susanqylin's comment, March 8, 2012 6:35 AM
no, because I just purchased my ipad2 not long ago and it's fit for my needs. I don't see the point of upgrading unless there is anything major, i am a regular consumer who buys apple products for what i can use it for on the day to day, I'd like to want it in the first place rather than being sold something. Ipad2 I was interested in and benefited me a lot in my day to day life, that'll continue for as long as it works. Ipad3 really isn't going to change my life much at this point. so No I wouldn't pay full price for it...maybe it's time apple turn these upgrades into membership privilege, this may work for extreme apple fans out there. I am just an ordinary user.
Apps for iPads's comment, March 8, 2012 10:01 AM
I agree with you Susan!
I upgraded to an iPad 2 last year b/c it was a substantial upgrade but the "New iPad" simply does not give iPad 2 users enough of an upgrade to warrant the cost.
I will not be buying a new iPad this year either.

The Joy of Books

"After organizing our bookshelf almost a year ago (http://youtu.be/zhRT-PM7vpA), my wife and I (Sean Ohlenkamp) decided to take it to the next level. We spent many sleepless nights moving, stacking, and animating books at Type bookstore in Toronto (883 Queen Street West, (416) 366-8973)."
