128 Gb of porn? Slacker.
 
2013-01-28 08:25:32 AM  
The keyboard can simply be wiped clean.

So I've heard.

Just put in a goddamn micro SD slot already.

It's the kind of amazing innovation like this that will push Apple to unparalleled levels of growth.

For ease of transfer between standard cameras and an Ipad?

What's the point of that much storage in a tablet? Isn't everything in the cloud now?

Because it woudl let you buy say, a 16 gig one, and buy cheap 32 or 64 gig micro sd cards to get more stage for the money. Also makes it easier to transfer photos or video straight form a camera or other micro sd card using device.

Apple can't maintain a 400% profit margin by giving people cheaper alternatives.

BizarreMan: What's the point of that much storage in a tablet? Isn't everything in the cloud now?


Because many people have the irrational belief that they need lots of storage space.

(In fairness, if you're using it as a photo viewer, then I can understand why you need the capacity).

I have found that, in general, almost all of my computing needs, OS and all, fits in about 80 gigabytes. There's about 40 gigabytes perpetually unused in my 120 gb SSD.
 
2013-01-28 09:40:35 AM  
If you purchase the Camera adaptor slot you can copy data from the iPad to the micro SD flash cards that the Camera adaptor holds.
Sure it isn't 'more flash' for the system, and you can use it to move data on/off of the iPad quickly.

128 GB... all MY porn?

I don't think so subby. Daddy needs a couple new 2TB drives.

No SDcard slot, but I can plug a USB stick into it and play videos directly off the stick.
 
2013-01-28 10:05:10 AM  
So at $100 per 16GB increment, this iPad should cost somewhere over $1000?
 
2013-01-28 10:20:35 AM  
Why would you use a different camera when there's such a great camera on the ipad?
 
2013-01-28 10:26:03 AM  
I don't think 128GB even covers just the images in my porn collection.
 
2013-01-28 10:26:31 AM  
Apple is so good at throttling the performance of their own devices that people talk about 128Gb of storage space like it's some kind of technical revolution.

2013-01-28 10:31:21 AM  
whoa! stop the presses! you mean you can take your 64gb ipad, throw it in the bin and get a 128gb ipad?

Instead of say, a microsoft surface, where you get your 64Gb device and simply add a 64Gb memory card?

It will make wasting nearly $800 seem cheap...
 
2013-01-28 10:31:38 AM  
Hoorah!

Good news for iPad owners! Surface owners looking in disappointment as 128gb Surface Pro only gives you 82gb of space to store your pron... 64 gigabyte Surface owners you'll be getting just 26 gigabytes of pron.

The Surface at least has a MicroSD.

What? Apple has come out with a way to store 128 Gigs of data in your hands?

Babyboomer Jesus Jobs has done it again!!  When do I get to stand in line?

Because it makes life easier and is holding it back, we have almost our entire movie collection on SD cards and can watch anything when we travel.

moothemagiccow: Why would you use a different camera when there's such a great camera on the ipad?


I did the "Cave of the Winds" tour at Niagara Falls this summer with the kids. If you haven't done it, you get to walk right up to the base of Bridal Veil Falls and get blasted by the water- it's actually really fun.

And yes, there was a guy there holding up his iPad to get a movie of it. I honestly can't imagine the thought process involved there.
 
2013-01-28 11:29:38 AM  
I'm confused, haven't they already released the iPad 4?

Maybe if you're on wifi. 3G sucks, and on 4G you'll nuke your monthly data cap in an hour.

Yup.

Let's not forget offline navigation. Good maps take up space. Also, how do you stream movies on a flight?


More memory is always a good thing, but I do detest Apple's price premium that is way out of proportion to the memory upgrade... and the continued lack of an SD slot.

Never happen. Hell, android phones are losing them so carriers can up-sell higher capacity variations.
 
2013-01-28 11:49:11 AM  
Who still stores porn. Streaming is where its at.

Not to mention the entire concept of portability is inherently defeated when you're always required to be tethered to wi/fi/4G to access your data. It's my data and my paid for content, and I want to access it just as readily on my device on a long bus ride backpacking through Vietnam as I am in my apartment.

Absolutely true.

HP's "iPad killer" HP Touchpad had the same damn flaw. HP's execs' big idea was that they could upsell 32GB models for a $150 premium. Unfortunately, they didn't have Apple's brand loyalty to command unreasonable prices.

I own both a Touchpad and an iPad1, and to be honest, the Touchpad is probably slightly better... but the lack of SD slots is always grating.

No, I don't want to use "The Cloud" because the only time I get a decent speed is when I'm on WIFI. Cell data sucks in this part of the world (Montana, USA)

I could have told him that for free. Non-apple, non-google tablets have a well-earned reputation for being laggy pieces of shiat with tiny batteries. And HP, despite its recent efforts to re-brand, is still a damned printer company.

elchip: I'm confused, haven't they already released the iPad 4?


They did, they just didn't tell anybody about it.

It's got an iPhone 5 power jack thingy and is a bit faster than the 3rd gen. I think the idea now is that new iPad releases will be in the Fall from now on -- no more in the spring. I think Apple was worried that people would skip a spring release in anticipation of a later better fall release. This way it'll be one a year, hopefully preventing that behaviour.

They do make a dongle for that, it's not like its impossible.  I'm on my third iPad, and I've downsized each time.  I stream all of my content, so really the only thing stored locally for any length of time is apps.  Even in remote locations (camping in northern Alberta, etc) I haven't had any trouble hitting and streaming from my media server or slingbox.
 
2013-01-28 12:59:13 PM  
I really thought this time Apple would rest on their laurels and just shut down production of all future devices.

The Hp Touchpad was not laggy or crappy in any way. It's a pretty slick beast. WebOS was a great OS, much easier and cooler than Apple or Android. But no apps.

Mine runs Android now.
