port which you can plug your external HD or flash drives to, granted if you jailbreak it first.

At extra cost of-course, and it still won't do everything you want it to do.

Times are changing

It's all about cloud computing. Why worry about losing or breaking a flash drive when you can have everything in the cloud and save to apps like dropbox?

I think apple is about changing the direction of the industry NOT going with the direction. Wires are messy and annoying, I'd rather see more over wireless technology any way. Storage over the cloud and local peripherals are bluetooth.

The only thing that wires are for are major file transfers and power, becasue I think wireless power is called lightning.

That's my take on it. Apple is changing the industry and I think it's positive. Do you still need a laptop or other computer? Yes.

So there we are.
