(The New) iPad 3 Review – Solid unit, uninspiring upgrade
April 11, 2012
So the “The new iPad” or the “iPad 3” (depending on your preference, mine is for the latter) has been out for a couple weeks now. As is my custom, I got my hands on one (16 GB 4G Verizon) and took it for a test drive. Since the iPad 3 really has only a few features that are different from the iPad 2, I’m just going to talk about those features and my thoughts on the upgrades. The new upgrades are the processor (which I’m going to skip, yawn), screen, battery, 4G, and camera.
Woah, I should get Mom a Samsung Fascinate (Phones for the older folks?)

Nexus S CC-BY-SA-3.0 Luca VolpiNo, I don’t actually have any plans to get my mother a Samsung phone. For those living under a rock (or don’t have cable), that’s the recent tag line from a Verizon commercial. It’s a rather amusing commercial about a dude deciding that he should get his Mom a smart phone so he can send her pictures of his child… a child which doesn’t currently exist… but if it did he would name it Brian. A little odd, though amusing. It has set me to pondering about my own Mother’s need for a new phone and specifically how there are no good phones for the older generation.
Ok AT&T, I'm offically sick of you

Look, I understand that cell phones are imperfect devices. Hell, everything computerized is imperfect. That being what it is, I only have so much patience and I’ve reached my limit with AT&T Wireless. They suck, and they drive me up a mother loving wall. All I want to do is be able to make a bloody phone call, and I can’t. For years, I’ve accepted a multitude of dropped calls and dead zones, it is imperfect after all… When I can’t even walk down the damn street without losing my call, you’ve lost me as a customer.
