The “new” iPad
Apple introduced their “new” iPad today. As soon as the online store starts functioning I’ll be placing an order. (Then I’ll be updating my relevant iPad App Store titles to take full advantage of the retina display!) One thing I’d like to mention about the post-Jobs Apple: new naming scheme for products is terrible. When they come out with the next iPad model, this new one won’t be new anymore, but its official name will still be the “new” iPad. Yuck. Plus the recent naming schemes for phones and such has been a sequential numbering system, interspersed sometimes by the letter “s”. This iPad should have either been called iPad 2s or iPad 3. This is going to get mega-confusing mega-fast.
