Apple's new iPad is not called iPad 3 or iPad HD. Just… the New iPad. Somewhat like our Budget Terminal being named Budget Terminal, except that no one won a prize in the naming contest. Or like Marina Bay being renamed Marina Bay.
Will the next next iPad be called Even Newer iPad? Or iPad Baru Lagi? Or iPad Istimewa?
With a Retina display, 5mp camera & HD video, you'll still look like an moron taking photos & videos with your new iPad, but with higher quality.
But I have to say the 2048 by 1536 Retina display on the new iPad is very appealing. That's more pixels than my 1920 by 1080 27-inch monitor right now. Looking at my monitor now, I am so depressed. Maybe I need a 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt display.
Actually, I am more interested in the new 1080p Apple TV. I am already enjoying the current Apple TV a lot (requires US iTunes account) and watching Youtube and Vimeo on my big-screen tv is very shiok.
4G LTE on the new iPad will also be next to useless until Singapore gets decent (and affordable) 4G coverage.
In other news, my wife finally decided she wanted to try the Siri feature on her iPhone 4S. The UK version uses a male voice.
Wife: "I want to try Siri on my iPhone. Turn it on for me."
Me: "Don't bother. He didn't understand me."
Wife: "Maybe he will understand me better?"
