Went to window shop with my dad earlier, and he wanted to buy me an iPad as a Christmas present because I’ve been prattling about wanting an ebook reader since God knows when. But then… I discovered that an iPad have a lot of disadvantages and not worth the money, and therefore, I told my dad not to bother to buy me one as I could buy a powerful gaming system with that disgusting amount of money.
Here’s iPad’s disadvantages…
* Flash is not supported, so you won’t be able to watch most online videos or play online games. (Yes, folks… you can’t watch most porn movies too, so if you’re buying an iPad for this explicit purpose, you’ll get slightly frustrated)
* No USB support. You can’t connect your a PC keyboard, USB flash drive, USB hard disk, USB headset, wireless USB modem. (well you actually can a USB port, but you need an adapter… oh, what the hell!)
* No built-in card readers. Want to transfer your pictures of videos from your digital camera? You will need to buy a couple of adapters from Apple then. (yippie, more money for the seller?)
* No camera
Want to use your Instant Messenger with a web-cam… definitely not on Apple iPad.
* iPhone OS
Although you may enjoy multi-touch and applications for Apple iPhone, you can’t use most programs, because they work in Windows, Mac OS or Linux.
* No remote administration
* No multi-tasking. iPhone OS on Apple iPad works the same way as on Apple iPhone
* iPad allows to read ebooks…. but it doesn’t use eInk screen, so the feature doesn’t have much sense, as there’s glare and you’d strain your eyes.
* No HDMI
* No CD/DVD/Blu-Ray.
* Wi-Fi is not stable on many iPads.
* You need to hold iPad in your hands when watching videos (uh…that’s not so relaxing, isn’t it?)
Well, of course there’s advantage of using an iPad. You can actually show off that you got a disgustingly expensive gadget with you since it’s expensive and chic (can still show off even if you don’t actually know how to use it… that stuff is a babe magnet….)
Cleffairy: Does owning a DSLR camera makes you a photographer? Well, the answer is no. If you lack the skill to capture good pictures with a DSLR camera that you bought… that makes you not a photographer or a photo-blogger, but merely a camera owner.
ps:Â Have a merryÂ and blessed Christmas, folks. I’d be busy for my book launch for a couple of days. 😀
