    I know what you're saying. I just felt that by dumping an item that fast they screwed me. I may go back to Apple down the road. I swore off of Android a couple of years ago. I'm one of those that you mentioned. I consider resale value when making a purchase. Apple just IMO, took money from my wallet by doing this. The high resale value is what allows me to update yearly. I do believe the 3 wasn't ready. Hindsight is always 20/20, but the lightning connector is the giveaway. Oh well, different strokes for different folks.

    Took money from your wallet? Dude u bought that it was a conscious decision. And yes this is technology it's always advancing. How about Motorola Razr owners who bought one then a month later they released the razr maxx with a lot more battery. Not hating on you but it is what it is and to take it THIS personally is a little crazy, to literally sell your iPhone 5 and iPad 3 is screwing yourself over IMO and I bet that u will regret it down the line. Or maybe this was bound to happen with you eventually regardless of if apple came out with the iPad 4 this soon or not. Your iPad 3 was working fine and u just hyped yourself up enough to sell it. The iPad 4 is just a refresh nothing major , it was already ultra fast and now it's faster, but probably not too much to really matter. Good luck I hope u eventually realize what u want out of technology

    I was unhappy with my $500 item being discontinued so soon. Like I said, Steve Jobs is gone and it's starting to show.
    I will express my discontent with actions as well as crying.
    I sold my iPhone 5 and iPad 3. I replaced them with a Galaxy S3 and a Nexus tablet. I'm done with Apple.

    Ha uhm, in case you haven't noticed, it's worse on the android side. That galaxy s3 is already surpassed by the LG Optimus G, and your nexus tablet is one-upped by the nexus 10.

    The lightning connector is the giveaway that it wasn't ready for the iPad 3, not that the iPad 3 wasn't ready for market. It also proves that apple wanted lightning on its highest volume products first, then filtering to the iPads.

    The Optimus G doesn't surpass the S3. It's from a different company and while it may have a better processor, it's not a better phone. The S3 is still better in most respects.

    And the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 are in completely different categories, just like the iPad and iPad mini. One doesn't one-up the other just because it's newer. The Nexus 7 is still the best small Android tablet.

    Ironically - Android devices tend to get discontinued and superseded more quickly than Apple products lol

    Is there a reason for you to be here if you're going to do nothing but rag on Apple & its products? Read all you want... but if all you're going to do is carp about stuff when you post, there's not a lot of sense in that... smh. And I'll take you up on the ignore thing - my forum ignore list just went +1.

    That's not what we're talking about. The s3 is now outclassed and no longer king of the android hill. It doesn't matter that the Optimus comes from lg, because they're all android. (You shouldn't even bother trying to argue this with me, because I've lived through Androids ridiculous cycle. )

    Dude this is how technology works. You're being a huge crybaby about it. When you buy any electronic, you should expect it to be "new" for 6 months. Anything after that, you're now using something that's "old" news.

    Stop buying electronics -- especially Apple made products -- if you don't like it!

    I liked the concept of a smaller iPad but thought I would wait for retina being I have an iPad 3. And then I held a mini. And I checked out the screen and it is still very nice(retina screen is perfect). And then I bought one.

    Moral of the story, if you hold one, chances are you buy one. They are that nice.

    To be honest, it's all just numbers. My old man still uses an iPad 2, and my Mum an iPad 1, I've never seen either of them squinting trying to read the 1024x768 screen. Similarly most games are optimised to work on iPad 2 still, and with the iPad mini out, they will continue to be. You might lose one or two special effects that the iPad 4 shows but generally Apple's stuff is very optimised and it lasts. They're just revising their products to keep up to date like they always have done with iPods. I knew iPad 3 was a stopgap system when I saw they removed the number from the name, the iPad 2 was only 6 months after the first also.

    They may bring new stuff out quickly but they ensure that your purchase will last you a long time. It's better to move away from the "latest and greatest" school of thought as tech has always moved this fast. This one may have a faster CPU but it was mainly an upgrade to get the lightning connector into the thing.
